Welcome to our Parish Website for Christ the King & St Augustine’s.
COVENTRY WINTER NIGHT SHELTER has been running through the winter and runs until 31st March 2018. The catholic community is represented by the shelter at St Osburgs on Wednesday nights, and it also coordinates Monday nights at St Columbas. We really appreciate all the help the parishioners have given us and the generosity that has been shown. However, as the project enters its final few weeks we are hoping for donations of the following items in the night shelter box in the church. We are very short of supplies of the following: Coffee, Sugar, Mens boxers – size small, medium. Mens body spray / spray deodorant. Drinking chocolate, Cupasoup, Pot noodles. Squash, Biscuits, Cereals (small variety pack type), Tooth brushes, Tooth paste, Disposable razors and shaving foam. Any donations of cash (or cheque or bank transfer) will also be very gratefully received to help with the costs of heating the very large hall at St Osburgs.

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.
