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.
