Fr Joe Photos Needed: As part of Fr Joe’s farewell gift I am putting a photo scrapbook diarising his time in our parish. It will continue on from the one put together for his 10th anniversary of ordination which was 2010. I am looking for photos from his 40th birthday celebration 2010, his participation in parish concert nights and dances, youth, soccer, events with various parish groups etc. I do not need Christmas or Easter photos. I would also appreciate photos for the video presentation. If anyone is able to provide 2 or 3 photos in digital – jpeg format, (preferably if they are to be used in the video presentation in high resolution rather than photos taken with mobile phones,) they can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or copies on CD or USB dropped off to the parish office or church sacristy in an envelope with your contact details so they can be returned after use. I cannot guarantee all photos will be used due to space limitations but my purpose is to show the huge involvement Fr Joe has had in the life of our parish in the time he has been here. Any questions please contact me on 0431148648 (by text not voice mail if there is no answer) or on 94018815. I need the photos no later than Monday 22nd January. With thanks, Pauline Egan
