A note from our Pastor, Father Augustine Joseph
We are in difficult and uncertain times. Everyone is affected in one way or another. So far, St. Augustine’s has been able to pay all of our employees their full salaries although some are not able to work their full hours. However, there has been a 40% decline in the parish income from Sunday collections since the beginning of the pandemic. We want to thank all of those who are generously contributing to the Parish.
I want to thank specially those who give electronically. Others, who use envelopes, kindly mail in your contributions. Thanks to all who are already giving (electronically or through envelopes) in a spirit of stewardship. May God reward your generosity. I invite all of those who are able to, please contribute to make up for our lost income.
If anyone would like to contribute through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), kindly contact Linda at (510) 653-8631 for additional information. You are also invited to donate through PayPal. You can make individual contributions or on a recurring basis. Please see the information below.
