"Four Mikes on Bikes"


Fr Michael, Michael Burton, Michael Carney and Michael Claridge have embarked on an arduous bike ride, cycling around 60 miles a day for 20 days, as they travel the old Pilgrim’s Route from Canterbury to Rome. The group set off on the Via Francigene Pilgrimage last Sunday, 5 June and will stop off at various churches, monasteries and places of interest along the way.

They will be supported by Malcolm Johnstone (driver and logistics) and Denese Hankins (physio).  Learn how this all came about by reading Fr Michael's note.

They are raising money for The London & Slough Run.  To find out what they are up to and how they are getting on check out their blog or take a look at the display in the side porch of St Joseph’s Church. Please keep them in your prayers and give them your support.



Parish News & Updates

a message from Fr Michael...

As the car park is now fully functioning can you please observe the original entrance (via Austenwood Common) and exit (via Priory Road) signs. We would like to remind all parishioners NOT TO USE THE PRIORY SIDE OF THE CHURCH as a car park. This area must be kept clear for access in and out of the Priory and Parish Office. It must also be kept clear to allow access for emergency vehicles.

As can be expected in a Parish as large and diverse as ours, there is always something going on and, much as we would like to let every parishioner know all that is happening, it has often been impossible for us to do so. However now, with our very good web site and newsletter at our disposal we will do our very best to keep parishioners well informed on all that is happening in our Parish.

Here are some recent updates:

Parish Update No 12  (6 March)

Parish Update No 11  (14 February)

Parish Update No 10  (7 February)

Parish Update No 9  (6 December)

Parish Update No 8  (18 October)

Parish Update No 7  (30 August)

Parish Update No 5  (2 August)

Parish Update No 4  (28 June)

Parish Update No 3  (14 June)

Parish Update No 2  (7 June)

All the best, Fr Michael

Holy Door Pilgrimage
During this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis invites us all to make a pilgrimage through a Holy Door.
Here in St Joseph's, our 
mini-pilgrimage walk through the Holy Door and round the church takes just 20-30 minutes.
There is 
prayerful guide which will help you encounter anew the mercy of God.


Blessed Mother Elizabeth Hesselblad, foundress of the Bridgettine Sisters, was canonised in Rome by Pope Francis on Sunday, 5 June.
