NOTICES


We welcome Fr. Geoff Bottoms to celebrate our Mass this Sunday.


RIP JOHN CONROY:  Many will have sadly  learned of the death of  John  via the What’s App group and from notices at Mass. John died peacefully at home on the 15th December at the great age of 95 years. He is now reunited with his beloved wife Carol.  John was a much loved member of our community.  He attended Kiveton regularly and St. Joseph’s and is greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughters Jill, Barbara, Sheila, Kate, Joanne and Isabelle and their families.  John’s funeral is on Thursday 18th January at 1.00pm at St Joseph’s Church followed by burial at South Anston cemetery.
