Watch Now

Welcome to our Parish

Here at St. Joseph’s we grow as “stewards” of God’s gifts to us. We try to recognize the many ways in which God has blessed us and respond by giving thanks not only with our words but by the way we celebrate our faith and live our lives. This enables us to deepen our understanding of what the Gospel Message means in our lives today.

Fr Chris Whelan

Hello! I’m Fr Chris, the Parish Priest of St Joseph’s. Peace be with you. 

During this time of suffering and stress, I hope you will find comfort in the fact that God is particularly close to those who call on Him in their need. So, do not be afraid for you are never alone.
Let me know if I can help you, please help others if you can and pray that the Lord will help deepen your relationship with Him as He continues to watch over you and love you more than you could ever imagine. 

Lent is HERE

LENT is a  wonderful season lasting 40 days when we prepare ourselves for the celebration of Easter and the Passover of the Lord from death to life. It is a time of healing when we ask God to renew within us his love. We seek by God’s grace to cast off the old ways and to take on the new, that is, to die with Christ - and to rise again with Him to new life. LENT is not simply about ‘giving things up’ or ‘doing something extra.’ .............

Latest News

Year B

Now that we’re in Year B in our Church Calendar, it’s noticeable that we’re listening to a different Evangelist than last year:
Mark is an Evangelist who doesn’t mess about. He goes headlong into things. His Gospel message is breathtaking, and it is wonderful. 

Mark goes straight for it. He’s a no-nonsense, no frills, just the essentials, Evangelist, and his logic is understandable - this is the Good News, so why beat around the bush.
Why not join our Gospel of Mark weekly teams meeting? (see below)
