Care of St Joseph’s parishioners who are sick,housebound or in hospital: our pastoral care of these important parishioners is essential. Please let the parish office know if a family member or friend is sick or unable to come to Mass and would like to receive Holy Communion. Hospitals no longer automatically inform the hospital chaplaincy of your admission or your faith. In order to ensure that you, if you wish, still receive the sacraments, receive a visit from the chaplain, or the on-call priest in an emergency, it is important firstly to let your Parish Priest know, then to contact the hospital chaplaincy team on 01332 789500
