Mass intentions this week

Offering a Mass is a really powerful form of prayer as we offer the sacrifice of the Mass for a particular intention. Masses can booked by seeing Fr Matthew or writing in the parish diary and giving the offering to Liz Hewitt.


Refreshments  after Mass Please join us after Mass for coffee in the parish room.

Parish Visitation  9th and 10th March 2018. This is really important for us as a parish. Please make every effort to support this weekend and the various activities planned. Sign up sheets for various activities are on the notice board.

Midweek Masses – Please support the midweek masses. Masses in the week last no longer that 25 minutes and are a good way of giving extra time to God. The number of our parishioners who attend these masses is disappointingly low at the moment. We have ensured a variety of times (AM and PM) to try to give as much opportunity as possible. If you cant make any of the times Fr Matthew is willing to consider new timings if it enables others to attend.

Other Sunday Mass provision – Please remember that if you are ever unable to come to Mass on Sunday at St Joseph’s there are other Masses in the deanery where you can fulfil your obligation. These are: 

Saturday Evening: St Francis (Bedworth)- 4pm;  Sacred Heart- 5pm; Lutterworth – 5:30pm; St Maries- 6pm; English Martyrs 6:30 pm

A Prayer for our parish –

LORD GOD, WE THANK YOU for our parish and for all its people. We praise you for the hard work of those now gone before us whose vision has given us what we have today. Bless all who come to this church that they may hear Your Word and live by it, receive Your sacraments and be strengthened by them and find in this place a glimpse of Your love, an experience of Your mercy and a foretaste of heaven. Help us travel faithfully into Your future. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
