Welcome to St. Joseph's Parish, Helensburgh!
Recently, Pope Francis described 'parish' as "an environment for hearing God's Word, for growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach. worship and celebration. In all its activities, the parish encourages its members to be evangelisers."
(Evangelii Gaudium §28)
We try in St. Joseph's to create that environment.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website.
Recently, we marked our 150th anniversary as a parish in Helensburgh. As far back as 1865, there was a Catholic worshipping community in our town. From very humble beginnings, the parish has steadily grown and we are indeed fortunate to have a Church which is a beautiful, dignified setting for the celebration of Eucharist, for prayer and for gathering this Christian community.
