Joseph House is a young men's house of discernment, an innovative living space for young Catholic men to uncover the call to holiness that comes through baptism. Residents will contemplate, pray and actively discern their vocation, whilst being active in the world maintaining regular work, studies and daily life. 

Throughout a 12-18 month stay, the young men will experience community living and explore an openness to discover where God might be leading them as disciples of Jesus Christ. Residents will meet the challenge of living as Christian men in a fruitful environment, under the guidance of St Joseph as a great role model of virtue and character. The House has the capacity to accommodate sixmen, and has a chapel as well as various common areas to encourage community life and engagement.
