In October, the annual six-day retreat was held in St. Joseph’s. The retreat was preached by Fr. Austin McCormack OFM and was a valuable spiritual enrichment for all who took part. We thank Fr. Austin for sharing his time and wisdom with us. Fr. Austin was also staying in St. Josephs during the previous week and so was able to celebrate the Transitus and Feast of St. Francis with our community.
From 3rd to 6th December, Fr. Charles Serignat OFM Cap preached an Advent Triduum in St. Joseph’s. We thank Fr. Charles for sharing his insights into the Advent Scripture readings to help us prepare spiritually for the Feast of Christmas.
On Saturday 24th February 2018, Sisters Anne, McLaughlin, Rose and Clare Bernadette took part in a sponsored sleep out in Littlehampton in aid of Worthing Churches Homeless projects. The total raised by the Sisters was around £2,400. Many thanks to all who have supported them.
