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.

This weekend we return to Ordinary time.

We also celebrate Peace Sunday and this year Pope Francis asks us to think about a ‘Culture of Care as a Path to Peace’. “How many resources ,” he says, “ are spent on weaponry, especially nuclear weapons, that could be used for more significant priorities such as ensuring the safety of individuals, the promotion of peace and integral human development, the fight against poverty, and the provision of health care.” Pope Francis calls on us to “strive daily, in concrete and practical ways, to form a community composed of brothers and sisters who accept and care for one another.”

Next Sunday is the Sunday of the Word of God. To mark this Bishop David will be live streaming a Bible Service for the Cathedral at 3pm.

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, we would like, firstly, that you complete an application form which will give some idea of how many candidates there are likely to be. 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 £230.64 and St Dunstan’s TBA Last  weekend’s retiring collection for the White Flower Appeal - the Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child raised £245.20.

Mongu..many good causes are looking for our help this year. Presents and our usual annual donation will shortly be arriving in Mongu. But with no Fete and other regular fundraising events, we are asking those who can to make a Christmas Donation to Mongu. Donations can be left via the presbytery or parish office. You can also make a bank transfer and if you can Gift Aid that will increase the donation. More information in the narhex and online.

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.




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
