Welcome to St Joseph's & Holy Family Catholic Churches


During the coronavirus pandemic and following the instruction of the Prime Minister, St. Joseph’s and Holy Family are closed for personal prayer until further notice. Please follow with great care public health guidelines to maintain hygiene and social distancing.

During the public health crisis and following official advice, Sunday and weekday masses will not be publicly celebrated until further notice.

However, celebration of Sunday Mass at St. Joseph’s from Palm Sunday onwards will be 9.30am.

Saturdays and weekdays Mass will take place at 9.30am (without a public congregation) and can be seen on YouTube, Facebook or here on the parish website. Once again we shall continue to monitor the situation both nationally and locally very carefully and pass on any information we receive as soon as possible.


If you are following Mass on any of the social media live streaming, Father Woolley suggests that during the silence after Communion, everyone prays this prayer.

My Jesus,

I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

I love you above all things,

and I desire to receive you into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you.

Never permit me to be separated from you.


International Mass-18
