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.
Fr Andrew's Induction.
The induction of Fr. Andy as Parish Priest of St. Joseph’s, Whitnash took place during the 7.00pm Mass on Friday 3rd November. The Mass was a wonderful celebration of Fr. Andy’s “Yes” to the care and responsibility of the people and the buildings which make up the parish of St. Joseph. It was also the celebration of our welcoming him as our new pas-tor and priest, which we do with joy and gratitude. It was wonderful to see so many priests and deacons together on the sanctuary, con-celebrating this special Mass and to welcome the many parishioners, visitors from Fr. Andy’s previous parish and of course, his parents.
Fr. Andy extends his great thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this important event go well - those who worked to make the church beautiful, provided the music, the altar servers, those who worked quietly in the back-ground and those who produced the Order of Service. All this contributed to the dignity and significance of the ceremony. Moving on to the reception afterwards, a similar ‘thank you’ to those who organised the buffet in the hall (and cleared up afterwards!) The food was tasty and it all looked wonderful. It was very much a St. Joseph’s parish event - Thank you all very much.
