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
MESSAGE FROM FR KIERON
Unfortunately the current risk has meant that we have had to pause attendance at Mass
we stream Mass daily at 10am in the week and at 11:30am on Sundays

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 are half way through our third Alpha online AND ARE NOW TAKING NAMES FOR OUR NEXT ONE.
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.
Another Lockdown! Why not join other parishioners on Zoom as we explore and share together a series on the Holy Spirit entitled The Gift.
An inspiring and practical series aimed at people of all ages to help them encounter the Holy Spirit and empower them to share their faith.
The teachings are relaxed, personal and informative, rooted in the Bible, the Catechism, Evangelii Gaudium and reflections on the Holy Spirit from Pope Francis. Each session includes video input from a Catholic dvd series with testimonies from laity and clergy
Over the next few months we will be providing a number of opportunities to hear about and discuss how we might take our parish forward in line with Pope Francis’ call.
The first opportunity is currently on Thursday mornings.
Join us on zoom to hear more and discuss
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.
