Loving as Christ Loves, Serving as Christ Serves
Masses at Church
Masses for congregations (limited to 60) will resume at St Joseph after lockdown.
Please join your fellow parishioners for the lovely Live Masses online at 9am on Sundays.
Music from our wonderful singers and musicians accompany the Live Masses.
9am is difficult? Don't worry, the Live Mass is recorded so you participate later.

"The hot air balloon, if it would soar to great heights, must cast off its weights just as the soul must put off its little weights." - Saint Carlo beatified 10th Oct 2020
During lockdown please contact the Parish Office to arrange to cast off your weights, so that you too may soar to great heights.
“Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the One who sent me" - Matthew 10:40
In these difficult times we need extra volunteers to help with ushering and cleaning. It means arriving early for Mass to help with ushering or staying a little longer after Mass to help clean.
If you are able to help then please ask after Mass or contact the Parish Office.
It is with gratitude that we accept your donations that enable our Parish and other worthy charities to thrive and continue Christ's Mission.
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 to 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.
Congratulations to our Parish Priest, Fr. Chris Whelan on his appointment by Bishop Philip, as:
Co-ordinating Pastor of North West Hampshire Pastoral Area
Dean of the Deanery embracing the North East Hampshire and North West Hampshire Pastoral Areas.
We wish Fr. Chris well as he takes up this new role and offer him our love, prayers and support.
Dear Sisters and Brothers, I thank God who in His loving providence, granted me the singular privilege to live in and serve the Christian community of St. Joseph while pursuing my Master’s course.
As I leave St. Joseph for a new pastoral engagement on Guernsey Island, I wish to say miya (thank you). Throughout my stay with you, I experienced fantastic collaboration, loving care, generous material donation and faith-driven spiritual support from you. Words cannot adequately express my heartfelt sentiments of gratitude.
I pray that God may continue to enkindle the fire of faith, hope and love in your hearts. May your zeal for God’s house not be smothered by any challenge. I pray that God may protect you and lead you safely through the present global crisis. Please, kindly continue to pray for me.
Miya (thank you)
Sadly, Deacon Pat has recently retired from active Parish Ministry on health grounds. He has served St. Joseph's Catholic Community since his ordination in 2007 by presiding over many Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals and helped many parishioners by providing spiritual care and comfort to those in need. Not only has he assisted our priests liturgically, but his teaching has had a great impact on us all.
Although officially retired Deacon Pat will continue to be around and he assures each and everyone of us of his heartfelt prayers.
We will keep Deacon Pat and his wife Cherry in our prayers too.
