Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a spiritual environment and resources where people may gather to hear the Word proclaimed. We celebrate the Eucharist, the sacraments, and provide the members of all ages the opportunity to grow in the practice of their faith, learning how to fully keep God's commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor.

Message from Our Pastor

Dear Parishioners,

St. Augustine and St. Joseph have many years of history and tradition. They are very vibrant and amazing parishes where everyone is warmly welcomed. We are a community, and you will find parishioners and staff to be very cordial, friendly, and hospitable. We seek to be family, disciples, servants, and friends to all who gather to celebrate the Word of God and Precious Blood that brings all people near.

Here you will find a Parish Cluster that gives importance to prayer, service, hospitality, and community building. We have numerous ministries, groups and organizations that are very active in the Parish. Our School of Religious Education continues to impart quality Catholic education. Enriching faith formation programs are offered to children, young and old alike. Our well-planned and prepared liturgy is at the center of our parish life.

If you are new to the area, we warmly welcome you to our wonderful Parish Cluster. If you are part of St. Augustine/St. Joseph Cluster, I thank you for your excellent spirit and collaboration in making our parishes so very alive. I am very happy to be part of this family. May Christ be alive always in our hearts.

With Blessings, 
Fr. Frankline Rayappa. C.PP.S
