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.

Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation:  The Joy of Love

 
Chapter 9 The Spirituality of Marriage and the Family
The spirituality of family love is made up of thousands of small but real gestures. (#315)
A person who cannot choose to love forever can hardly love for even a single day.  (#315)
The spiritual journey of each [spouse] -as Dietrich Bonhoeffer nicely puts it-needs to help them to a certain “disillusionment” with regard to the other, to stop expecting from that person something which is proper to the love of God alone.  (#320)
All family life is a “shepherding” in mercy.  (#322)
No family drops down from heaven perfectly formed; families need constantly to grow and mature in the ability to love.  (#325)
