The Catholic Parishes consist of the two Catholic churches in Borehamwood – St Teresa’s and Saints John Fisher and Thomas More. They are served by two priests, Fr Dominic McKenna and Fr Antonio, and a combined parish team. All sacramental programmes, social outreach, fundraising, spiritual and social events take place jointly between the two churches.
Borehamwood is just in Hertfordshire bordering the London Borough of Barnet. Famous for its association with films and film making, it still has Elstree Studios with its infamous ‘Big Brother House’, and the BBC studios where EastEnders, Holby City etc. are filmed.
St.Teresa of The Child Jesus is the larger of the two churches. It is situated at 291 Shenley Road opposite Hertsmere Civic Offices and close to Elstree Studios. The church of SS. John Fisher and Thomas More is on Rossington Avenue close to the northern end of Borehamwood. At the moment we have a mass going population of around 750 to 800, with a very ethnically diverse congregation spanning all age groups with a major bulge on the infant and toddler spectrum. St. Teresa’s Primary is our parish school and at the moment it is a one-form entry but well over-subscribed.
