If you enjoy them, please share them with others, it may
brighten their day.

1. Prayer 🙏is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when you are in trouble, but it is a “Steering Wheel” that directs the Right Path throughout life.

2. Why is a car’s windshield so Large and the rear view mirror so small ?Because our Past is not as important as our Future. So, look Ahead and Move On.

3. Old friends are Gold, new friends are Diamonds.
If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold !. To hold a Diamond
you always need a Base of Gold.

4. All things in life are Temporary. If they are going well, Enjoy them, they
will not last Forever. If they are going wrong, don’t worry, they Can’t
Last Long Either.

5. Friendship is like a Book, it takes a few seconds to Burn, but it takes
Years to Write.

6. Often when we loose Hope and Think this is the end, God smiles from
Above and says “ Relax Sweetheart, it’s just a Bend, not the End.

7. When God solves your Problems, you have Faith in his Abilities.
When God doesn’t solve your Problems, He has Faith in your Abilities.


8. A blind person asked God “ can there be anything Worse than losing
Eye Sight ?. He replied “ Yes losing your Vision.”

9. When you pray for others, God listens and Blesses them, when you are
Safe and Happy , remember that Someone has Prayed for You.

10. Worrying does not Take Away tomorrow’s Troubles, it takes Away
today’s Peace.

Birthday celebrations for Irene.

Another wonderful afternoon celebrating Irene’s 100th birthday.
Irene looked beautiful, our own St Joseph’s Queen.
The hall was well decorated, delicious food and drink served and plenty of fun.
St Joseph’s line dancers strutted their stuff, they did really well having only less than half hour to learn the dance.

Great fun, good food and lovely company what more can one ask for.
Marian our activities coordinator presented Irene with a This is your Life Book,
It contains some really funny stories and proves Irene was hero in her day.
Marian also composed a song especially for Irene and to the air of Congratulations and all joined in singing it to Irene.

I think the video will speak for itself. 😅
Hope you enjoyed your day Irene, you are an inspiration to us all.

God Bless and protect you always.

Another 100th birthday at St Joseph’s. 🎂🎂🍰🍷🧁

The year 1920 must have been a vintage year, last month our May celebrated her 100th birthday and today our Irene celebrated her 100th. What an amazing achievement.
Irene Boyer born on the 12th October 1920, an amazing and inspirational lady.
We could fill umpteen books on her works throughout her life but I think our video will give you a good idea of this incredible lady.
She has quite a quick sense of humour and never fails to make us smile.
We hope you enjoy our video and we will be posting later Irene’s birthday celebrations this afternoon.
Irene you are truly a sensational lady and we look forward to celebrating with you again next year.

St Jeanne Jugan pray for us. ❤️

Today we remember with great love our beloved Patronage St Jeanne Jugan who was canonized on October 11th 2009 in the Vatican by Pope Benedict XV1.

St Jeanne Jugan a Saint for old age and indeed every age, she found Christ in the guise of the poor and the elderly

Father of the poor , you have never refused the prayer of the lowly. We ask you, therefore to hear the petitions that St Jeanne presents to you on our behalf.

St Jeanne Jugan please ask the Good Lord to direct, guide and protect us all during these very difficult times.

We wish you all a Blessed day. 🙏🙏🌹🌹

Comedy at St Joseph’s. 👏👏😂😂

Keeping the spirits of our residents raised during these difficult days is paramount here at St Joseph’s.
Marian our activities coordinator keeps coming up with various ideas to keep everyone entertained and her afternoon of joke telling went down a treat with our residents.
Joke after joke, all tailored to suit our residents, lots of laughter and hilarity, so lovely to see them enjoying themselves. 😅

These are just a taster of some of the jokes, I’m afraid there were too many to post.

Birthday celebrations for May our centenarian. 🍰🎂🎂🌹

What a wonderful achievement to reach the great age of 100 years old.
Dorothy May Higginbotham better known as May was born on the 24th September 1920 in Preston, Lancashire.
May came of age just in time to join the Auxiliary Territorial Services where she served in numerous admin posts with the Motor Transport Corps.
She always boosted that she could recognise the approach of an ambulance without its siren blaring by the distinctive tone of its engine even with her eyes closed.

She married her beloved husband Reg in 1947 and they raised a family and enjoyed a wonderful relationship until he passed away in 2003.
May remained constant to the Roman Catholic Church and for many years was an active member of the Salford Diocesan Catholic Women’s League through which she worked at forging relations with the Jewish community and championed anti-abortion rights for women.

May came to the Little Sisters of the Poor in 2007 where she enjoys wonderful physical and spiritual support from the Sisters and staff as her medical needs has increased.

It was May’s wish to reach 100 years of age and today May has achieved her goal. We hope you enjoyed your birthday May, all the cards, especially the one from the Queen, your presents, flowers and delicious cake.

We give thanks to the Good Lord for your long life and pray you will receive many blessings on your special day.

Happy Birthday May 🎂🧁🎼👏👏👏🌺🌹
