 January 5th The Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross

On Saturday, January 5th at 11 am St Augustine is hosting the SCHC admission of Anne. The Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross is a diverse set of over 800 women with whom the Episcopal Church is associated. Companions are called to live under a rule of intercessory prayer, thanksgiving, and simplicity of life, to live a life of obedience to Christ in the company of others.

Columbarium  at St Augustine's

 

Many have expressed the idea that a Columbarium be placed in the Memorial Garden which is to the left side of the church. A Columbarium is a wall which has niches in which the funeral urns of a loved one can be placed.  If you would like to be part of the committee to plan this effort, please see Fr. Thornell or call the office and leave your name.
