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

On weekends and Holy Days, all parking spaces in our parking garage at 500 W. MLK, Jr. Blvd. are available for parishioners regardless of the "Reserved for..." signs posted in any particular parking space.  
 

On week days, parking under the gym is available to parishioners and guests ONLY AFTER 6 p.m. This area is for staff parking only Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Visitors must park around the blacktop or in the garage during the day. If you park in the garage to attend to parish business, our receptionist can give you tokens to exit free of charge.  

 

Parking in any space marked for PRIEST PARKING is prohibited at all times. Since our rectory does not have its own driveway or garage, parking in their marked spaces is like a neighbor parking in your driveway without your permission! 

Catholic Services Appeal This Weekend

Each year, our bishop asks every one of us to make a commitment to support the work of our diocesan programs and ministries through the Catholic Services Appeal. By sharing the gifts God has granted us, we can work together to care for the Church. Please experience the joy of giving and join us as we work to continue Christ's work of spirituality, charity and education. For more information or to donate online, visit www.austindiocese.org/csa.
