Welcome from Fr Peter Glas
Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Church located in Tilehurst, Reading. Our Parish is very blessed to have generous parishioners and volunteers who have wholeheartedly offered their gifts to the Lord and to the parish In the name of the Christian community of St Joseph's Church. I would like to express my sincerest and prayerful gratitude to all the members of this parish, especially the children and youth. Young people's participation is a priority and the Church has a strategic role in developing and supporting our children and youth. We are proud to be a discipleship parish where every member can grow as a disciple of Christ through our many ministries and faith formation opportunities. We invite you to come worship with us and make St Joseph's Church, your spiritual home. Our primary school is St Paul's: http://www.stpauls.w-berks.sch.uk/
