Welcome to our Parish Website for Christ the King & St Augustine’s.
From this weeks newsletter..Greetings from China! We have arrived safely and are having a great time. We have just finished a four day river cruise from Shangai to Yichang. It is a very interesting place to visit, not only for well known landmarks, but also to see how the underground Catholic Church survives in a communist country. Pope Francis is working at the moment to bring the Catholic Church and the Communist State closer together and working towards unity between the underground Catholic Church which is in Communion with Rome and the official Catholic Church, which is still controlled by the Communist Party. Thank you to Fr Michael Stack for taking care of things while I am away. He will be assisted by Fr Michael Dolman, and Fr Andrew Franklin will be helping over two of the weekends. I will be back on 29th October.….. Very Rev Canon Tom Farrell, Parish Priest.
