A Daily Gospel Reflection

"Amen I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

The phone rang in a local church. The voice on the other end asked if a famous actor who was visiting Des Moines over the weekend would be at mass that Sunday. The pastor replied, "I'm not sure what his plans are for this Sunday, but I do know that Jesus intends to be here."

An occupational hazard of church-going Christians is to tend to forget that each time we gather in the name of Jesus, Jesus gathers with us. He gathers with us just as certainly and personally as he gathered with his disciples in his lifetime.

This is the great mystery that takes place each time we gather in the Lord's name at the Lord's table to hear the Lord's word and eat the Lord's Supper.

Have we ever experienced Jesus' presence while at prayer with others?

Jesus said to his disciples, "I will be with you always." Matthew 28:20

Hello St. Augustin Parishioners!
These past few months have been challenging to say the least. As we start to gather in community again, we want to offer you an opportunity to become part of a small faith-sharing community within St. Augustin Parish.
On Saturday August 29th, we are going to kick-off a new program called “City of God” prayer groups at Augustin Parish. The goal of “City of God” is to form small Catholic study groups of 5-8 people. We hope that these groups will enable you to grow closer to Christ through prayer, reading, discussion, and fellowship. Read the full invitation HERE. Sign Up HERE.
Please join us for a ZOOM call to get your family talking at home! Register HERE. Sign up for the grade session closest to your child’s age (i.e. 2nd graders can participate in 1st or 3rd grade session). 

Two sessions are available to fit your family’s needs and schedules!
