Project Life and Liberty Campaign is underway. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has requested that parishes conduct this postcard campaign by the end of April. This postcard signing initiative supports and strengthens laws that (1) prevent federal funding and promotion of abortion, and (2) protect rights of conscience in health care.

Help with the religious ed program

A Word from our Ministry Team
We have many things to be thankful for as we wrap up another successful academic year, and today we are especially thankful for our mothers as we celebrate Mother's Day. We offer prayers for our mothers, living and deceased, for our spiritual mothers and for those who have shown us a mother's love. We also ask for our Blessed Mother's intercession to shower graces upon us and as our mother, bring us closer to her son, Jesus. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Is God calling you to share your faith with our teenagers or to teach the stories of our faith to children? If you are looking for a new way to get involved at St. Austin, consider becoming a catechist for children or youth in Religious Education. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, learn more about our Catholic faith, and serve our parish community. For more information and to find out what it takes to be a catechist (By the way, we LOVE experience, but it’s not required!), contact Marti Salas at
