A Second Collection this Weekend

This weekend St. Augustine will be holding a special second collection that was not announced until after our bulletin had been printed.
The second collection will be taken to provide humanitarian relief and pastoral support for our affected brothers and sisters in the Middle East.
The funds will be sent to Catholic Relief Services and will be used by them and other Catholic agencies working in partnership with the local Church to meet the most urgent needs facing people in Iraq, Gaza, Syria, and surrounding countries where refugees have fled.
 
Please be generous.
 
Cash and checks will be accepted. Please make checks payable to St. Augustine with “Middle East” in the Memo line.

 

Something New for High Schoolers!

We wanted to design something special just for our young adults and that’s why St. Augustine is VERY excited to announce our newest opportunity for high schoolers.
Fr. David and Fr. Glaros are hosting a special event called Building on the Rock that will meet on Sunday mornings from 9AM – 10:15AM in Room 101 in the school.
This event is open to all students in 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.
While preparing to face the challenges of the real world it is important to remember that everything comes from (and can be built on) the Rock — Jesus.
We certainly hope that the high schoolers of our Parish will make it a priority to come.
The first date is Sunday, September 14th @ 9AM.

What A Wonderful Picnic

It’s official! The Parish’s Biggest Party is over and it was a wonderful time.  As we recuperate and collect all of the pictures we want to encourage you to keep an eye on the website as we will post a video of all the fun we had.

If you allowed us to borrow anything of yours, corn hole games, pop-up tents, etc.. they can be picked up from the Rectory during regular business hours (and we thank you).

As always, we hope you had a wonderful time…see you next year!
