Welcome to St Peter’s Church.
We are a Roman Catholic church made up of the old church designed by Pugin, the new church and three church halls called the Pugin Rooms. I am the Parish Priest, Fr Michael, and I thank you for visiting our website.
Fr Michael to retire next year
“I reach 75 on March 5th next year and, as is required by church law, I have asked the Bishop if I might stand down as Parish Priest of Marlow after Easter 2021. Mindful that my health has been a struggle of late, the Bishop has kindly accepted my resignation, to take effect mid April 2021. Please surround me with your prayers at this time, that my Parkinson’s may continue to be kept at bay for a while if it be His will. You will certainly continue to be kept in my prayers. I quoted St Augustine of Hippo at one of the Masses last Sunday. He was speaking of the parish clergy
“ We live here with you,
We live here because of you,
And it is our firm intention
To live with you
For ever in Heaven.”

MISSION RED BOX – at the moment it is not possible for your Red Box to be collected at church for counting as normal. Missio has set up various other ways to send your Red Box money so that those missionaries and communities who need our help can be reached as soon as possible. Please count the money in your Red Box and send a cheque to Red Box, 23 Eccleston Square, London SW1V 1NU or go to missio.org.uk/redbox for details of other ways to pay. Pick up your Mission Today magazine and other information on the way out of church after Mass. Further enquiries? Contact Marjorie at 01628 email@example.com

CHRISTMAS WINDOW DISPLAYS St Peter’s School is running something new this Christmas by creating a trail of Christmas window displays. It will make a big impact on Marlow this festive season and spread happiness and joy during this challenging time. So far we have 12 houses and our church taking place. In order to make a mapped trail worthwhile, we need at least 20 houses in Marlow. Please consider asking friends and family to join us in this project and either send them the link to the survey or send an email to the School – with their name, road name, and contact details. We are still encouraging those who do not live in Marlow to decorate a window and share to the school facebook/instagram page. As well as this being a project that intends to uplift the community, it also is an opportunity to advertise our lovely school, so please support this project. If you have any questions please email Mrs Boyle at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for committing to the project was Friday 13th November but if you can do it please get in touch ASAP. Survey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/78XHV3W
COMMUNITY OUTREACH Community outreach in progress, stay tuned!
We are looking for a window cleaner for the church, if you know of someone please call Madeline on 07896718094.
