St. Edmund Campion Parish, Maidenhead

Mission Statement

The parish family of Saint Edmund Campion is a multi-cultural, family-friendly community of faith.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, and under the intercession of our patron, Saint Edmund Campion, we celebrate our life in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Our Mission, in this new millennium, is to commit ourselves to evangelise with a renewed missionary zeal.

We bear witness to Jesus Christ through our common bond in the Holy Eucharist, in order to form a people of God, living as one in society, and working to make it more just, unified and peaceful.

We dedicate ourselves to bringing the Good News of life and hope to all around us, as we work ever more diligently in realising the Kingdom of God here among us

St Edmund Campion Catholic Primary School and Nursery

Our primary school and nursery are located on the same site as the church and form an integral part of our parish community.

The nursery offers a stimulating environment to children from the age of 3 with structured learning in a playful atmosphere.

The primary school was rated as "outstanding" by Ofsted in 2009 and also in a recent Diocesan Monitoring visit in attainment and progress in religious education. Details are available on the school's website:

Admission into our school and nursery is based on Mass attendance for some categories. In our parish, in order to help Fr Pepe, we have a card-stamping system; ask him if you require one of these cards. Every time you come to Sunday Mass make sure you get your card stamped to show your attendance. Before your child is due to start school you will need to fill in the school's Supplementary Information Form, signed by Fr Pepe. See the school's website for information on the current Admissions' Policy for St Edmund Campion School.

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.
