Today is the First Sunday in Lent

Traditionally we hear the story of the Temptation of Jesus in the desert. Jesus prepares himself for his public ministry just as in the 40 days of Lent, we strive to come closer to God.

It was great seeing a good number of people at Mass for Ash Wednesday - probably around 100 at the two Masses at St Teresa’s and about 40 at St Dunstan’s. Let’s hope and pray that we will continue to grow in confidence and a return to Mass as we move out of lockdown.

This Friday (26th February) is Family Fast Day when we are encouraged to go without one meal and use the money saved to support CAFOD. This year they are using the money raised to end water poverty. They are highlighting the story of Abdella who walks 10 hours everyday to find water for his family.

As usual, envelopes are available for those who are attending Mass and we will have a collection next weekend. Donations can always be left at the presbytery in an envelope marked, CAFOD. You can give online or simply text LENT 10 to 70460 to give £10 ( enough for sturdy water containers to store clean water safely) Or add the amount you’d like to donate eg Text LENT 20 to give £20.

To hear more of Abdella’s story visit cafod.org.uk/lent 

After the 9.30am Mass on Fridays in Lent we will have Stations of the Cross. It will be live streamed.

Our Lent study group starts this Monday at 7.30pm. We will be looking at Henri Nouwen’s book, ‘The Return of the Prodigal - a story of homecoming. There is no need to book just join the Zoom meeting.(ID 82714221373 Passcode 2020) You will need to have a copy of Rembrandt’s Return of the Prodigal. If you email the office, we will ensure that you get one - a replica!

Sacramental Preparation….we begin our preparation for First Holy Communion this Tuesday with a parents’ meeting held via Zoom. We have 14 candidates, so please keep them in your prayers. 

Applications are also being taken for our Confirmation programme.Forms are available online. Please return them to the presbytery or parish office as soon as possible.

Money matters,,, at St Teresa's last week’s collection came to £485 and St Dunstan’s £298.45.

A parishioner at St Teresa’s...seeks self-contained guest annexe or one-bedroomed flat in the area as soon as possible. If you know of something, please contact Helen Lodge at helenlodge7@gmail.com or 07597190088

One Can Trust….. are desperately in need of cash donations and food items such as: 500g bags of rice;tea;toothbrushes,soap, toilet rolls. Items can be left in the entrance to the Parish Centre.

As the financial impact of the pandemic affects more people, many will be in food poverty.If this happens to you or someone you know, please contact the One Can Trust by phone or email. To access help you will need a referral from either Beaconsfield Advisory Centre, Better Connected Beaconsfield, your church, health visitor or children’s school.Every enquiry is dealt with in complete confidence and food is delivered.

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".

Please make yourself at home, and if you have any comments, questions or thoughts, please
