Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Guildford, made up of four churches, St Joseph, St Pius X, St Marys and St Edwards, Guildford. Our Churches are a strong, vibrant and diverse community within Guildford and the surrounding area. In addition to the rich liturgical programme, there is a wide range of activities that aim to strengthen and deepen faith. The Youth Programme is a particularly strong feature of Guildford and the parish is keen to take forward work on developing the pastoral needs of other groups within the population, especially older people and those who are sick or disabled. Furthermore, there is an embedded culture of volunteering to support all aspects of parish life and over 400 parishioners are active as volunteers.
