Today we hear the story of the Transfiguration.

We also have our CAFOD collection today. This year CAFOD are highlighting the need for water amongst some of the poorest people in the world. Here is part of Abdella’s story:

Abdella lives in an extremely remote and mountainous region of Ethiopia - one of the hottest places on the surface of the planet. Refreshing water is a long way away. Abdella tells us: ‘The journey for water is so long we have to leave early in the morning. It is dark. I feel tired, I feel hungry. It is very boring. It is hard but I have no choice.’ Abdella is forced to walk for ten hours across dangerous terrain, on an almost daily basis, just to collect two cans of water. Sadly, there are millions like him. One in three people globally do not have access to safe drinking water. But with your support this Lent we can reach out and make a powerful difference. To hear more of Abdella’s story visit cafod.org uk/lent

As usual, envelopes are available for those who are attending Mass.Donations can always be left at the presbytery in an envelope marked, CAFOD. You can give online or simply text LENT 10 to 70460 to give £10 ( enough for sturdy water containers to store clean water safely) Or add the amount you’d like to donate eg Text LENT 20 to give £20.

After the 9.30am Mass on Fridays in Lent we will have Stations of the Cross. It will be live streamed.

Our Lent study group continues this Monday at 7.30pm. We will be looking at Henri Nouwen’s book, ‘The Return of the Prodigal - a story of homecoming. There is no need to book just join the Zoom meeting.(ID 82714221373 Passcode 2020) You will need to have a copy of Rembrandt’s Return of the Prodigal. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t join last week - you are still welcome!

Sacramental Preparation…. It has been decided to postpone Confirmation preparation for this year. We only had three candidates. It might be possible to join with another parish later in the year but at the moment, nothing is definite.

Money matters,,, at St Teresa's last week’s collection came to £284.79 and St Dunstan’s £254.

A parishioner at St Teresa’s...seeks self-contained guest annexe or one-bedroomed flat in the area as soon as possible. If you know of something, please contact Helen Lodge at helenlodge7@gmail.com or 07597190088

One Can Trust….. are desperately in need of cash donations and food items such as: 500g bags of rice;tea;toothbrushes,soap, toilet rolls. Items can be left in the entrance to the Parish Centre.

As the financial impact of the pandemic affects more people, many will be in food poverty.If this happens to you or someone you know, please contact the One Can Trust by phone or email. To access help you will need a referral from either Beaconsfield Advisory Centre, Better Connected Beaconsfield, your church, health visitor or children’s school.Every enquiry is dealt with in complete confidence and food is delivered. All assistance is carried out with kindness and respect.



Best wishes,

Fr Seán, Fr Shyju, Deacon Brent and Sister Winifred.

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 (http://www.littleflower.co.uk).

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.
