Here's the latest news from St. Austin Catholic Parish! 
The St. Austin community could not do what we do or be who we are without each of you! In gratitude for all of our many wonderful volunteers, our clergy will offer blessings for all of our volunteers during each Mass on the weekend of April 14-15 and are invited to join us for a reception in Hecker Hall after each Mass.
Do your gifts of time, talent and treasure 
honor God's abundant blessings in your life?
 
Our next stewardship pledge year begins May 1, 2018 and runs through April 30, 2019. THANK YOU to those who have already completed and returned a pledge form. If you still need a form, you can download one from our website or pick one up from the blue folders in the pews at all Masses this weekend.

In the next couple of weeks, families may receive a gentle reminder call from a parish volunteer. If you already feel confident in your family's pledge amount, please go ahead and turn in a form now so we can remove you from the call list. Thanks!
