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!
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.

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.
