Welcome to St Joseph's
Come Holy Spirit!
Zooming Together for Mass
While it is likely we won't be able to come together physically for Mass in the church for some time, we are now coming together digitally using the cloud meeting app Zoom.
If you want to take part at 10am on Sundays, please send me an email at email@example.com and I will send you joining instructions on Saturday afternoon. Zoom works on computer, tablet or phone. You don't need to sign in to zoom to participate, but you will need to download the app, which you will be able to do by clicking on the link in the invitation.
If you prefer the 'DIY' liturgy we will still be preparing that.

Meet the Seminarians
This Wednesday, 3rd June, 8pm
Many of you know Eddie, who spent a year with us before starting seminary. This Wednesday, Eddie is holding a Zoom conversation with Gary Carter, another A&B seminarian. Gary didn't grow up Christian, but became a Baptist at 16, a Catholic at 26 and a seminarian at 29. The two will talk about their faith journeys, and then have an 'ask us anything' session.
Keeping in touch
While we cannot gather physically as a parish at present, it is important to keep in touch with what is going on. We continue to the publish the Parish Newsletter here on the website, and you can have it sent to you by email if you contact us. The A & B News is also available online from the publishers website, along with other newspapers from other diocese, As well as the Web Page we also have a facebook page on which we put things from time to time.
COVID –19 Coronavirus
During the COVID-19 crisis, although churches are no longer open for public worship, priests are still celebrating Mass privately on a daily basis. I am doing that, honouring those intentions already requested, and praying for the parish. If you wish to have a mass celebrated for your intention please contact me on the email address below
I am also regularly updating our COVID-19 section to help us remain united as a community spiritually, even though we cannot gather physically. I will continue to update these.
I am still available to hear confessions by appointment, and also to bring the sacraments to those who are gravely ill.
Let us keep each other in prayer at this time, and also keep in touch. I can be contacted on the parish number 01306 882433 or on
