Fr Javier’s leaving book, collection and party details

Dear Parishioners,

As you know Father Javier will be leaving the parish. His last mass will be on Sunday 12th Sept.

We are hoping to have a gathering after the 11.30 mass (on the 12th Sept) to give us the opportunity to say our goodbyes.

While he is away during July there will be a Memory Book album (at the back of the church after each Mass) for parishioners to write their personal messages.

We also have donation envelopes so that parishioners, who wish to, can contribute towards a financial gift. You can also contribute online via the following link:


Nearer the time (towards the end of August / early Sept) we would hope to enlist parishioners to prepare for the gathering, however this is subject to COVID Restrictions at the time, more details will follow.

The past year and a half has been a difficult time for all of us. Let’s hope we can get together for this special occasion and bring some of the joy back to Bow that we have always enjoyed in the past.

Thanking you in anticipation of your help and support.

    I am so sad to hear that Fr Javier is leaving the parish. He will be solely missed. His lovely smile and welcoming nature has always been an inspiration. I will never forget him and the support he has given to me personally.

    I wish him all the best in his next post.

    Best wishes Joan x
