Not much has changed regarding the opening of our churches which is still scheduled for the beginning of July. As I said last week, we will need stewards on hand to ensure that we are complying with Government guidelines regarding hygiene and social distancing. These people cannot include those instructed to shield themselves, or, as a general rule, from groups considered more vulnerable to coronavirus. However, if you do not fall into those categories, you might consider if you could give some time so as to open our churches once more for prayer. Although we have a month to get ready, you might like to phone through your name to me or email me on Thanks to those who have already done this!

This weekend we celebrate Pentecost and after Mass this Sunday we will have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament concluding at midday with benediction. There is also an online service to mark Pentecost involving all the churches of Beaconsfield. See the poster for ‘joining’ details!

The drawings that we received to mark the feasts of Ascension and Pentecost are displayed on the outward facing windows of the narthex – have a look if you are in the area! 

The group meeting on Monday evenings will resume again on the 1st June at 7.30pm. We will be meeting via Zoom. Having taken a look at the gospel of Matthew, now we are going to delve into the Acts of the Apostles. 

The 36 hours of prayer to mark the Thy Kingdom Come initiative was very successful. Nine churches in the Bourne End area took part! Let’s continue to pray for the coming of God’s kingdom and for the continuing joint witnessing of the Churches! 

Given the current restrictions, this year’s fete in aid of Mongu has been cancelled. We will see if other ways can be found to support the work of Mongu later in the year.

Congratulations to Jim and Christine Murray who this weekend celebrate their 50th Wedding anniversary! Bishop Peter reminded us a few months back that we should always celebrate anniversaries of marriage! So to Jim and Christine today, we offer our love and congratulations!!

The Diocese has introduced a new way of making donations to the parish – ‘Giving Tuesday’. All you need to do is phone 01604 712065 and make a donation to the parish. You will need a credit or debit card to hand and you will be able to make a one-off donation to cover missed Sunday offerings or simply call each week to make an offering. Patience may be needed, as only one person will be taking these calls, but if you leave details on the answer machine someone will get back to you!

Live streaming of Mass will continue over the next few weeks – 9am every weekday morning and 10am on Sunday.

May God continue to bless you and your families as we now move into Ordinary Time!

Welcome to St Dunstan's Catholic Church, Bourne End

St. Dunstan's R.C. Church is located in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire bordering on the River Thames. St. Dunstan's Parish is clustered with St Teresa's in Beaconsfield (

On Sunday, 15th April 1956, the first Catholic Church in Bourne End - St Dunstan's - was blessed by Bishop Parker of Northampton. The simple wooden building was a result of eight months' work at weekends and evenings by an enthusiastic band of parishioners, with only one qualified bricklayer!

Prior to this, the Bourne End congregation attended Mass in the dance hall at the Red Lion Pub near the railway station. Mass at that time was celebrated by priests from Burnham, Father Noel Burditt and Father George McCann.

The 'new' Church was consecrated by Bishop Charles Grant and is of a modern design with a fan-shaped worshipping area, a presbytery, parish offices and a car park.

If you are planning to move to the area, you may be sure of a warm welcome. If you are looking for a Catholic primary school for your children, St Peter's Catholic Combined School in Marlow serves the Parish.

Bourne End has a good selection of shops, a library, a primary school, a secondary school and a railway station (Thames Trains).

Whether for a short visit or a long stay, we hope you will enjoy being part of our 'living community of faith'. Mgr Sean Healy is the Parish Priest for both St Dunstan's Parish and St Teresa's Parish in Beaconsfield.
