Our Parish, and its school, is proud of its long association with the Josephite Order which has continued for over 30 years through the presence of Sr Rose Wood, who retired from St John’s Parish early in 2014 and more recently through the work of Sister Cathy Dean as Pastoral Associate for our Parishes in Partnership during 2015 -2016. Currently we rely on various Josephite Associates within our Parishes to maintain our connectivity with the Josephite order.
