Groups - Liturgy

Altar Servers

Altar servers prepare to make our Sunday celebrations more prayerful and dignified. New members - young and not so young - are welcome.


Readers prepare the Holy Scripture which is presented to the People of God each Sunday. New readers are welcome.

Eucharistic Ministers

Eucharistic Ministers assist at Mass and also take the Blessed Sacrament to the sick at home. New ministers are welcome.

Music Group (9.15am Sunday Mass)

Currently composed of cantor, violin, cello, guitar and flute, the Parish Music Group leads the music at 9.15 Mass each Sunday morning. Music played ranges from traditional hymns to the songs and chants of Taize and Iona and includes pieces by well known Catholic composers, some written especially for St Joseph’s parish. The group combines with the parish choir for major celebrations.

If you are interested in joining us or would like further information, contact Frances (see the Contact page). If you are brave just come and introduce yourself to one of us after the 9.15 Mass - we’d actually be very pleased to meet you!

The Choir (11am Sunday Mass)

The choir leads the congregation in singing at 11am mass on Sundays. We are a small but enthusiastic group led by John, our choirmaster, and accompanied by Sheila, our organist. The choir sings a variety of old and new hymns together with musical settings of the mass.

The choir is always looking for new members. If you enjoy singing, why not come up to the choir loft and join us. You do not have to be able to read music (although if you can this is very useful). All we ask is that you can sing tunefully. We particularly need more male singers.

We look forward to meeting you!

Liturgy Planning

Liturgy planning group meets to consider the liturgical season and how best to bring our worship to life and involve all, especially our young people.

Altar Work

Altar work for the sacristy and the floral decoration of the sanctuary as well as cleaning the whole church are essential to the well being of our liturgy together.
