Social Life

We have an active ‘social life group’ at St Joseph’s, which strives to organise a wide variety of social events designed to appeal to a range of parishioners. Events being planned for 2024 include bingo sessions, a programme of outings, brunch, rugby outings, a quiz night and film nights. Check back here soon for more details.

Corpus Christi carpet of flowers

To celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi, we are planning a parish trip on Wednesday 29th May to see the magnificent festival of flowers at Arundel Cathedral, and the traditional Corpus Christi carpet of flowers in the central aisle. The coach will depart from the church car park at 11.00am and leave Arundel at 5.30pm. The cost will depend on the number of bookings, but is expected to be in the region of £12. For more details and to join the visit please contact Jenny and John Mortimer (01372 729048 or 07508 037083) or email before Monday 29th April.
