Dear Parishioners,

As many of you will be aware, St Joseph's Church at Hannahstown recently benefited from a new set of Mass vestments and these have received much favourable comment.


New vestments were necessary as the 'old' ones were dated and starting to show their age. The same is true of the vestments at St Peter's Church at the Rock. Having been purchased in the 1970s / early 1980s, these too have come to the end of their lifespan and will need to be replaced with new ones more suited to the celebration of mass. So we need now to purchase new vestments for The Rock.


Perhaps you or your family would like to sponsor a set of vestments for a particular season (PURPLE for Lent, Advent and Funerals / RED for Martyrs, Pentecost, Confirmation, Good Friday / WHITE for Holy Thursday, Easter and Christmas, Feasts of the Saints, Weddings / GREEN for the many weeks of Ordinary Time / MARIAN vestments for the great feasts of The Holy Family, Mary Mother of God, The Presentation of The Lord, The Birth of Our Lady, The Annunciation of The Lord, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary). 

If you would like to contribute towards / or sponsor the new vestments for the parish, either at Hannahstown or at The Rock, please contact me, Fr David, directly, or the parish office. Cheques can be made payable to Hannahstown Parish No.1 A/C and marked on the back 'NVA' (i.e. New Vestment Appeal).
