The whole parish at St Bernardines and St Martin's would like to thank him for his ministry over the last three years. We would also like to extend a very warm welcome to Fr Andy Ollard to St Bernardines and St Martins who will be joining us this week and am sure you will enjoy your ministry with us.

[01/25/21]   Kate has prepared these words on Fr Dan for us.

Father Dan Kiely, our well loved parish priest for twenty two years, has died of COVID in a nursing home in County Cork.
Father Dan came to Buckingham in 1995 and served St. Bernardine’s Buckingham and St. Martin’s Brackley, with gentleness and compassion until he retired with ill health in 2017.
He was very much at the heart of our parish community and was central to the celebrations of Christenings, First Communions, weddings and funerals. He was a good listener and he had a way of helping his parishioners through difficult times with his calming presence and his wisdom.
Father Dan loved to visit his extended family in Ireland and it was to them that he returned for the last years of his life. He will be greatly missed by them.

[06/22/20]   Update on Church opening - message from Fr Roy .
Reopening Churches for Individual Prayer: The government
has allowed us to open Churches for private payer. I have
obtained permission from the Bishop to open both our Churches
for individual prayer. Accordingly, St. Bernardine will be
opened on all Sundays from 10 am to 12 pm, and on weekdays
from 9 am to 10 am. Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on
Sundays and there will be time for confession during that time.
St. Martin will be opened on all Sunday’s from 9am to 10 am
and Blessed Sacrament will be exposed during that time.
Kindly wear face masks and follow the safety guidelines when
you enter the Church. Please make an effort to go to Church and
spend some time before the Blessed Sacrament.

[06/14/20]   Reopening Churches for Individual Prayer: The government
has given permission to open Churches from Monday, 15th June
for private payer. There are stringent measures to be followed
even for that. However, this is a welcome news and first step
towards resuming other liturgical services soon. At the moment,
Bishop will prioritize those Churches in the Diocese that would
benefit most from the given permission. Since both our
Churches do not have many people going in for individual
prayers, we shall wait for the next stage. However, if anyone
would like to come to St. Bernardine’s for individual prayers,
kindly contact For Roy and he shall make arrangements for you. For
those in Brackley, please call Una Garvey for the same. 04/05/2020

He has remained positive throughout and even helped others by raising £60k by running the London marathon for the Brain Research Trust.

Now we have the opportunity to help Oli by donating what we can to this great cause. If you prefer to donate online you can go to his "gofundme" page,, where you can also read more about Oli's fight.

Please keep Oli and his family in your prayers and if you use social media feel free to share this appeal with others. Please help us raise funds for our much loved son to get treatment for brain cancer. Oli went to the Royal Latin School Buckingham and then on to Uni. He graduated from Pembroke College Cambridge in 2013. He was 22 and just starting out in life with his dream job when he had a seizure completely...
