St Joseph's Parish
St Joseph's Catholic Church
At St Joseph's school we are blessed to have such a beautiful church right next to our school and a very welcoming and thriving parish that serves the Bilton area in the north of Harrogate and is part of the Diocese of Leeds.
Our parish Priest is Father Stephen who is a regular visitor to school with his gorgeous Labrador Pablo! Father Stephen is also the Roman Catholic Officiating Chaplain to the Army Foundation College and is the Leeds Diocesan Director of Vocations. Fr Stephen has over 26 years' experience in parish ministry but has been a priest in the Diocese of Leeds since January 2007.
We enjoy Father Stehen's visits to classes as he is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom on all matter of subjects. His homilies are like no other, we certainly always learn from them, how to be a better Christian.
