Welcome to our Parish Website.

Dear People of St Joseph the Worker,

From 2nd December we are able to resume public Mass in St Joseph’s.  Each Friday there will be Mass at 10.00 am.  Each Saturday Mass is at 5.30 pm and on Sunday 11.00 am.  If you would like to attend Saturday or Sunday Mass, please inform Fr Garry:  father.garry@gmail.com      When you come to Mass simply ask the steward to tick your name for the following week and you will remain on the list.  Any changes please inform me.   The previous safe-distancing measures etc, which are listed below, will apply.

We greatly look forward to celebrating Mass together once more.

God bless

Fr Garry
