Our Mission

As members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, we, the faithful of the Roman Catholic Community of St. Augustine, strive to live in the Spirit of the Risen Christ. As stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us, we pledge ourselves to the most responsible and just use of our time, talents and treasure. We commit ourselves to participate in the building of God's Kingdom by:

  1. Proclaiming Jesus Christ's universal message of salvation through faith formation, sacramental preparation, Bible study and personal witness.
  2. Responding to the call to holiness by participating in the sacramental life of the parish, especially in the Eucharist and Reconciliation.
  3. Providing for and participating in the on-going spiritual programs and prayer life offered for personal and community growth.
  4. Imitating the example of faithful discipleship as lived out by the saints, especially Mary, the Mother of God and St. Augustine, our patron.
  5. Promoting and supporting parish unity by welcoming people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds through participation and shared responsibility in the life of the parish.
  6. Reaching out and welcoming members of other religious beliefs as well as non-believers by respectful mutual understanding, prayer and shared projects.
  7. Honoring the Church's preferential option for the poor through works of charity and justice.
