Welcome to our Parish Website for Christ the King & St Augustine’s.Dear Parishioners, this weekend our First Communion children will be presented with Bibles as part of their preparation for the Sacraments. Seeing them being presented with Bibles is a reminder to us all of the importance of the Scriptures, the importance of trying to follow the Readings carefully in Mass and perhaps taking down our Bible at home and reading from time to time. When we come to Mass, we are fed both by the Eucharist and by the “Word of God”. This week our student Priest, Sean Gough will be returning to Oscott College to resume his training. He has been a great help over the last three weeks and has been very generous with his time visiting the schools, many of the parish groups and working at the hospital chaplaincy with Fr Paul Burch. We wish him well on his next stage of his training and hope that he has benefitted from his time with us, he has certainly been kept busy! I am sure that you will remember him in your prayers as he prepares to become a Deacon in the summer and please God a Priest in the summer of 2020…..….. Very Rev Canon Tom Farrell, Parish Priest.
