A New Polish Toddler Group at St Joseph’s started last Thursday, 10.30 – 11.30am for babies and toddlers aged 0-5 years, and meets on 1st and 3rd Thursdays.
The focus, songs and conversation are in Polish, but everyone is welcome!
Get involved – HELP SAVE LIFE!!
Starts this Wednesday (25th September) and continues until Sunday 3rd November. For 40 days we will pray, fast and hold a peaceful, prayerful, pro-life vigil outside the BPAS abortion facility in Twickenham – praying for the babies and their mothers and also for staff of the clinic. Get involved – HELP SAVE LIFE!! Sign up to participate in our local vigil by clicking here: Vigil Schedule.
This will be the largest and longest internationally coordinated pro-life mobilization in history. 40 Days for Life vigils have saved 7,536 unborn babies and their mothers from abortion, 83 abortion workers had a conversion of heart, and 39 abortion facilities closed down. During this year’s Lenten campaign in London 36 unborn babies were saved from abortion, and the BPAS abortion centre in Bedford Square stopped performing abortions this year in June.

We at St Joseph’s were saddened to learn of the death of Daniel Brudney last week. Having been involved in Youth 2000 for 7 years, he was a well-loved member of the team, who instilled in many a love for the Lord and His people. May he rest in peace!
The following is taken from an email from Fiona Mansford of Youth 2000:
Dear Youth 2000 Friends,
It is with sad hearts that we share the news of Daniel Brudney’s death on Friday night. He died tragically in a car accident, on his way home from work. Daniel had been involved in Youth 2000 for many years, and became a member of the Leadership Team in 2008.
Daniel was a living witness and example of faith and love in action… particularly at the Walsingham Prayer Festivals, where Doctor Daniel, a Consultant Microbiologist, would be seen often with his sleeves rolled up, a smile on his face, and a mop and bucket in hand, ready to serve wherever needed.
Please join us in thanking God for the great gift of Daniel. He was, and remains to be a gift to Youth 2000, and a faithful and fun-loving friend to many. We will always remember the joy, commitment, and care that God brought us and hundreds of others, through him. He was a passionate and generous man, dedicated to the work of Youth 2000 and to the mission of the Church. At this time your prayers are asked in particular for his parents and extended family.
‘We want you to be quite certain about those who have fallen asleep, to make sure that you do not grieve for them, as others do who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again, and that in the same way God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus’. 1 Thes 4:13-14
Eternal rest grant unto him Oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Our Lady of Walsingham – pray for us.

With over a thousand people at Sunday Masses, and more than seventy parish groups, St Joseph’s is a vibrant and varied parish, serving Catholics (and those interested in exploring the Catholic Faith) of every age, interest and background. Our parish life, teaching and mission are faithful to the Second Vatican Council, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the inspiration and initiatives of the Holy Father.
If you’re new to the parish, or just interested in Catholicism, your best first step is to come to Sunday Mass and experience the varied “styles” at 9.30am, 11.30am and 5.30pm – you’ll be handed our weekly Sunday Bulletin with reflections and news. Then come and meets others over coffee (between the 9.30am & 11.30am Masses), and introduce yourself to one of the Priests or Deacon of the Parish.
