St. Augustine’s Free Lending Library

We need donations of books.  Any genre.  Children, youth, or adult.  About half of the initial supply of 50 donated books are now on loan to our church members.  Please speak to Phyllis or Susan if you have questions and bring the books to one of us to be stamped before they go on the rack.  📚📚📚

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.
