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.
