This month, as part of Christian Aid Week (10th to 16th May), we are invited to join with Christian Aid supporters in Marlow in reading all 150 Psalms end to end, on Zoom. This event will be on Sunday 16th May, from 12pm to approximately 7pm. Phew! But you don't have to be there the whole time.
We need LOTS of readers, and we hope that everyone who reads will get their friends and family to sponsor them, raising bags of money for Christian Aid. So please join in! Go to https://tinyurl.com/psalmathonFor more details and to book your place as a reader: you will be asked to specify a one-hour slot during which you will get your turn. There is a £5 registration fee. We will then send you full details and you will be encouraged to get sponsorship. Nearer the time, we’ll confirm which Psalm(s) you will be reading, and we will send you the Zoom code for the event.
IF you cannot attend daily Mass
We are delighted to announce that Fr Kevin Jones and Dr Judith Thomas have each very kindly agreed to share their personal spiritual journey with us. They have both led unique and fascinating lives. For many of us, when we have heard a little of their stories, we have been inspired, curious and keen to learn a little more. So, this opportunity is a real treat. We hope you will be able to join us on Zoom for two interesting and entertaining evenings.
Dr Judith Thomas will share her journey for about an hour on Thursday 27th May from 7pm.
Fr Kevin Jones will share his journey a week later on Thursday 3rd June, also from 7pm.
Mass is celebrated every day and the Church will be open for 30 minutes before and after each Mass for private prayer.

We have an average of 40 people at daily Mass. The Church, with social distancing in mind, can safely cater for up to 90 persons. Therefore, 90 will be our limit at each Mass.
For Masses on Saturday and Sunday, in order to comply with Covid-19 legislation, you will be obliged to sign up in advance picking the Mass, providing a contact name and phone number and selecting the number of people who will attend.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before Mass starts, so that hand sanitation and seating can go as calmly as possible before Mass starts.
The form to sign-up to attend weekend Mass is here
Note: Sign-up for each weekend closes at 6pm on the Friday and immediately opens for the following weekend.
Sacrament of Reconciliation each Saturday: 11am – 12pm & 5pm – 5.45pm, or any other time that is arranged privately with the priest.
Mass Attendance Card: This will begin once again from 3rd December, and can be stamped on whatever day you and your family attend.
Please read the full details of the Guidelines for Returning to the Churches for Prayers and Public Worship, before coming to the church.
It is greatly appreciated that many of you transferred your 'church offering' from cash to direct debit and standing order over the last number of months. Our parish has had its financial income greatly reduced and this has impacted on our church activities, donations to various charities and parish maintenance. From September 1st, there will be an Offertory Collection Box at the church entrance and exit each day if you wish to make a very welcome donation.
Also, we have just installed a shiny, new Contactless Payment Machine where you can easily 'tap' a donation.
NB: It would be really helpful for the parish if the vast majority of our Weekly Collection could be done via Direct Debit / Standing Order. At present, we are a vastly cash—giving parish, and with the dramatic decrease in donations, it is very hard to plan and donate to those most vulnerable and in need, as well as care for our parish community.
Fr. Liam asks that you reflect and, if possible, switch your donation from cash to bank. This would be invaluable and would give the Parish Council and Finance Committee more solidity in planning for the months/years ahead.
If you wish, you can still give a donation via the parish account:
Name: St Edmund Campion Church
Account no.: 00882551
We have set up an easy way to support us:

Finally, while we will continue to take appropriate precautions consistent with the advice of public health authorities, parishioners should understand that they assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 any time they enter a public space since such precautions do not eliminate the risk of infection.
I thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these strange times as we continue to move forward in hope, and we continue to pray for an end to this pandemic.
St. Edmund Campion, pray for us.
Yours in Christ,
Come and pray...

As a Mill Hill Missionary (millhillmissionaries.com), I have spent a good period of my adult life ministering in Africa, namely Cameroon and Kenya. I was appointed to England to do Mission Animation (Missio and Mill Hill) for a number of Dioceses in 2012. I really enjoyed this work and it involved a good amount of travelling and meeting lots of people. Read more.
