The church is closed for public worship. Sunday and weekday Masses are suspended until further notice. 

Baptisms and weddings are also suspended.

 

Each day the church porch will be open from 9am until 5pm for those wishing to pray privately. The porch can hold only two persons at any one time. Parishioners coming into church should be careful to sanitise their hands.

Newsletters and Sunday Missalettes can be collected from the porch.

Families wishing to make arrangements for a parishioner’s funeral should telephone the parish priest in order to discuss what may be possible. While funerals can go ahead with a limit of up to 30 mourners, it is necessary to limit provision for a Requiem in church to practising families within the parish.

Public worship will resume with Sunday Masses from Saturday 5th December.

Weekday Masses remain suspended until further notice.

Welcome

The first Mass was celebrated at St Joseph’s on Christmas Eve, 1882. Since that time, the regular celebration of the Mass and the Sacraments has been at the heart of our parish community. This continues to be the case today.

At the present time, however, much has changed in parish life and the world, due to the pandemic. Yet the life of prayer goes on and continues to hold our parish together.

To keep up with developments in parish life—which can be rapid and sudden in the current situation—we very much encourage you to visit the website regularly and also read the newsletter.

Thank you for your visit!

Worship in Safety

When you come to Church please help keep everyone safe by:

  • wearing a mask
  • sanitising your hands on entry and departure
  • providing your contact details
  • allowing a steward to show you a place
  • keeping social distance

The celebration of Mass will be brief and slightly different so as to help keep us all safe:

  • No sign of peace
  • Holy Communion is distributed slowly so that you have time to adjust your mask and receive safely and devoutly
  • Holy Communion is distributed in the hand only
  • Once you have received Holy Communion people leave through the side door

Thank you for complying with these regulations. It helps us all.

Season of Advent

This year the Season of Advent will be very different. To help you to build the Church at Home, the Department for Formation has created a document of resources called Preparing the Way: Advent @ Home. You can download a copy by clicking the button below.

During Advent, there will be weekly reflections, videos and other resources on this diocesan web page and on social media.

Advent Appeal

Advent Appeal v2

In Advent we try to stay alert to the coming of Christ. We prepare to remember his coming to us in the flesh at Bethlehem and we consider how he will come again at the end of time. Meanwhile, we try to stay awake to Christ’s coming now. Jesus comes before us each day in our family and friends, in neighbours and strangers – especially those in need.

This Advent, to make our hearts ready for the coming of Christ and to welcome his light into our world we are making an appeal. Through the SVP we would like to help local families who are struggling this Christmas. We’d also like to decorate our church to be a beacon of hope this Christmas and to be ready to welcome believers to worship here. If you would like to help please drop a donation through the presbytery door or make a payment through the bank. Thank you.
