Dear sisters and brothers,
I wish to address this thank you note to all our parishioners on behalf of the working committee for this year’s feast of St Joseph.
Through the intercession of our beloved patron St Joseph, we have seen through the feast celebrations peacefully and joyfully.
We hope you have followed through the 9-day novena Masses with spiritual enrichment and growth in relationship with God. Hopefully, as sons and daughters of our patron saint, our eyes and hearts are open to St Joseph’s ways such as being open to God’s plans and that we recognise dignity in our work as how Presiders described in their homilies.
We like to thank our parishioners for your devoted participation in this feast. The feast would not be possible without many of you coming forth in various ways through the BECs and families. A big “Thank You” to the BEC members for taking the time and effort to help make this feast a successful one. All of you have stepped up to help with the Mass animation for the 11 days and also prepared refreshments to be shared with our parish community. Our BECs have illustrated a community living and have truly worked to reflect the motto, often associated with St Joseph, “Ora et Labora” which is “Pray and Labour.”
I would also like to say a personal thank you to the working committee comprising members from PPC, PCC and other ministries such as BECCOT, Liturgy (mainly Choir, Lectors/Commentators, Flower Ladies and Altar Servers), PA System and many others. Your capable hands and close cooperation have made the preparations for the feast so much more enjoyable and meaningful. I hope this has been a good experience for you as much as it has been for me. I am unable to name each individual personally but you know who you are, you have done a great job and I am sure you will continue to keep up the good work.
Last but not least, thank you to our parish priest Rev. Father George for his guidance, support and valuable ideas in the preparations for the celebration.
Praise to you Lord Jesus for your love and we pray that you will continue to shower all of us with love and humility always.
Thank you. God bless you.
On Behalf of Working Committee,
“Lord, give success to the work of our hands.
Fill us at daybreak with your kindness
that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.
Let your work be seen by your servants,
and your glory by their children.
Lord, give success to the work of our hands.”
