Welcome to our parish blog


Welcome to our website and blog.
During this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, let's keep in touch and up-to-date with current advice and information on how to keep well ourselves and look after those in isolation and in need of help.
If you would like to post some information or a message on the parish blog, please email:

Helping in the community

A volunteer scheme will be launched soon within the Parish of Bourne End & Wooburn, in partnership with Wye Valley Volunteers. The aim of the scheme is to make contact (whilst observing safe practice) with those who are in isolation and may need help with shopping, prescription collection, a dog walked or just a phone call once a week to keep in touch and boost morale during this period of social isolation. Volunteers (the number will depend on the length of the street or road) will be allocated a "patch" of houses or a street, so that there is a known contact/s who is offering help to those that need it. 

The Cookham scheme is starting on Monday from Elizabeth House Day Centre, but our local one is taking a bit longer as we have 15,000 households in the Parish not 3,000!  If you are interested in helping in any way, OR you know someone that you think might need help and would not be on the radar of the surgeries or other agency, please email Miriam Blazey at: Thank you.



Statement from Catholic Bishops of England & Wales

Parishes of St Teresa's and St Dunstan's - Staying in touch

As this period of self-isolation and restricted social contact begins, it will be important to safeguard our own health and well-being but to also remember those who will be struggling during this time. Whilst we are unable to celebrate Mass together, let's use the parish blog to stay in touch with each other and reach out if we feel lonely or in need of help in any way. We can post ideas on how to make the best of the situation: how we can still pray together, tips on keeping fit and healthy - both mentally and physically, ideas on crafts and activities, suggestions on how and where to find food and supplies... I am sure we can all be very creative!
