LATEST NEWS……. I have decided to delay the opening of St Teresa’s and St Dunstan’s by a week. Hopefully, we will be able to open for the 11th July. I have taken the decision because in the latest Government guidelines they are asking us to have in place a system of ‘test and trace’.  It should be possible to comply with this fairly easily, but it will take a little time and will also require a ‘booking’ to be made on line. Next week we will continue to have a live streamed Mass at 9am, as well as the Sunday Mass at 10am. This will be a disappointment to many, but it is better to be sure that we are doing all that we can to be vigilant during this time of pandemic. Please let anyone you know who was thinking about coming to Mass this weekend about this delay. The churches will be open for private prayer next week at the usual times.

Dear Parishioner,
All is now ready to open the two churches next weekend! Although we were told that a ‘booking’ system would not be required, the Government is asking for some kind of track and trace. The first thing that would be required of you is to sign your name on the booking sheets which can be found here on the website. If someone comes who has not done this, a form will be available on which they can record their name(s) and telephone numbers. This information would be retained securely for 21 days. There will be some differences in how Mass will be celebrated. What might those differences be?
  • 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.
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! 

This week the churches will be open on the following days:
 St Teresa’s: Monday and Wednesday from 10am-12noon and Sunday from 2pm-4pm
St Dunstan’s: Friday from 10am-12noon

We will be adhering to strict hygiene and social distancing rules.

Also thanks to those who made a contribution to parish finances this week - £127 was given!

The Parish Council met via Zoom on Wednesday and 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.

The London and Slough runs are still very much in need of your support (cereals, rice, pasta, tinned tomatoes, tinned soup, tinned meat, tinned tuna and toiletries). These 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.

Live streaming of Mass will continue for this week at 9am. The 7am Mass has now been ended.

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".
