Lord Mayor visits St Joseph's RC Church

May 30 2018

BRISTOL'S Lord Mayor paid a visit to St Joseph's RC Church in Fishponds recently and was impressed with what she saw.

The Lord Mayor, Frome Vale councillor Lesley Alexander, was keen to witness a special service and hear members of the church's music group sing.

Her visit was organised by Julie Jenkins who sings in the church's music group and sits on the committee at Begbrook Retirement Club with Cllr Alexander.

She said: "Our church is unique in that we host three different worshipping communities, ourselves who are St Joseph's, the Syro-Malabar Church of St Thomas and the Filipino Church. 

"It gave the opportunity for all of us to come together to welcome the Lord Mayor. We also celebrated the baptism of a baby and the Commissioning of Catechists for the young people being confirmed in the summer.  

"The Lord Mayor advised how much she enjoyed the service and how friendly all of the worshippers were. She expressed a wish to come again."
