The Catholic Parish of East Brighton
Welcome to St Joseph’s and St John the Baptist! We are a vibrant and welcoming Catholic
community in Brighton, with a vision to form disciples of Jesus Christ, to love others, and to serve
our city. In normal times we have 4 Masses each Sunday, plus one on Saturday evening, and 2 most weekdays. We are also very much present online, with with live Mass every day, daily news, on line groups, and resources for use at home.
We are a community serving each other and the local area – both with practical support and
befriending. If you feel isolated at home, or need practical shopping help or telephone advice, or if you can help
us provide this support, our Lightbulb project can help you for free.
The current situation offers a great opportunity to use time well, and think about our faith and the
big questions of life. Join our online Alpha, a weekly series, with each week focussed on one of the
big questions – with opportunities for input, discussion, and getting to know like minded people in
I MISS YOU CHURCH, I LOVE GOING INSIDE YOU WITH GRANDMA
We can attend Mass again from Wednesday
We entered the lockdown without a good database of parishioners. We would really want to keep everyone informed about all that is going on – please help us by giving us your contact details. Also please fill in our parish Census 2020 form.
At this strange time why not take the opportunity to build your faith, explore your faith, or learn more about faith, life, and God from home.
We have run two very successful Alphas online, after many in person series, with a mixture of parishioners and people new to our church. We have just started our new Alpha – there is still time to join.
See our Alpha page, or get in touch and we will answer questions and give you full details
There are so many good things to read, watch, or listen to. We have assembled a range of excellent resources that you may find useful, perhaps even more so at this time. We are constantly adding to this, so please keep coming back to this.
We offer loads of opportunities for students and young adults to journey deeper – to explore, discover, make friends, reflect, celebrate, get involved in the life of the church, and make a difference in the local community together.
