Membership of the group is open to all parishioners attending any of St Joseph’s, St Edward’s and St Mary’s Chapel, Lulworth, and, indeed, you are welcome to join the group, or just come and see what is going on, at any time. We advertise the details of our meetings in the parish newsletter. CAFOD, The Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, is the development agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales (Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own), and is accountable to the Bishops of England and Wales.



The parish choir meets on Friday evenings at 7.30pm at St Joseph's Church in Wool (dates as notified in the weekly newsletter). Our music is for inclusion in Masses and we try to introduce new hymns when appropriate. New members are always welcome. The only real requirement is that you can sing in tune!
