Dear Parishioner,

Thanks to all those who have helped us get both churches ready for opening this weekend. It really is good that we are able to welcome people back and we keep in our thoughts and prayers those who are still shielding and self-isolating as they are still very much of our community! We will continue the track and trace procedures that we have put in place even though now we are told that these are not mandatory. I think it helps people feel safer in these difficult times So please, continue to use the online system of recording your names. The celebration of Mass will be slightly different – more like a weekday celebration than our usual Sunday experience. The Mass, of course, is at the heart of our Catholic way of life, so its celebration is always important and meaningful to us. Please remember these simple guidelines:

Try to avoid congregating in the narthex or foyer of church.

Stewards will be on hand to offer advice.

The Mass will be shorter with no congregational singing and no children’s liturgy.

Communion will be distributed under one kind and there is no obligation to receive Holy Communion. 

The celebration will need to be conducted within the parameters of social distancing and hygiene.

It will not be possible to gather after Mass for tea or coffee.

The obligation to attend Mass on Sunday is still suspended and it may be that some people may prefer to attend Mass during the week when the church will be less busy. Both churches will remain closed during the week and will only open for the celebration of the Mass. Live streaming from St Teresa’s will continue on Sunday at 11.30am and weekdays on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday at 9.30am. 

There will be a cap on the number able to attend Mass as social distancing means that we cannot use every pew and every seat. Thanks to those who have volunteered to act as stewards and they will help to ensure that all runs smoothly. But, of course, we will rely on the cooperation and goodwill of everyone! 

At the recent Parish Council meeting, via Zoom the plans for fundraising for Mongu were discussed. The event on the 23rd August didn’t receive a great deal of support, so the idea is being rethought! But we will want to do all that we can to raise money for Mongu this year.

If you do have a Lenten money box for Mongu, these can now be handed in.

The London and Slough runs are still very much in need of your support. Items can be left in the porch of the parish centre from 10am-4pm every Sunday.

St John Henry Newman Parish are hosting a Zoom meeting for café Beloved Disciples course. It is being led by Deacon Paul Priestley. It is on Saturdays at 11am starting on the 27th June through till the 18th July – Each week either David Wells or David Payne will give a recorded talk. Please contact or 07591462894 in advance for a meeting invitation.

It is possible to purchase copies of the TABLET – they are on sale in the narthex. Also MAGNIFICAT for July is on sale

May God continue to bless you and your families.

 Best wishes - Fr Seán, Fr Shyju , Deacon Brent and Sister Winifred.

Welcome to St Teresa's Catholic Church, Beaconsfield

St Teresa's Church is located in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire in the United Kingdom and is situated opposite Bekonscot Model Village - a local tourist attraction. To find us couldn't be easier - just follow the signs to the Model Village and they will lead you right into our car park, which visitors to Bekonscot are also permitted to use.

The church was built in 1926, the year after St Therese of Lisieux was canonised, and so was one of the first churches in England to be dedicated to her. It is built in neo-gothic style which gives it a traditional atmosphere as you can see from the pictures of the interior. But it is small enough to feel homely and, we hope, welcoming.

Our most illustrious parishioner was Gilbert Keith Chesterton. Many of the artefacts in the church are associated with him - including a statue of Our Lady - and the tower end of the church with its Martyrs Chapel was completed as a memorial to him.

Whether for a short visit or a long stay, we hope you will enjoying being part of our 'living community of faith".
