“For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission”. Synodality indicates walking together and listening to one another but above all to the Holy Spirit. To deepen this essential characteristic of the Church, the upcoming synod is unlike any previous one.  It starts with, and involves all the faithful at local Churches across the world, promising to listen to all, especially to laypeople. That is why this Synod is a 2-year process, starting from October 10, 2021, to October 2023. 


A great new adventure is available on our website. The 'St Joseph Storyboard' tells the adventures of Fr Robbie, Marley and Lenny (parish dogs). Our parish and school will be sent the latest edition each week. You can gain access as a visitor via our 'Storyboard' page to enjoy the journey. We hope that you enjoy the fun, whatever age you are...

Light a Candle

Christians light candles as a symbol of our prayers being entrusted to God. They are reminders to us that Jesus Christ is the "light of the world", and the warmth they spread symbolises God's loving comfort. Many people in our parish like to light candles in our church. Father Robbie is very happy to light a candle before the statue of Our Lady of Lourdes for anyone who would like one as a symbol of their prayer for themselves or a loved-one. To request a candle be lit, please fill in the form below and and any message you wish him to pray that day click submit; you'll then be asked to complete a 'antispam' confirmation that you're not a spammer robot. Fr Robbie will get back to you with confirmation.
