Our Social Justice programs continue including the Society of St. Vincent de Paul food donation and assistance and our parish’s participation in the One Heart Lent Program.
Mass Intentions – those who have scheduled Mass intentions through Easter, please contact the parish office to re-schedule.
Religious Education classes continue and are being coordinated remotely – the Director of Religious Education is in contact with families regarding completion of classes.
As always, we are very grateful to minister to such a generous and compassionate community. You truly are the Body of Christ made present on earth. Though none of us know how the weeks and months ahead will unfold, your St. Augustine clergy and staff remain committed to serving you. The church remains open for personal prayer and our staff is working remotely but only an email or phone call away. For specific contact info with staff members, visit our staff directory
