The Vision Group
The Vision Group was formed in 2021 following a series of “Let us Dream” discussions and reflections led by our Parish Priest. We will explore and create new initiatives, activities and events that will bring the people of our Parish together through prayer, witness and social gatherings. Our goal is to promote the Spiritual Growth and the coherence of our Parish, our Pastoral Area and our Local Community as we respond to Pope Francis’ plea for us to hear “The Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor.” We work alongside our parish priest and the PPC.
The members of the group are:-
- Trisha Ray
- Paddy Flynn
- Bel Flynn
- Leon Lennon
- Annette Moraes
- Martha Manuel
- Gloria Scott
- Kathy Hayes
- Bernice Fernandes
- Maria Cardozo
If you have a suggestion or would like to get involved with one of our initiatives, please talk to one of us.
“Thank you so much”! From CAFOD, Portsmouth Diocese.
Thank you to our parish volunteers at St Joseph’s, Maidenhead, for organising a soup lunch on Sunday 23rd October.
Patrick told me:-
“On Sunday 23rd October, Mission Sunday, parishioners of St Joseph’s Church enjoyed a fabulous Soup Lunch in the Parish Centre in Aid of CAFOD’s Family Fast Day appeal for the World Food Crisis.
Members of the Vision Group, the Mothers Prayer Group and the UCM united to provide three soups, crusty bread, home-made cakes, tea, coffee and biscuits to make this a fabulous event enjoyed by a truly International Congregation.
The sixty or more parishioners who enjoyed this sociable gathering lingered and chatted and many came back for seconds – and thirds! They were very generous, as always, in their financial support for CAFOD.
The cash amounted to £214.15, while the new lanyards, with the QR code attached, gathered even more donations. These funds will be added to the proceeds of the Family Fast Day collection. Many thanks go, also, to all the parishioners who helped to make this event such a success.
The parishioners of St Joseph’s are resolved to continue supporting the work of CAFOD around the World as we respond to the Cry of the Poor”.
This Season of Creation is an Ecumenical Celebration and we will welcome Parishioners from across the Maidenhead to show solidarity in Caring for God’s Creation, Our Common Home. The theme this year is :- “The Burning Bush”, “Listen to the Voice of Creation”
