Supporting the Parish

While our church is closed for public worship we are unable to take the offertory collection. Many of you give by standing order, and for that we are grateful. If you wish to set up a standing order or make a one-off donation please contact Penny at our usual email of saintjosephs@tiscali.co.uk and she will send you the bank details. You can also give online via the

Diocesan Just Giving Page.

Remember to indicate that you want your gift to go to "Dorking St Joseph's"

Also, the Easter Offering is one of only two times in the year (along with Christmas) that your gift goes to Fr. Tony directly and it is one of the principal ways he gets 'paid'. If you wish to give to that collection please mark your gift "Dorking Easter offering".

You can also give to any of these by simply puting an appropriately marked envelope through the parish letterbox when out for your daily exercise!

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 have also up resources on our COVID-19 page 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 usual parish number of 01306 882433 or on tony.milner@abdiocese.org.uk
God Bless
Fr. Tony
