Coming Up: Family Movie Night and St. Vincent de Paul Bundle Sunday 

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:
Which response to God’s call is more natural to you-prayer or action?  Why?
For Children: 
In the past week, when have you prayed and when have you done good things for others?  Which could you do better?


Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation:  The Joy of Love

We will be printing a brief summary of the chapters during the coming weeks.
Introduction:  The joy of love experienced by families is also the joy of the Church. (#1)
Since “time is greater than space,” I would make it clear that not all discussions of doctrinal, moral, or pastoral issues need to be settled by interventions of the magisterium. (#3)
Chapter 2:  The Experiences and Challenges of Families
Ultimately, it is easy nowadays to confuse genuine freedom with the idea that each individual can act arbitrarily, as if there were no truths, values, and principles to provide guidance, and everything were possible and permissible (#34)

We have been called to form consciences, not to replace them (#37)

No union that is temporary or closed to transmission of life can ensure the future of society (#52)

Creation is prior to us and must be received as a gift (#56)
