Welcome to our Parish

A very warm welcome to the web site of The Parish of Egham, incorporating the Catholic churches of Our Lady of the Assumption, Englefield Green (EG) and St John of Rochester, Egham Hythe (EH). Our Parish Priest is Father Chris Spain and his contact details can be found here.

Holy Week 2019

On Palm Sunday, we celebrate Our Lord’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem where he was welcomed by the crowds worshiping him and laying down palm leaves before him. Palm branches are widely recognised as symbols of peace and victory. Our carrying of the sacramental palms and cries of “Hosanna” show that we share in the ultimate joy of Christ’s resurrection.
By contrast, Palm Sunday also marks the beginning of Holy Week, with the Passion and Death of Jesus.

No greater love can a man have than to lay down his life for his friends.  Lord God, we see your love for us in the suffering and death of your Son.

Help us to respond to this love by loving one another, and responding by our journey with your Son through this most sacred of weeks.

Buildings & Finance Update

Please ensure you read your Spring Update! We thank Jim for his hard work in putting this together and hope and pray for more parishioners to be responsive in supporting the work of our ongoing development. All of this needs to be looked at alongside a pastoral, spiritual, liturgical and strategic plan and a parish community open to involvement and growth.
