With great regret, Fr Bill announces his immediate retirement. He had intended to stay on until September, but in view of a downturn in his health, the Diocesan Welfare Officer has advised him to step down now. He thanks all the wonderful people of St Joseph’s who have given him such excellent support over the last 18 years.

The Diocese will ensure that Sunday Masses take place as usual until permanent arrangements are made. Please remember Fr Bill and the parish of St Joseph in your prayers.
