As a Parish, sharing the love of God, we seek to live out our faith as a community of worship, of shared faith and of service, where each person shares with others the gifts and talents received from God.
We recognise the wealth of multi-cultural background within the parish and shall seek to involve all parishioners to the greater benefit of the whole parish.
Sharing and utilising our gifts and talents, freely given us by God, we will endeavour to support family and parish life, reaching out to our neighbours within and beyond our community.
Many thanks to all those parishioners who have made donations via bank transfer, we appreciate that not everybody is in a position to do so.
Weekly donations may still be made, if you wish, via an envelope put through the office letter box. If you wish to set up a standing order, please contact the office for a form.
Please email if you require a Standing Order Form.

On 8th December 2020, Pope Francis announced that there would be a Year of St Joseph from 8th December 2020 to 8th December 2021. This was to celebrate the 150th anniversary of St Joseph being declared the Patron of the Universal Church. To join in these celebrations the Diocese has produced a Novena to St Joseph leading to his feast day on 19th March. The Novena takes as its focus the different groups or causes that claim St Joseph as their Patron Saint, as well as the themes of Pope Francis' letter launching the year. The Novena can be downloaded from the Diocesan website or you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org with 'St Joseph Novena' in the subject line to receive daily emails with prayers for that day between 10th & 18th March.
