Thought of the Week

“Rain righteousness, you heavens, let the skies above pour down; let the earth open to receive it, that it may bear the fruit of salvation.” (Isaiah 45:8)




Fr Nigel Woollen welcomes you to the parish of St Joseph!

I am very happy to be with you in Stevenage at last.  I am already appreciating my new mission, and I have found everyone I’ve met so far very friendly and welcoming!  I am originally from Barnet, but lived abroad for nearly 30 years until last summer, firstly in France and Italy, then the last 15 years in Ireland, working at Knock Shrine in County Mayo – so you’ll understand if I have a slight Irish accent.  It’ll take me a while to get to know everyone, but I’m sure you’ll be patient if I don’t remember your names right away.

With my prayers for you all.

Best wishes,  Fr Nigel Woollen
