I hope everybody has had a chance this weekend to visit St Joseph’s amazing history exhibition. Scheduled between 3rd – 6th October 2014, Archbishop Leo Cushley will be the principal guest as well as other Church & Civic dignitaries.
The DVD of the history of St. Joseph’s was presented on large screen in the Church on Friday 3rd October. However, if you missed it don’t worry, the exhibition and church tours will be open to the congregation and general public on Sun 5th October until 6pm then again on Monday 6th October from 11am – 3pm. Guided tours of the church as well as an exhibition of photos and artefacts will be staged in the Church Hall, which I have to say was impressive and well worth a visit. The hall was set out like a museum with amazing articles on the history of the church. Teas/coffees will be available. Publicity material is available with small history brochures to take away. Copies of the DVD will be available for purchase and all profits will go towards the Church Building Fund.
Im already being asked for the DVD. Out of respect and at the request of the priest, the DVD is not uploaded here or available anywhere online, so that it requires to be purchased to assist the church funds.
Having just returned from a great afternoon steeped in history , and meeting some kind people, I have to say I was absolutely stunned by how beautiful the inside of the church is. It truly is breathtaking, and that’s coming from somebody who has not seen the internal renovations until today. I would never have believed such a beautiful building existed in Blantyre.
Father Brian Lamb of St Joseph’s Church said, “This is a large event for the Church and the open weekend will be held in celebration ahead of the renovation works at the church. The DVD Living Stones was commissioned by the church and will be part of the forthcoming open event this weekend.”
