Here's the latest news from St. Austin Catholic Parish! 


Due to construction, our 5:20 p.m. Daily Mass on Monday-Thursday is on hiatus. There will be no 5:20 p.m. Daily Mass until Tue., Sep. 5, 2017. Thank you for your understanding.

More stone from the facade of the church will be available for pick up this weekend! Stop by Saturday afternoon or on Sunday to get your own piece of St. Austin. Look for the pallets by the pecan tree. Please be careful--the stone is heavy! But larger pieces should break easily into manageable sizes.
