Thank you for visiting our website!


Here you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need.

St. Augustine Parish offers a style of worship that incorporates traditional Catholic music along with spirituals and contemporary Gospel music from the African American community.  A "Children's Church" for pre-school through high school is also available at the 10:00 Mass on Sunday.  Children are dismissed after the opening prayer for directed reflection on the Word of God that is age appropriate and they return to their families at Preparation time.

If you are considering relocating to our area, we would love to have you be our guest.

When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age
  • A corporate outlet for truth-filled and moving praise and worship

 

In His Care,
Father Carroll
