Welcome to the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and St. Joseph, Ware.

Located within the Diocese of Westminster, the church aims to reinforce the Roman Catholic faith in the small market town of Ware and its surrounding villages.

Welcome Fr. Charles:

The parishioners of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and St Joseph welcome Fr Charles Cahill as our new Parish Priest.

We ask God's blessing on Fr Charles, that he may have many years of happiness in his new ministry here in Ware.

Fr. John's Retirement:

The parishioners of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and St Joseph would like to thank Fr John Gray as he retires, on 2nd September, as our Parish Priest after more than twelve years, and over thirty-four years as a priest of Westminster Diocese.

During his time in Ware Fr John has been a welcome pastor to his parishioners as he has accompanied them in their faith, providing guidance and support, and administrating the sacraments at each stage of their journey.

He has provided support also for Sacred Heart School in Ware, and St Mary's Catholic School in Bishop's Stortford.

A familiar face in the town, and working actively with the other local churches, Fr John has worked for the benefit of all the people of Ware. Fr John has frequently led the town council in prayer at its civic meetings and events.

We pray that God will give him every blessing in his retirement, and we keep him in our prayers.

There is no other word to say than 'THANK YOU' for the privilege of serving you and your families here in Ware and the surrounding villages for the past twelve and a half years. It has been an honour and a joy.

May God Bless all of you now and in the years ahead.

Fr. John
