Welcome to Our Lady & 

St Joseph Church

St Josephsy

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I encourage and advise you to read very carefully all the guidelines for Celebration of Mass and the Bishops letter which can be found on the Parish websites under Covid-19 News.

Due to ongoing administration setbacks, we are not ready and cannot open our Parishes for Public Masses on Saturday 4th/Sunday 5th July until further notice. 

We hope you understand and be patient as we have to be responsible for the wellbeing of every parishioner before resuming the celebration of Public Masses.


Fr. Anthony





The keys of the kingdom.

Christ promised to remain forever with his

Church through Peter the head of the apostles.

The Lord rescued Peter from the hatred of

Herod and always comes to the aid of his

Church against which the forces of evil will

never win.  Paul is the apostle of the Gentiles so

that the Good News is spread throughout the

whole world.  Christ is with us too as we

witness to his power in our lives.  In this way we

pray that the world may learn to believe in

Jesus Christ.


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I take this opportunity to again thank you all for your continued and constant prayers, even though we are not gathered under the roof of our Parish Churches.  I am very certain that you have been faithfully finding the time to participate as actively as possible in the livestream Masses that are available.  As we continue to observe social distancing, I will continue to celebrate these Liturgies and other prayers, with you and your families very much in my heart and mind. 

Let us now continue to faithfully pray that it will not be too long before we meet again.  May you and your families remain healthy in the peace and love of our Risen Lord and be protected from all harm and danger.

Please continue to stay home – protect the NHS – save lives.

Father Anthony


Pope Francis  Prayer

Pope Francis’ prayer to unite the world in call for Mary’s intercession for the end of the Covid-19 Pandemic.  The Pope recommends this prayer to be recited after praying the Rosary.

                                            rosary & book


Oh Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a

sign of salvation and hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,

who at the foot of the cross,

were united with Jesus’ suffering,

and persevered in your faith.

‘Protectress of the Roman people,’

you know our needs,

and we know that you will provide,

so that, as at Cana in Galilee,

joy and celebration may return

after this time of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love,

to confirm ourselves to the will of the Father

and to do what Jesus tells us.

For he took upon himself our suffering,

and burdened himself with our sorrows to bring us,

through the cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.


We fly to your protection,

O Holy Mother of God;

Do not despise our petitions in our necessities.

but deliver us always from every danger;

O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.
