It was thanks to the arrival of Father Joseph Clemente as Chaplain to Baylis House School in around 1883 that St Ethelbert's was ever built. Over the next 17 years he worked tirelessly on the difficult task of raising money for a church in Slough. In a couple of years he acquired the freehold on a plot of land on Herschel Street. A disused warehouse and stable were converted to become the first St Ethelbert's Church, opening for worship on 4 th November 1885. Two sheds became the first St Ethelbert's school and a Soup Kitchen.
In 1888, Father Clemente gave up his chaplaincy at Baylis House in order to devote himself entirely to his work as priest at St. Ethelbert's. In that same year land was bought for a new church on Curzon Street. Work on the building eventually began in 1907, after Mother Lucie Destailleurs, superior of St. Bernard's Convent donated sufficient funds in memory of her parents.
The last 20 years has seen large numbers arrive from the Asian sub-continent, the Philippines, Nigeria and Zimbabwe, and all have played a part in enriching the worship and prayer life of St Ethelbert's and continuing that caring ethos advocated so strongly by Father Clemente.
Father Clemente, who had been appointed Chaplain at Baylis House in 1882, and had established the Roman Catholic Chapel in Herschel Street in 1885, was instrumental in having a school built next to the chapel, and fronting on Victoria Street, in 1886, with a large donation from the Dowager Duchess of Buccleuch, of Ditton Park, who had been converted to Roman Catholicism. (21) The school opened with 25 children.
It must have been a wonderful two days for the Parish Priest, Father Joseph Clemente from Bari in Southern Italy. Two and half years beforehand at Midnight Mass in 1907 Father Clemente had been able to announce that the project of building the church would be going ahead thanks to the generosity of the Lady Superior of the Bernadine Sisters who had made a large donation in memory of her parents.
What a joy this would be for Fr. Clemente and for all the priests who have served this parish.
Built with faith, hope and love by Father Clemente and that early community one hundred years ago, may the faith, hope and love of the community of the church today continue to be the soul at the heart of Slough.

Six years ago, Father Joseph Clemente, a pastor at St. Matthew's Church in East Syracuse, took a trip to Rome that turned into an extraordinary experience.He celebrated mass with Pope John Paul II at his private chapel in Vatican City."I was scared- I couldn't believe I was really there.I'd seen him before in St. Peter's Square, there were always thousands there, but it was just four other priests and me," Father Clemente said.
He described the Pope as a man of mysticism, who radiated holiness.Father Clemente hopes the world will continue to recognize his accomplishments."I think the world will sense the absence of this great head of state," Father Clemente said.
Twelve teachers will lose their jobs, ..., 6 Jan 2010 [cached]
Twelve teachers will lose their jobs, along with about eight support staff, which made the decision even more difficult, said Rev. Joseph Clemente, pastor at St. Matthew's Church in East Syracuse. Clemente said he and St. Daniel's Pastor Rev. Monsignor Eugene Yennock, told parents of the difficult decision to shut down at a meeting Tuesday night .
Clemente said the economy is making it difficult for parents to pay the $3,740 annual tuition. "We know it's not displeasure with our school because we conducted exit interviews with those who left and they told us it was an inability to pay the tuition," he said. "It's the economic conditions that exist in our area."
Many parents who left the school said they are moving or had lost their job and couldn't pay the tuition, Clemente said. The parish also is less able to offer tuition assistance to families because the economy has also affected the community and parish's ability to contribute to the school. Money raised through fundraisers goes to help families, but there is less available, he said.
"It's a huge loss," Clemente said.
The two schools started in the 1950s, and Clemente said St. Daniel's originally had about 800 students during the 1960s. The school has been a vibrant part of the East Syracuse community, and a social center as well as an educational institution, Clemente said.
"More is lost with this closing that people will realize," he said.
Clemente said the day care at the school, along with its pre-K and after-school program, will continue operating.
