Saints of the Week:

August 28th. St Augustine 13 November 354 – 28 August 430 was an early Christian theologian and philosopher whose writings influenced the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was the bishop of Hippo Regius in north Africa and is viewed as one of the most important Church Fathers in Western Christianity for his writings in the Patristic Era. Among his most important works are The City of God and Confessions.


August 29th. St. john the Baptist was imprisoned and decapitated by Herod for his heroic witness to the truth, thereby, becoming the precursor of the Lord’s own violent death, as he had been in his remarkable birth and prophetic preaching.


Special Collection: There is a special collection today for the African Missions and Holy Places.


May God bless you and your loved ones.                                      Fr. Brian
