Welcome to St Joseph's, part of the Leamington Catholic Community
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the website of St Josephs Catholic Church in Whitnash. We are a community of the Christian faithful, a small part of the body of Christ. We work in collaboration with St Peters Church, Leamington Spa and Our Lady's Church in Lillington. Together we make up Catholic Leamington. In these times of mission and evangelisation we work together as priests, deacon, religious and lay faithful to spread the message of the good news of Jesus Christ to all those we serve and beyond. I hope you find this website helpful and informative. You can find all the weekly information for St Josephs as well as the Mass times and other services in our sister parishes.
May God bless you, Fr Andrew Franklin.

St Joseph's was originally part of the mother parish of St Peter's in Leamington. It became a separate parish in 1963 when a small church was opened and a parish priest was appointed. In 1965 a new school was opened which still continues to develop at the present time. During 1971 a new church was built. One of the features of the church is the stone sculpture "The Flight into Egypt" by Walter Ritchie. He was a Midlands Man who lived in Coventry for most of his life
