Our new Parish Priest has arrived, 6 months later than initially planned due to the ongoing restrictions surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. He writes a message of greeting below:
Dear brothers and sisters of St Joseph’s Parish,
Loving greetings to you in Jesus Christ. This little note comes to you from Fr Baji Joseph, SSP, the new parish priest of St Joseph’s Sighthill. I have arrived in Edinburgh on 30th January 2021 and following the government regulation, completed self-isolation on 9th February.
It is with great joy and hope that I take up the new responsibility. Hope to meet you all in person as soon as the condition permits. Meanwhile, I want to make known to you of my availability expected of a parish priest. As usual, we will continue with the online Mass and other spiritual practices till lockdown is removed. May you spend the season of Lent contemplating the life, passion and death of Jesus so as to rise with him on Easter day. I pray that the Lord protect you, keep you safe and in good cheer.
With loving and prayerful greetings
Fr Baji Joseph
