MISSION PRAYER - I thank you almighty and ever loving Father for you have created me in such a way that I am able to experience and become a source of your merciful presence to my neighbour.Give me a renewed desire and the courage to be still in your presence. Allow your Holy Spirit to renew my inner-life. As I grow ever more conscious of my vocation to be a Disciple of your Son Jesus, with Mary as my companion on this journey; may your Light shine more brightly within me, your Love be shared more widely through me and my Gospel Witness be profound. Amen   

POPE FRANCIS PRAYER INTENTION FOR OCTOBER - Evangelisation: The Laity’s Mission in the Church: That by the virtue of baptism, the lay faithful, especially women, may participate more in the areas of responsibility in the Church.

PARISH PILGRIMAGE 2021 led by Father Vincent and Godfrey Doyle. Following the successful pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela and last year to Malta a further one is being planned for next year. This will be to Fatima and other religious and historic sites in northern Portugal, finishing in Lisbon. It is being planned for  13 - 20 October 2021. Details available soon.

If a family member is going into the General Hospital please let your local priest know (in case they require ‘Anointing’ before being admitted); also inform the Hospital Chaplaincy requesting a visit by the Team and, if appropriate, Holy Communion (or to arrange to attend the afternoon Mass in the Hospital)
The Mission
Thank you to all who planned, ran and got involved with the Mission held from 30 May - 9 June 2019.  A special thanks to Father Des, Tina Quinn, the ‘Welcomers’, ‘Hospitality Teams’ and musicians/singers.  Many of us have benefited from the 9 days of prayer, talks, reflections, conversations and Masses.  Now what next?  

- Consider a deeper involvement in Parish Life?  Let us know! 
- Baptism Team?
- Pre-Marriage Team?
- Winter shelter scheme?
- Reader, Eucharistic Minister?
- Welcomer, Hospitality…?
Maybe ‘Called and Gifted’ (July) or
- ‘Open Door Retreats’ (September) or
- ‘Week of Accompanied Prayer’ (November)

St. Joseph's and St. Edmund's ...

is a warm, welcoming and diverse Catholic community at the heart of Southampton. People from across the globe come regularly to worship here at one of the several Sunday or weekday Masses. Catholics and people of any Christian community or faith (or none) are able to use St Edmund's Church as a place of quiet and reflection throughout the day.

This website has been prepared for you, the parishioner, for our visitors and for those in the local community who are interested in the parish. This website provides a summary of the many activities, groups and organisations that function in this vibrant parish. We welcome contributions and anyone can submit an article.

To all new arrivals, we extend a very warm welcome. We would be grateful if you would complete a census form and return it to the parish office so that our records may be kept up to date. Be assured, that in doing so you are not committing yourselves to anything.
