Welcome

 

Welcome to Saint Augustine Catholic Church

A Place to Belong, A Way to Believe, A Path to Belong

Saint Augustine’s is a Catholic Church known for hospitality. You will find good preaching, great music, and worship that reflect faith in action.  Although we are a Catholic Church, we serve many non-Catholics and minister to a diverse mix of cultures, ages, and families.  Our mission is to strengthen our relationship with God through Jesus Christ by ministering to the spiritual needs of our parish family, while also reaching out to the broader community. We are committed to bringing God’s Kingdom of love and justice to the world.

Questions of the Week

For Adults:
What gift of service have you received from the Holy Spirit and how well are you using it right now?
For Children: 
What gift do you hope to receive from the Holy Spirit?  How could you use it to serve others?

From Laudato Si, Section 50:

 
“…one way of refusing to face the issues…is to legitimize the
present model of distribution, where a minority believes that it has
the right to consume in a way which could never be universalized,
since the planet could not even contain the waste products of such
consumption. Besides, we know that approximately a third of all food
produced is discarded, and ” whenever food is thrown out it is as if
it were stolen from the table of the poor”….”a rise in consumption
would lead to complex regional situations, as a result of the
interplay between problems linked to environmental  pollution,
transport, waste treatment, loss of resources and quality of life”
