Welcome to our Parish Website for Christ the King & St Augustine’s.
From this weeks newsletter...This week we received notice that the Parish have been awarded the “Live Simply” Award from CAFOD. Very few parishes have been given this award, so it is a great tribute to the work done by our Justice and Peace Group and acknowledges the many ways in which the Parish tries to reach out to the community, especially those in need. The award was given for our promotion of Third World issues, the work of the Night Shelter, Good Neighbours, the support of the IBBA Girls School and parish community events, such as the Family Camp and the various groups that involve the wider community. It also acknowledged our promotion and use of Fairtrade goods. We have been given a plague to mark the award and this will be fixed in the entrance of the Church. Over the next couple of weekends, we will have Confirmation at Christ the King with Bishop Kenney on the 23rd and 30th June both at 10.00am. We will also have a Blessed Sacrament Procession and family picnic on Sunday 8th July as part of our 12 Noon Mass….… link to full Newsletter. Very Rev Canon Tom Farrell, Parish Priest.

Safeguard the future of Catholic Education The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents some schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. By her own admission, the Secretary of State has said the rule has been ineffective and adversely affects Catholic families. By forcing Catholic schools to turn away Catholic school children on the basis of their faith, the very principle of a Catholic parent’s right to choose a Catholic education is under threat.
