Welcome to Saint Augustine

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

Saint Augustine 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.

New Message Series: FAITH@WORK

Whether you are in a traditional job, searching for a job, in retirement, a student, a stay-at-home parent, or in another situation, your occupation–the work you do from day-to-day matters to God.

Faith@Work

FAITH@WORK  > Week 5: Love Your Neighbor @ Work

How does our faith make a difference in how we treat others at work? The “Golden Rule” does not just challenge us to do the “moral” or “right” thing at work, but to do the loving thing–treating them as we would want to be treated.  What does this really mean when our work neighbors include both our co-workers and competitors, and both our customers and those serving us?

FAITH@WORK  > Week 4: Fixing the System

No matter how much effort and love we put into our individual work, if the system we are working within is broken and dysfunctional, we cannot do our best work. Our responsibility as Christians extends to transforming and improving systems (sometimes referred to as “social justice”), not just our own individual work.

FAITH@WORK  > Week 3: Balancing Work

While work itself is not bad, it can become unhealthy and take over our lives if we let it. This is an age-old problem and one of the reasons that Sabbath–taking a day of rest–is part of our tradition. God (and Jesus) modeled for us how to take a rest from work, and commanded us to do so, too.

FAITH@WORK  > Week 2: Just Work

In the Gospel parable we heard this week, a landowner’s servants and son are murdered by the tenants. This invites us to consider the treatment of workers everywhere. Jesus is present in workers, especially the “least of these.” What rights do you believe everyone should have?  What can you do do make those rights a reality?

FAITH@WORK  > Week 1: Doing a Good Job

We don’t have to be in a particularly noble job for it to have value. God values our work, and simply doing a competent, intentional, good job is serving both God and others.  God asked us to be caretakers of the earth through our work. This is the starting point for embracing a spirituality of work.
