This weekend we celebrate Day for Life. This day, inaugurated by Saint John Paul II, presents an opportunity to pray for the gift of life from conception to natural death, to raise awareness of the precious gift of ife, and to support the work of protecting life in its most vulnerable stages through the annual collection. This assists pro-life organisations who raise awareness, engage in parliamentary work and pastoral otreach

Congratulations to the families of Connor Doherty and Aurelia Tindley who will be welcomed at the 8.45am Mass before their baptisms next weekend,        

Also to Katarina Lees and Simon Byrnes who were married at St Teresa’s on Saturday.           

From July we will be introducing car stickers which will make it easier for the Bekanscot car park attendants to identify cars belonging to parishioners who are attending church related functions. The stickers do not guarantee a car parking space nor do they allow parking for any other purpose. The stickers are not compulsory but are designed to alleviate any dispute about parking at busy times.They will cost £5 and will be available from the parish office from this week. Names of purchasers and car registration numbers will also be taken. 

Please note…. Wednesday - 9.30am - Service of Word and Communion followed by exposition until 10,30am at St Teresa’s led by Deacon Brent. On Thursday there will be Mass at 7.30pm

Money matters,,, last week’s collection for  St Teresa’s came to £717.88 and for  St Dunstan’s £264.90. This weekend there is a retiring collection for Day for Life. Next week for Peter’s Pence.

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.
