SVP Awareness Month

September is SVP awareness month and the theme this year is “Who Cares?” Over the coming weeks, we will cover different aspects of the Society’s work in our parish.

LONELINESS can be twice as unhealthy as obesity. There are about one million lonely people aged over 65 in the UK. The SVP visits socially isolated people living in their own homes, care homes or in hospital.

Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance.”
St Vincent de Paul

Parish News & Updates

a message from Fr Michael...

As the car park is now fully functioning can you please observe the original entrance (via Austenwood Common) and exit (via Priory Road) signs. We would like to remind all parishioners NOT TO USE THE PRIORY SIDE OF THE CHURCH as a car park. This area must be kept clear for access in and out of the Priory and Parish Office. It must also be kept clear to allow access for emergency vehicles.

As can be expected in a Parish as large and diverse as ours, there is always something going on and, much as we would like to let every parishioner know all that is happening, it has often been impossible for us to do so. However now, with our very good web site and newsletter at our disposal we will do our very best to keep parishioners well informed on all that is happening in our Parish.

Here are some recent updates:

Parish Update No 12  (6 March)

Parish Update No 11  (14 February)

Parish Update No 10  (7 February)

Parish Update No 9  (6 December)

Parish Update No 8  (18 October)

Parish Update No 7  (30 August)

Parish Update No 6  (16 August)

Parish Update No 5  (2 August)

Parish Update No 4  (28 June)

Parish Update No 3  (14 June)

Parish Update No 2  (7 June)

Parish Update No 1  (10 May)

All the best, Fr Michael

Holy Door Pilgrimage
During this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis invites us all to make a pilgrimage through a Holy Door.
Here in St Joseph's, our 
mini-pilgrimage walk through the Holy Door and round the church takes just 20-30 minutes.
There is 
prayerful guide which will help you encounter anew the mercy of God.


Blessed Mother Elizabeth Hesselblad, foundress of the Bridgettine Sisters, was canonised in Rome by Pope Francis on Sunday, 5 June.
