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.

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!
