During Lent there are lots of ways we can prepare ourselves for Easter.  Our Lenten Programme for 2018 lists various events, services and devotions which we encourage you to participate in.  Everyone is most welcome.

Our Family Calendar for Lent, devised with children and teenagers in mind, is filled with simple and practical things to do each day which draw us closer to Jesus and help us to be more like him.



National Eucharistic Pilgrimage
and Congress in Liverpool
7th-9th September 2018

The pilgrimage will bring people together from across the dioceses of England and Wales for a time of focus and renewal of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

A small group will be going from our parish. Please speak to Fr Michael if you are interested in going to some or all of the weekend.




World Meeting of Families
21-26 August 2018 in Dublin
guided by the theme
“The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World”

Pope Francis will visit Ireland for WMOF2018, taking part in the ‘Festival of Families’ as well as presiding at Holy Mass.  This event is open to anyone.  Fr Michael hopes to go and would love to hear from anyone interested.


Diocesan Year of Prayer and Vocation

Bishop Peter has called us all to share a Year of Prayer and Vocation. CLICK HERE to link to his video message about this.

Throughout this year we are invited to renew our commitment to personal prayer. To help us, Prayer Cards are available from the Church porch.

In March we pray together for the grace of repentence and the joy of forgiveness.

We are asked to receive the grace of the Sacrament of Reconciliation this Lent


Life - Holy Cross Sisters

The Sisters of the Holy cross in this parish belong to a world wide congregation spanning four continents. This small booklet, entitled "Life", comes out regularly and gives you a flavour of the work done by the Sisters in our other provinces. I hope you have time to read it.

Fairtrade Fortnight may have finished but it is vital that we continue to support the farmers who grow our food in developing countries. There’s never been a more important time to stand with producers through Fairtrade and to protect the progress achieved alongside them. Support the drive for much-needed change because these farmers deserve fair terms of trade. Close the door on exploitation – buy Fairtrade and encourage others to do the same. St Joseph’s Parish is proud to support Fairtrade.
