Missio Mass at Swansea Cathedral

Our Missio group have been very busy this week!

We started the week with a special visitor that Canon Paul had invited to our school. The visitor was a lady from Missio UK who came to see all the work we have been doing as Missio ambassadors. We presented her with a cheque from our recent Missio box collection and she was very impressed with all that we do in St. Joseph’s! See the tweet below!


We then joined our fellow Diocese of Menevia schools in a wonderful Mass celebration at Swansea Cathedral!

The Mass was to celebrate Pope Francis’ extraordinary month of Mission. It was a wonderful occasion and lovely to take part in the Offertory and receive our Mission candle to burn brightly in our school.

In this month of October the Extraordinary Month of Mission

We reflect on the Catholic Virtues GENEROUS and GRATEFUL

We welcomed to Saint Joseph’s Missio Coordinator for England and Wales Mrs Shiela Isaacs and Missio Leader for Menevia, our RE Link Governor Canon Paul. Children  had the opportunity to chat with Mrs Isaacs about projects we have been working on in school.

We are following the Pope’s plea to 

‘Go and create a world of brothers and sisters!’

Pope Francis

Building on Year 2’s Assembly message of Laudato Si we are working on the main themes of the Extraordinary month of Mission

-To encourage a deeper relationship with Jesus through prayer

-To be inspired by the actions of our saints, like St. Therese of Lisieux and missionaries like Bishop Giovani Cefai in Peru.

-To increase our support of overseas mission


During the visit our Missio Ambassadors presented Mrs Isaacs with a cheque for £127  to support the work of missions overseas.

Thanks to all our  families and the community of Saint Joseph’s for your continued  support.
