Together we can make a difference


The Saint Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) is part of an international voluntary network dedicated to tackling poverty in all its forms, by providing practical assistance to people in need.

What we do:

Our main work is visiting the elderly and housebound in their own homes or care homes.

 We take Holy Communion to them, if they so wish, enjoy conversation, and take time to listen

 A phone call is always appreciated too

 Locally, we provide material support where it is needed.

 We drive parishioners to Mass.

 We send financial aid to communities in India and Romania, as well as pay the university fees for a young woman who is studying to become a primary school teacher.

We could do more…. Would you like to help us?

Do you need help from the SVP?

united with them.
We are calling for an urgent diplomatic solution and a lasting ceasefire to
prevent further suffering and to bring peace back to the region. There is now
a growing humanitarian crisis, and Caritas Ukraine – among other
humanitarian organisations – are on the frontline of the response.
As freezing temperatures continue, the plight of Ukrainian citizens will only
worsen. Any bombing of infrastructure across the country will only result in
further suffering of the Ukrainian people.
International humanitarian law must be adhered to, with schools, hospitals and civilians protected from s

Email Address Change of Parish of St Joseph and St Clare 14th December 2021

Dear Parishioner and Friends.

Please note the following regarding email address change in the light of enhanced cyber security.

New Email Address;  parish.stjc@northamptondiocese.org .

Our Diocese has given a directive that all the parishes of our Diocese must now comply with a certain email address format in the interest of cyber security. This will mean that only this new email address can be used for parish/diocesan communication. This becomes mandatory as and from January 1st, 2022.  All old email addresses will no longer be operative. A good practice is to start now using our new parish email address which means your communication will be viewed and responded to securely.

 All communication from our parish will  come to you now via this email address: parish.stjc@northamptondiocese.org .  Your cooperation here is appreciated in the interest of  us all. 

Canon John.
