ST. AUGUSTINE PARISH NEWS

OCTOBER IS ROSARY MONTH

The month of October is dedicated to Mary, the mother Jesus. Starting Oct 1, each parish in our region will have the recitation of the rosary PRIOR to the beginning of Mass on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, St. Augustine will also have a 6:30pm Rosary recitation each Wednesday.

Pope Francis has launched a worldwide campaign to encourage greater prayer and action for migrants, titled Share the Journey. Locally, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr has expressed his solidarity with local immigrants. Joining with other dioceses and partners throughout Ohio, he is calling for 10,000 letters to Congress for a pathway to residency for young immigrants protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. Hard copies of a letter template are on the table at the back of the church. Please leave your signed letters at the table
