Why I am Catholic is the title of a series of articles which we hope that St Joseph’s Parishioners will write for our Sunday Bulletin during the remainder of this Year of Faith (and beyond), to share their faith journey and encourage us all in our own way . Each submission should be 400-500 words and will be published anonymously (although Fr Peter needs to know the authors). Send to him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
St Joseph’s is again hosting the Ecumenical Winter Night Shelter for the Homeless on Monday nights from January 20th to February 24th 2014.
If you could help please contact Rosemary Matters on 020 8949 3556 or by email: email@example.com. Rosemary will soon be contacting our regular volunteers. Thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way in previous years.

St Joseph’s UCM Coffee Morning, after the 10am Mass, in our Pastoral Centre, supports the Macmillan Cancer Charity which provides hope and help to many cancer patients and their families, and is very appreciative of fund-raising that is done on their behalf.
Please do some baking for the Cake Sale, and donate items for the Raffle.
27th September – UPDATE
Thank you to EVERYONE who made it such a successful event! Today’s coffee morning raised £1,104.53 towards the wonderful work of Macmillan Cancer Support!
Here are some pictures from today’s fabulous Coffee Morning.
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!
This new and exciting three-part introduction to the Catholic Faith has clear, straightforward Answers to important, major Questions – Why God? Why Christ? Why the Church? next Sunday 29th September (7-8pm), Friday 4th October (8-9pm), and Sunday 6th October (7-8pm) respectively. This will answer any of your own questions on Christian basics, and enable you to engage with those of others faiths – and none – especially in this Year of Faith and for the New Evangelisation. Also, if you’re thinking about becoming a Catholic or returning to the Church – start here! Similarly if you’re an adult preparing for Confirmation or, like all of us, wanting to deepen your understanding of the Faith – start here!

St Joseph’s is located on the junction of Kingston Road and Montem Road, easily accessible by car and public transport. Click here to go to an interactive map showing where we are, where you can also plan your route.
Travelling by Public Transport
The 131 (Kingston to Morden) and the N87 (Kingston to Aldwych, a night bus) both stop right outside the church, and the X26 (Heathrow to Croydon) stops at the roundabout at the junction with Kingston Road, the High Street and Burlington Road.
New Malden is in Zone 4, on the main South-West line out of Waterloo. There are regular trains in both directions, and St Joseph’s is less than 10 minutes walk from the station.
Directions from the Station: Turn left out of New Malden station towards the High Street, then turn right down Cambridge Road, the second turning, beside the Methodist Church. Then take the third left, Montem Road, and St Joseph’s is at the far end of that, on the left.

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.
