“Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”

― Augustine of Hippo, Confessions




The mission of the St. Augustine’s Religious Education Program is to assist all of our people, families and individuals in our community, to come to the knowledge, love and service of approaching God and his Church.  As described by St. Augustine, our patron saint, our restless hearts are guided by Jesus Christ and His Church, through prayer, the sacraments, and embracing the teachings of the Catholic Church.
