Welcome to our Parish website for Christ the King & St Augustine’s.
From this weeks newsletter 23rd February Dear Parishioners….this week we begin our Lenten Journey. Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and we have a choice of four Masses. I know that it is half term and many of you will be away, but if you are around, please try to come to Mass and receive your ashes. We have all the Lenten materials available this weekend link. We will have regular Stations of the Cross, some extra masses, the Service of Anointing for the Sick and Housebound and our Passover Meal. There will also be opportunities for Confession and a Penance Service with visiting Priests. These are all arranged to help you make the most of Lent. There are also “Walk With Me” Books and Calendars available, free of charge! We also have a weekly Lenten Prayer Group on Tuesday’s at 2.00pm in the Meeting Room.….Fr Tom
