Dear Parishioners and friends of St Joseph’s



  • We are now allowed 220 people in the Church, which complies with the recently announced 2m2 rule (with the exception of people from the same household). 
  • Everyone attending will need to provide contact details when they arrive, so it is IMPORTANT TO ARRIVE EARLY
  • The door must be closed when Mass starts

At-risk parishioners

Anyone who is unwell should not attend Mass and anyone with co-morbidities or over the age of 70 should exercise particular caution.

Face Masks

Face masks are recommended but are no longer mandatory.  


The Archbishop has dispensed people who cannot attend Mass for any reason from the requirement of attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days.
