More and more people are using apps for information, it is a much quicker source of information and the App ideal for mobile devices . The app allows people to access lots of useful information about the deanery and also a feature called geofencing which lets you know what parish you are in at a particular time and updates that information as you change location. Young people are so used to apps this will be an easy way for them find out more about their local Catholic community. The Deanery is home to two large universities, Warwick University and Coventry University with combined student numbers of 50,000.The app will allow them to access chaplaincy resources as well as information about local parishes where there is lots of student housing.
