St Joseph's & St John the Baptist Catholic Churches

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.

Community

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.

Alpha

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
our community.

We have 1 or 2 Masses each weekday, and 4 Sunday Masses, with one Mass available streamed every day

new Alpha starts April 22nd

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

An evening with friends

Now on Sundays rather than Wednesday we have our hour of social time, as the current restrictions have removed so much of our opportunity to chat and meet.   An hour on Zoom hosted by David Miller. David will ensure that there is an opportunity to talk to each other, and do some fun things together.  Come and meet your friends and make new ones.

Lectio Divina

Fridays at 8pm. A time for praver and for preparation for Sunday Mass every week with Fr Aidan, a monk from Worth who has just arrived in the parish

Be a part of our community and stay in touch

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.

Stations of Light

6:30 pm every Friday

Following on from the Stations of the Cross on Fridays in Lent, we are now starting to contemplate the Resurrection, through Stations of Light

Resources

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.

Young Adults

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.
