Welcome to St. Augustine's
Our congregation prides itself on its open and friendly spirit. We are a loving, welcoming and inclusive community that has a rich history of hospitality and openness. We welcome all God's people regardless of race, background, or sexual orientation. St. Augustine's offers a variety of ways to live out our faith in Jesus Christ. Whether joined in worship, outreach, Christian Education, or in social activities, we seek to be aware of Christ's presence. We invite you to join us and share in our joy. The activities within our church community are many and various.

We hold generally liberal views on social issues. We have experienced substantial growth over the past decade, which has brought many families with young children to our parish. Our children are a priority as shown by our active youth group, Sunday school and special children's services. We have a dedicated core of people who have seen St. Augustine's through times of joy and struggle over many years. We celebrate a joyful faith in our worship. There is a high level of participation and engagement in parish activities. We have a strong foundation of lay leadership. St. Augustine's has an informal, family feeling. We are a community that values and responds to sermons and that sees them as a valuable resource for our faith. We are proud of our Episcopal identity. We are grateful for the saving grace of a sense of humor.

Joining the Church
St. Augustine's welcomes those from any faith tradition who are seeking a church home. If you are already an Episcopalian, you can write to your former parish for a formal "letter of transfer." For non-Episcopalians, the usual way to formally join our church is to be confirmed or received by one of our Bishops. If you are not ready for this formal step, please know that you are welcome to be a part of our church community.

Parish activities

June festival- during the first weekend in June, we enjoy our June festival in conjunction with the festival in the village of Croton. Booths for games, food, crafts, etc. are set up and the proceeds from them provide a valuable source of financial support for our ministry.

Youth Council, trips and activities - our Youth Council supports the community through volunteer actions, provides support for the church family by providing energy and muscle when required, but most importantly by sharing in the joy of Christ and life with each other. Youth Council is co-ordinated by Mary Ellen O'Neill.

The Choir is coordinated by our Organist Laura Ravotti and rehearses each Sunday morning from September-June for performance at 9:00 AM services. Members of the choir perform other musical offerings, such as solos and duets, at the 10:30 AM service.

Liturgical Guilds: The Flower Guild, the Altar Guild, the Acolytes, and Lay Eucharistic Ministers help coordinate our services.

Lay Eucharistic ministry for the ill or shut-in - when members of the parish are unable to attend church services, lay ministers administer the sacrament in that members home, hospital or care facility.

Outreach Committee -- The outreach committee is charged with identifying and developing partnerships and support for individuals and organizations in need. If you would like to join in this important effort, contact Ty West or Ed Godek.
