St. Joseph’s Church stands as a beacon of faith in Phuket. We are a place of prayer, peace and joy to all who join us. Our community is richly diverse, with people of different ages and backgrounds coming together to worship and serve together. We welcome all individuals seeking God’s love and our doors are open to every soul seeking to welcome Jesus into their heart.
Today the Laguna Catholic community has approximately 150 resident members made up of Thai and expatriate families of many nationalities and Sunday Mass attendance averages over 100.
Our new church was named after St. Joseph, patron and protector of the Catholic Church. Bishop Joseph Prathan Sridarunsil, Head of the Catholic Church in Southern Thailand was the patron of the project to build St. Joseph’s Church in Phuket. The diocese of Surathani acquired the piece of land in Soi 8 Pasak, approximately 3 rai in size, in April 2010, on which the church now stands.
The Parish Pastoral Council is not a body of representatives but a representative body whose primary function is to set the vision and plan to make “the life and activity of the parish ever more closely conform to the gospel.” Their focus is on the pastoral aspect of the parish.
