A Letter from Our Pastor


Dear Parishioners,

On Monday, February 6, 2017, the church building will be closed for renovation (removal of the hanging ceiling and pews, reconfiguration of the nave space, aisles, ceiling wirings, sprinkler system) and construction of a new altar.

While the parish community may have to undergo a little inconvenience from the routine, I ask that we all be mindful of temporary changes such as the following:

  • No exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Fridays.
  • Pre-baptismal classes will be held in the chapel.
  • Mass intentions offered in the afternoon of Monday, Wednesday and Thursday during the renovation will be offered in the morning of that particular day. Meaning, if you offered a mass on Monday afternoon at 5:30pm, it will be offered at the 8:40 am mass of that Monday, instead.
  • Funerals and baptisms will be celebrated in the tent.

Please be aware of entrances and exits during the renovation, as well as, allowed parking areas.

It is my hope and prayer that a little disruption and a few nuisances will not deter us from coming to St. Augustine Parish in the next few months. Rather, I pray, that we will walk together in seeing this project come to realization. It is a time to ask, “what can I contribute or offer?”

WE are the church and the “living temple” of Christ. We seek for a house of prayer that “must be expressive of God… (and) ...a sign of the pilgrim Church on earth and reflects the Church dwelling in heaven.” We seek and endeavor to improve our church building to be “suited to sacred celebrations, a resting place, a place of encounter with God, as well as a point of departure on the Church’s unfinished journey toward the reign of God.”

Let us, as one body, summon the Holy Spirit to fill us with grace and love in communion with God’s eternal plan at St. Augustine Parish.

Much love,

Fr. Rene Ramoso

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.
