Given the sharp rise in Corona virus infections, we have been asked to review all our procedures to ensure that we are complying fully with Diocesan and National guidelines.Given that we must remember some very simple instructions:

  • keep two metres distance between people at all times
  • stewards will be at the door to manage the flow of people in and out
  • you may be required to leave your name and contact details with stewards for test and trace
  • wearing face masks when visiting a church is mandatory
  • please use provided hand sanitisers as you enter and leave the church. The church will be ‘fogged’ between Masses

Ultimately, it is the celebrant of the Mass who must feel secure that all these instructions are being followed. If he is in any way dissatisfied, the celebration of the Mass will not be able to proceed.

Today is the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time.

It is also designated as the Sunday of the Word of God. This dedication is to remind us of the importance of the Word of God in our lives of faith and to always give God’s Work due respect and honour. To mark this Sunday, Bishop David  will be live streaming a Bible Service from the Cathedral at 3pm. All are welcome to join,

As Pope Francis reminds us….’Christ Jesus is knocking at our door in the words of sacred Scripture. If we hear his voice and open the doors of our minds and hearts, then he will enter our lives and remain ever with us.’

Sacramental Preparation….we are beginning to prepare for our sacramental programme for 2021. Preparation will be very different from previous years. If you have a child that should be making First Holy Communion this year, please complete an application form. You can download the form from the parish website or if you email office@littleflower.co.uk    or murray.christine@talk21.com a form can be sent to you. 

We will do a similar process for Confirmation candidates at the end of the month.

LUX.Valour weekend…. for 11-18 year olds will be taking place online 30th-31st January. It will be an exploration of what it means to be a young person of great bravery. How can we walk into the unknown of this New Year, confident that we are ‘not given a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power.’ 2Tim1/7. To book got to https://nymo.org/lux-valour/

Money matters,,, at St Teresa's last week’s collection came to £412.22 and St Dunstan’s £124.31 

Mongu..thanks to all those who have made donations over the last few weeks - it is hoped to be able to give some idea of how much has been raised by next weekend. It is still not too late to make a donation - just place your offering in an envelope and either put it in the collection basket or hand it in at the presbytery.

Children’s Liturgy…..Fr Seán has resumed these online! Cafod also has a useful reflection for children preparing for their next Family Fast Day - see the CAFOD website.

Vaccine roll out….if anyone is finding transport to the various venues where the vaccine is being given, parishioners are happy to help. Residents of the Wooburns, Flackwell Heath and Little Marlow requiring transport for vaccination or for testing, can contact Wye Valley Volunteers on 01628 521027 or email enquiries@wyevalleyvolunteers.org.uk

London and Slough Runs/One can Trust - items can still be left in the porch of St Teresa's. 

Parish Council…… The Parish Council is meeting this Thursday. If you have any matters you would like to raise, please email the office as soon as possible.

Shoeboxes...many thanks to all who contributed the 38 superbly filled shoeboxes which were delivered to Romania, Moldova and Ukraine before Christmas. In total the organisation sent 20,768 boxes which was wonderful considering the circumstances! 

Let us Dream: The Path to a Better Future ...Austen Ivereigh who spoke in the parish almost two years ago is speaking on Pope Francis’ book on Saturday, 30th January


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
