This Sunday, we welcome Bishop Boniface Kwangu from Tanzania to St. Augustine's to preach and celebrate the Eucharist. Below is a portion of Bishop's biography. Welcome, Bishop Boniface!
I committed my life fully to the Lordship of Christ early in 1987 while I was working as a secondary school teacher. Then after some time I even felt a special call to serve Him when I therefore went to attend some seminary training for three years after which I was then ordained priest early in 1991. After my ordination, I served in a parish for about two years and then I went for further theological training in the UK for two more years after which I was then sent to teach at the provincial seminary where I was even later appointed to be principal for some time. Again in Nov. 2007 I was then consecrated to serve as a Diocesan bishop in one of the Dioceses in the Anglican church of Tanzania where I then served until December last year when I retired from the Diocese. Therefore I am now just serving freely in various ministries wherever I am invited to assist. Otherwise I just thank God that has blessed me in many ways since I offered myself for His service. Thanks even for inviting me to share with you here at your church. Blessings.

Walk for Life in Columbus on July 21st is sponsored by Pregnancy Decision Health Centers (PDHC).  The Columbus walk will be held along the Scioto Mile at Audubon Metro Park. The event will be very family-friendly with lots of activities and fun for the whole family. This will be a great opportunity for youth and church groups to make a significant community impact for life. 

Bob and Beth are participating in this event. Here is more news from Beth about how to sign up:

Here is the link for the Walk for Life. Bob and I will be walking in the Columbus event on Saturday July 21 at 9:00 a.m. I have set up my account as the liaison for the "St. Augustine's Church Team". I did add our church to the sign-up process!

Let's Walk!!!

Starting Sunday, June 17,  we are going to have  play time for the bigger kiddies along with some informal bible teaching during worship . Children will be  dismissed after the Collect of the Day and return for the eucharist, just like they were for Godly Play Participation is voluntary and contingent on parental permission Fathers Gatwood, Madanu, and Christopher Simei will coordinate and supervise. Thank you for doing this for our young people (and  don’t hurt yourselves )!
Dr. Falor is in charge of fund raising ideas for the capital drive. He asks that you please send any idea for fund raisers to him  by clicking here . Keep in mind your ideas should be geared to things that non-members might be willing to come to, e.g., a wine tasting sponsored by St. Augustine’s. So put your creative thinking caps on and email Dr. Falor your ideas.

Speaking of Dr. Falor, he has asked that every one of us download the HQ Live app from either Apple’s App Store for iPhone or Google’s Play Store (or whatever it’s called that loser Android users go to). For the Apple App Store the link is  The idea is for us as a parish to play trivia together with the potential to win a lot of money that we can then donate to the capital fund. Download the app and you’ll see what he’s talking about.  Email Dr. Falor with any questions .

As you keep our young people in your prayers, consider participating in a new ministry we are going to begin no later than the fall. It’s called Engage and you can read a quick description about it  here . Engage pairs adults with youth to read the Bible one on one, talk about it what you’ve read/what it means for you, and to pray together. This is a great chance to develop significant new relationships as you participate in an important new ministry for the life and health of our parish and to see first-hand the power of God’s word at work.
