The day began in earnest very early in the morning with Parishioners and Guests from other Parishes streaming in towards St. Joseph from all directions as early as 0600hrs.
The working teams were busy tying the loose ends and pitching up additional tents, ensuring that since the weather was threatening with an early morning cold front, all guests would be comfortable as much as possible.
The tempo changed at about 09:15hrs when the Fathers began to arrive in their vehicles; some in pairs and others in three some in the vehicles. One could tell that a big event was about to take place at St. Joseph. Joseph the Father of Jesus Christ, St. Joseph the Worker… St. Joseph the Patron of our Faith was at work already! It was his Feast!
Holy Mass began at 10:20hrs and all the expected guests in attendance; social distancing was fully observed under the watchful eyes of the Catholic Nurses Guild.
