About Us

The Catholic parish of St Joseph, Leicester (Diocese of Nottingham), began in 1938 when people gathered for the celebration of mass on Christmas eve in a converted stable. There have been three churches on this site. The temporary second church was built in the 1950s with the intention of its becoming a parish hall when the third and present church was built in 1968. There are over 700 homes in the parish which is served by two churches - St Josephs and Our Lady of the Rosary.St. Josephs Church seats about 400 people and is situated at a busy ring-road junction on the eastern outskirts of the city.Our Lady of the Rosary Church is on the local Netherhall Estate and seats about 150.
