Join us and our partners, the Mill Hill Missionaries, for the annual Novena to St Joseph 11 – 19 March 2023.

St Joseph’s Missionary Society (the Mill Hill Missionaries) is Britain’s own missionary society, founded by Cardinal Herbert Vaughan in 1866. Each year the Mill Hill community prepares for the feast day of St Joseph – their patron – with a special Novena of Masses and prayers.

Prayer is the foundation of all mission work, both in this country and abroad. The Novena is a wonderful way for the faithful to pray for each other, and build links of prayer across the world for missionaries and the people they serve.

Visit the Mill Hill Missionaries website for all resources and details of the Novena>>

Send your petitions to the Mill Hill Missionaries

You are invited to send in your petitions to the Mill Hill Missionaries. They will then be placed at St Joseph’s altar during the Novena, to be remembered in the Masses and prayers. If you would like to have your deceased relatives and friends remembered, or if you have any special intentions, please list them on the petition slip and return them before the start of the Novena.

Thank you so much for supporting our missionary work with your prayers, your letters of encouragement and your contributions.

You can find the petitions slip here or email for more information
