Please see the newsletter

Sunday Mass Times:

Capacity of St. Joseph’s is 140 and Holy Family is 100 to maintain 2 meter social distancing which sadly means that we must close the doors once we have reached full capacity. The church will be open 30 minutes before each Mass as it will take a while to get everyone into Mass safely. When you arrive, there may be a queue to enter into church. More details in the parish newsletter.

For those who are isolating or not able to come to church, Masses from St. Joseph's will still be live streamed. 

Bookings now being accepted for baptisms and weddings with limited numbers (30 maximum)

Looking forward to welcoming you all back.

Prayer For Spiritual Communion

If you are following Mass on any of the social media live streaming, Father Woolley suggests that during the silence after Communion, everyone prays this prayer.

My Jesus,

I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

I love you above all things,

and I desire to receive you into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you.

Never permit me to be separated from you.
