The Archbishop’s Certificate (ArchCert) is an online course for all in Southwark who wish to know their Catholic faith more deeply. Participants will take a two-year journey through the Church’s teaching to understand their faith in a more
profound way and be able to share it with both confidence and joy. The course will commence in October 2021 and the cost will be £365 per year. Registration must be completed in advance. Further details can be found here: https://aec.rcaos.org.uk/archcert. Note: For previous courses we have suggested a sharing of the total cost between participant and parish, we suggest you may wish to consider this arrangement here.

Easyfundraising
So far this has generated donations of £
212.19 which is pretty impressive. If more parishioners sign up Easyfundraising has potential to generate over £1,000 p.a. for St Augustine's which would be very valuable in these difficult times.
Please support St Augustine of Canterbury - Parkwood on Easyfundraising, you can raise FREE donations when you shop online with over 5,000 retailers. It's simple and only takes 2 minutes to sign up! Please sign up now at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/staugustineofcanterbury/
It is a simple process. When you register please select St Augustine of Canterbury, Parkwood as your preferred charity. Each time you shop on line please log on to Easyfundraising first and then select your retailer e.g. Argos and you will be directed to their site and you then shop in the usual way. There is no additional complication involved. As an initial target for St Augustine's it would be great if we could see 50 parishioners signing up. Please do try and give it a go. Thank you.

If you are a taxpayer signing up to GiftAid would be another easy win as the Parish would receive an extra 25p for every £1 you put in the weekly collection without any extra cost or hassle to you. Please speak with Father Adams or our GiftAid co-ordinator Joe Flannery if you are interested in this. Or e-mail them on parkwood@rcaos.org.uk

St Augustine of Canterbury School has vacancies for Foundation Governors to join the Board of Governors. The requirement from the Catholic Church is that they must be a practising Catholic and if they have children send them to a Catholic school. St Augustine's is a very successful school and has recently completed a major building project to enhance the the facilities available to the school.
We are seeking individuals who would be willing to join us and the main commitment would be giving up some of your free time!
