Parish Links and Sacramental Programme

Parish Links


Fr. Stamp is our  parish priest. There are three schools in our parish. We are fortunate to work closely with St Peter's RC Primary School, Newchurch and St. James the less.  Both

St. Joseph's and St. Peter's schools work together on the Sacramental Programme, charity events and retreats for our children. We attend St Peter's church for Sacramental Programme masses on Sundays. Fr Stamp visits our school weekly and Mass is held in our school hall every three weeks.  The parish are invited to attend the mass and we offer refreshments afterwards to our parishioners and all who attend. Our Parish has a new name "The Holy Apostles". 



 Sunday Mass takes place at St Peter's RC Church in Newchurch every Sunday at 9.00am. Please contact Fr. Stamp if you would like further information. 01706 213410.​



Our Parish Prayer Card

Congratulations to two of our pupils who have recently been Baptised.

Sacramental Programme


Baptised Roman Catholic children in Year 3 and above can take part in the Sacramental Programme. We join with St Peter's RC Primary School for these special occasions. If you would like your child to be a part of this wonderful faith journey then please contact school. The programme starts every year during the autumn term so please let school know as soon as possible if you would like your child to take part.


If your child has not been baptised and you would like more information on this, please don't hesitate to contact school or please attend the Masses at school or at St. Peter's and Father Stamp will be more than happy to discuss this with you. 

Please pray for all of the children who will be involved in the Sacramental Programme this year. Please keep them in your prayers as they grow in their relationship with God.
