Message to St. Augustine Parish

The following message was read on behalf of Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone at the 9:00 a.m. Mass at St. Augustine Church on Sunday, February 4, 2024.

The St. Augustine parish community has been in my prayers this week as it recovers from the shooting on Tuesday. 

We thank the police and other first responders for their swift action to keep our community safe. We also thank God that no one was injured following this senseless act of violence. 

Our wonderful priests at St. Augustine have encouraged parishioners to pray for the safety, peace, and security at St. Augustine Catholic Church and at all places of worship. I’m grateful for their leadership.

The St. Augustine parish community will continue to be in my prayers.
