Saint Augustine Parish is a worshiping community that enthusiastically manifests faith through action, with open arms for all of God's children.
We live God's Word and continue His Work.
Welcome to our website! Please enjoy your visit with us.
Spending time in prayer is the most important part of being a good steward. When our relationship with God is strong, we are much better able to use our gifts, talents and resources to help the Church and those around us. Those who live a stewardship-way-of-life, find it easy to give God the “first fruits” of their time, talent, and treasure.
Here at St. Augustine, Stewardship is about far more than money.
Our Stewardship Renewal is a time, above all, to make God the number one priority in our lives. Our goal is for each of us to use our gifts and skills in the service of others. More than anything, Stewardship Renewal is a time for conversion of heart.
It is our desire to live God’s Word and continue His works, by sharing God’s warmth with everyone who comes through this website and everyone who walks through our doors.

Prayer of Pope Francis for the Jubilee Year of Mercy
Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us,
the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman: “If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with His anointing,
so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,
and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy;
you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

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.

Join us in prayer for the intentions entrusted to us by Pope Francis. For September 2016, we join the Holy Father in praying: That each may contribute to the common good and to the building of a society that places the human person at the center. Amen.
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.
Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship
"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern." - Pope Francis, 9/16/13 Read more
“Thus the Jubilee will be celebrated both in Rome and in the Particular Churches as a visible sign of the Church’s universal communion.”
