Lenten Project

On 7th June 2017, Fr Pepe visited the newly built Alexander Devine Children's Hospice to present a cheque for £2,500 on behalf of our Parish. The money was raised through our Lenten Project this year. Julia Philipson, Community Fundraiser for the charity told Fr Pepe "this is a wonderful amount of money for us to receive to support local children with life limiting and life threatening conditions and we are so thankful to you and your congregation at St Edmund Campion!"

As well as presenting the cheque, Fr Pepe was also given a tour of the hospice which really helped to bring the project to life.

Thank you to everyone in the parish for supporting this local charity during lent!

Parish Priest

Father José Clavería (Pepe) writes:

I was born in San Sebastián in Spain in 1962, the 10th of 12 siblings. At the age of 14 I moved with my family to Madrid, where I went on to study economics and law at University. It was while at university that I joined the catholic movement Communion and Liberation. I began training for the priesthood in 1985 and was ordained in 1992. Read more.

Refurbished Parish Centre Opens

Parishioners young and old of St Edmund Campion Roman Catholic church in Altwood Road, Maidenhead, gathered last Friday for a pot luck supper to celebrate the opening of their newly extended and refurbished Parish Centre. The ribbon was cut by Hannah Foster, aged 6, after which parish priest Fr. 'Pepe' Claveria blessed the centre and gave a short speech outlining how the plan for the centre had come about 2½ years ago, and then came to fruition with the generous help of many people in the parish, starting with a wide consultation as to the scope of the project.

Homily: The Ascension of the Lord (28 May 2017)

The Ascension of the Lord is the feast of the new way of the Lord's presence. It is the feast of "I-have-left-only-so-that-I-can-remain". The Lord has finished his mission on this earth and now it seems to be time to say farewell. The disciples are devastated. They don't want to see an end to this relationship. Jesus has changed their lives in a massive way. Jesus chooses a way to remain that allows him to be present in other countries and centuries all over the times and places of this world. The Lord remains present wherever two or three people are together in his name. Wherever a family prays, wherever a group of people gather and share their lives, wherever a few are friends because of him, there the Spirit of Jesus works in people and things start to happen.
