Adult education is a high value at St. Augustine parish and is offered in a variety of ways.

St. Augustine Parish staff provides occasional daytime and evening events focused on a variety of topics. In the past these have included, among others, inter-faith dialogue, exploration of the theological basis for social justice ministries, exploration of the writings of Pope Francis. Sometimes interns from the doctoral program at the Jesuit School of Theology offer adult formation events related to their studies. Consult the parish calendar or bulletin for scheduled events.
