A Letter from Our Pastor


Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Augustine Parish,

In the late 1960s when the first parishioners dreamed of building a church on the hill, no one envisioned that this will be the biggest parish in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Through the years, St. Augustine Catholic Church has been a “spiritual home” to many.

Like those parishioners 47 years ago, we, are called to be good stewards. We are called to maintain, upkeep, and leave the church in a better condition for future generations of worshippers. And so we have.

Only by the Grace of God, your humbling generosity, and the blessing of the Archdiocese, were we able to move forward with this project. As you know, it was necessary to incur new debt in order to begin the renovations; no doubt God will provide as He always has through the years.

Today, as of this writing, our entire parish eagerly awaits the blessing of the newly renovated church and consecration of the new altar. I look forward to seeing all of you on Saturday, August 26th at the 4:30 PM Mass.

So long tent...

No longer will we have to withstand the blasting noise of airplanes; of cars driving by; the strong and cold winds; or the flapping of the tent "walls". Nor will parishioners have to choose between attending Mass in the tent or the parish hall. Yet as uncomfortable as it has been over the past few months; I felt closer to parishioners than I ever have before. Truly, God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.

In gratitude to God and the Parish Community, I remain,

Fr. Rene Ramoso
August 19, 2017

Own a copy of our parish's book!
OUR STORY journals the parish-life of parishioners (pictured below) who graciously agreed to share their journey of faith at St. Augustine.

The book's format was inspired by the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul series. It is a compilation of 59 short stories about how the church started, how parishioners became involved and is a true legacy of faith for generations to come.

Stories were submitted by current and former parishioners of all ages. The book includes contributions from Fr. Rene Ramoso, Fr. Ed Dura, Fr. Eugene Tungol, and Sr. Nona Barairo. The book was officially launched on Sunday, May 1, 2016.

Copies are available for purchase from our parish office (650) 873-2282 or our religious education/faith formation office (650) 873-2878.

All proceeds will benefit the Sanctuary Renovation Project.
Thank you and God bless you for your support!

St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo
and "Doctor of the Church"

Our Patron Saint is accepted by most scholars to be the most important figure in the ancient Western church. After a rather unremarkable childhood, marred only by a case of stealing pears, Augustine drifted through several
philosophical systems before converting
to Christianity at the age of thirty-one. Read more

Daily Offering Prayer
God, our Father, I offer You my day. I offer You my prayers, thoughts, words, actions, joys, and sufferings in union with the Heart of Jesus, who continues to offer Himself in the Eucharist for the salvation of the world. May the Holy Spirit, Who guided Jesus, be my guide and my strength today so that I may witness to your love. With Mary, the mother of our Lord and the Church, I pray for all Apostles of Prayer and for the prayer intentions proposed by the Holy Father this month. Amen.

"I've left many times – physically - but emotionally, St. Augustine and the St. Augustine Youth Group (SAYG) is always home, and will always be where I find myself.

Our youth program, SAYG, has become known near and far as an amazing and talented group of believers. As the 5th generation youth minister, I was blessed to continue that legacy, and am now very proud to witness later generations grow and live the same faith that I so dearly cling to.

Say what? SAYG!

Where it all started, and where it continues."

Excerpt from SAY WHAT? SAYG! written by Arthur Refuerzo page 183

Copies of the paperback are available at the Parish Office and the Religious Education Office. All proceeds of your donation will benefit our parish's Sanctuary Renovation Project. Call (650) 873-2282 for information. God bless you for your support!
