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.

Which crosses in your life do you find especially heavy? What or who helps you bear them?
When you have something hard to do, what or who helps you get through it?
“Yet it must also be recognized that nuclear energy, bio-technology, information technology, Knowledge of our DNA, and many other abilities which we have acquired, have given us tremendous power. More precisely, they have given those with the knowledge, and especially the economic resources to use them an impressive dominance over the whole of humanity and the entire world….WE NEED BUT THINK OF THE NUCLEAR BOMBS DROPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY..TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DEADLY ARSENAL OF WEAPONS AVAILABLE FOR MODERN WARFARE.IT
IS EXTREMELY RISKY FOR A SMALL PART OF HUMANITY TO HAVE [such power]”
