Our Services

What are services like?
Masses are typically about an hour long. Each Mass is a traditional Catholic Mass and includes music. The 11am Mass on Sundays is largely a Filipino community and the 7pm Mass on Sundays is largely a young adult community. The 5:15pm on Saturdays and 9am on Sundays tend to be slightly more diverse in age and often have young families.

What is the community like?
St. Augustine's is a community that is based in the Augustinian tradition, which stresses the importance of being in relationship. Our community welcomes people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, etc. We have an ever growing young adult community, a large Filipino community, which has been at the parish for years and a diverse group of others who have made St. Augustine's their home.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are still welcome here! Everyone is welcome to worship at St. Augustine's and the priests are always available to speak with after Mass if you have any questions or concerns about feeling comfortable in our parish community.

  • The 11Am mass has a generous amount of Filipino worshippers. Their mass has one of the happiest congregations and liturgy I've experienced in all of my travels. At the 7Pm Mass you may be invited for evening prayer after conclusion especially during Easter Holy Week when some services are later in the evening. Beautiful historic building with its own amazing history. This is not my Parish but if I lived nearby it surly would be. I love my visits there, so given the chance stop in for a prayer or Mass on Sat/ Sun. God Bless!!
