The parish covers the area of Nelson and Stoke under the patronage of the Holy Family: Joseph, Mary and Jesus. The family with the youth as the domestic church is the locus of our ministry to build a community committed to Christ.
This is our community, our family, our parish!
We envision our community to be committed to Jesus, our Saviour. This is everyone's journey.
We want you to be part of this journey.
Please register to be included in the list of parishioners.
As a family, we will journey with you and together we will discover the joy of being a community of Jesus.
