Welcome back to Mass at St. Josephs

Mass Times: Initially from 04.07.2020.

ONLY ONE MASS - Saturday vigil Mass 6.00 p.m.

Measures are in place to facilitate social distancing inside the Church.

You will not need “to book” to come to Mass, however inevitably social distancing measures will limit numbers.


  • You may wish to wear a face mask, this is highly recommended.
  • All toilets will be closed.
  • There will be only one entrance to the Church, please use the main door by the crucifix, it will be clearly marked Entrance Only. Please do not enter by any other door.
  • You will be required to hand sanitise when you enter the Church

Seating during Mass

As in a restaurant, when you come to Mass, you will have to wait to be seated by one of the stewards in order to ensure social distancing and that all people are seated in an ordered fashion. You will not be able to sit wherever you please.

It is important therefore that you come to Mass in very good time in order that you can be seated and that Mass can start promptly. Latecomers will have to wait until an appropriate moment during the Mass to be seated in order to minimise disruption.

In all these matters, we ask for your respectful cooperation with the stewards.

Exiting the Church

After Mass, you will only be able to exit by the door to the left of the narthex, it will clearly marked Exit Only

Please hand sanitise as you leave the Church.

All the measures that we are putting in place will be continually assessed and reviewed.

Please visit our website or our Facebook page for up to date information or email our Parish Administrator on

PLEASE BE AWARE - These circumstances are unprecedented, and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we work hard to ensure the safety of all people who will gather again in the presence of Jesus.

THANK YOU – Fr. Leslie would like to thank all those who have volunteered to be stewards. However, we are still urgently looking for volunteers to enable us to have a Sunday morning Mass. If you are considering volunteering, you should be 18 - 69, in good health and any members of your household should also be consulted.


Online Rosary Group

The St. Joseph The Worker Online Rosary Group is now a fixture at 4.30 p.m. every Sunday afternoon. After the Rosary is said we make time for payers for special dedications and some social discussion to see how everyone is keeping. If you have not had a chance to participate and would like to, please e-mail Tyrone:
