All are welcome in our lively and exciting Roman Catholic community here in Basingstoke
Public Mass Times

Adoration at 8.15am Tuesdays & Thursdays
Confessions Saturday until 5.45pm
In Reconciliation, the Confession, we receive complete forgiveness from God for our sins through the words of the priest. It is a wonderful way to receive God’s grace – the assurance of God’s presence and mercy for us, and the strength to continue on the paths of holiness.
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.
If you would like our Intercessory prayer group to pray for your particular intentions, get in touch today:
Our intecessory prayer group will recieve your details and your prayer - it will not be used for anyting other than our prayers for you and will not be shared outside of that.
This will enter our system as an email, all email data is retained for 7 years.

Jesus gave us the sacraments so that we can closely relate to God throughout life's transitions. The sacraments help us nourish, strengthen, and express our faith.
Contact the Parish Office for Baptism, First Holy Communion, Confession, Confirmation, Marriage, and Annointing of the Sick.
But do you know the seventh sacrament?
Youth Music Group
Cecilia Sound is the Parish's very own youth band and we love them. Listen to their music here or when they play at Sunday Mass.
Rehearsals are once per month. If you would like to join in for a taster session then please get in touch through the Parish Office!
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 who can pop in at other times to help clean.volunteer NOW
