Today we hear the story of the Transfiguration.

We also have our CAFOD collection today. This year CAFOD are highlighting the need for water amongst some of the poorest people in the world. Here is part of Abdella’s story:

Abdella lives in an extremely remote and mountainous region of Ethiopia - one of the hottest places on the surface of the planet. Refreshing water is a long way away. Abdella tells us: ‘The journey for water is so long we have to leave early in the morning. It is dark. I feel tired, I feel hungry. It is very boring. It is hard but I have no choice.’ Abdella is forced to walk for ten hours across dangerous terrain, on an almost daily basis, just to collect two cans of water. Sadly, there are millions like him. One in three people globally do not have access to safe drinking water. But with your support this Lent we can reach out and make a powerful difference. To hear more of Abdella’s story visit cafod.org uk/lent

As usual, envelopes are available for those who are attending Mass.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.

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 continues 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. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t join last week - you are still welcome!

Sacramental Preparation…. It has been decided to postpone Confirmation preparation for this year. We only had three candidates. It might be possible to join with another parish later in the year but at the moment, nothing is definite.

Money matters,,, at St Teresa's last week’s collection came to £284.79 and St Dunstan’s £254.

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. All assistance is carried out with kindness and respect.


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".

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