HE IS RISEN, ALLELUIA!

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.

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.

HEART & COMPASS ZERO WASTE SHOP

A new refill shop called Heart & Compass is opening in Viables Craft Centre soon. It is run by two of our very own Parishioners, Helen and Steve.

The Heart & Compass makes sustainable purchasing so much easier. 5 percent of your purchases actually comes back to St Joseph's so that we can invest in sustainable projects of our own. It soon adds up.
