Michael Vujas from The Catholic Cemeteries Association will visit St. Augustine Church on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, from 7-8pm in the school cafeteria to answer questions about funeral costs in a presentation called “A Final Gift”. Did you know funeral costs have become the third largest expense most families will pay for in their lifetime? Important information you need to know about: The Vigil, Funeral Mass, Rite of Committal, and the costs incurred during this time will be discussed. Whether for ourselves or someone we love and care about, the final gift is an act of grace — peace of mind is a precious gift. Please consider attending and contact the Rectory with any questions.
Just an update on what is happening at our school!
St. Augustine School currently has 238 students enrolled in thirteen classrooms. While not a huge jump from last year’s enrollment, this increase of students is reflected primarily in kindergarten, where we have two classrooms for the first time since 2006. Joining the excellent staff are three new teachers. Mrs. Marissa Cole is teaching fifth through eighth grade math and seventh grade social studies. Mr. Derek Anders, a graduate of St. Augustine School, is teaching physical education. Miss Natalie Cook, also a graduate of St. Augustine School, is teaching kindergarten. We are excited to share God’s word with our students this school year as we also learn our multiplication facts and how to tie our shoes.
Everyone had such a wonderful time at our Hoe Down! Take a second to look back on all the fun we had! (We already can’t wait till next year!)
