LATEST NEWS (27th November)

The national lockdown in England will end on Wednesday 2nd December, and this means that Places of Worship will be able to open up for services with a congregation from then onwards with the same restrictions as before (see below).

Fr Peter will continue to offer Mass every day, most of which will be live-streamed: click here for details.


We are restricted to using just 16 benches in our church, with individuals & family groups having to practice safe distancing from all others at all times. You must now by law wear a face covering whenever you are in a place of worship, unless you are exempted. Any family groups who come to our church cannot number more than six people, nor can groups of more than six people mingle before or after Mass. If you have the NHS Covid-19 App on your mobile phone you can scan our QR Code as you enter the church.

Masses on Sunday at 9.30am & 11.00am (starting on the 6th December) are open to the public, but you must book beforehand either by emailing stjosephspudsey@dioceseofleeds.org.uk or by phoning 0113 257 0803 (preferably on Mondays & Fridays 9am to 1pm, leaving a message if necessary). Everyone who attends must leave their name and telephone number or email address to comply with the NHS Test & Trace scheme.

Mass this week on Thursday (3rd December) at 9.30am is also open to the public, though you do not need to book in order to attend. Please write your name and phone number on a piece of paper and bring it with you to hand to the steward when you enter the church porch in order to comply with the NHS Test & Trace scheme.

Please – we need volunteers to help us to keep our church open for Mass – please see here for information.

Baptisms can be arranged directly with Fr Peter: stjosephspudsey@dioceseofleeds.org.uk

At the moment, home & nursing home visits are still not permitted except in danger of death and at the discretion of the parish priest.
