The parish would like to recognize Joe Agnello
who has been taking charge of the BINGO fundraiser for many years.
It's only recently that the Knights of Columbus started helping Joe
who has been running BINGO single-handedly.
Saint Augustine Parish would like to let Joe Agnello know
how much his service and dedication are very much appreciated.
BINGO is held in the parish gymnasium every Friday evening from 6:30PM until 10:00PM. Only adults who are 18-years-old or older may be admitted to play. Sorry, no children are allowed on the premises.
If you were around St. Augustine's during the week of August 8th - 12th, you might have seen a large group of children running around, in bright yellow shirts, laughing, and singing!
We were blessed to have 90 children, ages 3 through 4th grade, join us to experience a fun week of Barnyard Roundup Vacation Bible School! The children had a full week of stories, crafts, games, snacks, and music while learning that Jesus cares, provides, leads, forgives, and that He is our Savior!
It was a tremendous program that could not have been done without the help of many people. We would like to thank the following people: Father Bill, Deacon Jim, Regina, Jason, Elaine Conover, Mike Fevola, Joy Vanadio, Rowena Hoblin, Monica Barbato, Kelly Gates, Debra Orlando, Dolores Treger, Maria Pederson, Colleen Murphy, Angela Barry, Stinsey Thengampallil, Nurse Mary, Elena Alvarez, Bridget DeSarlo, Adriana Barbato, Bella Orlando, Anthony Barbato, Emily Rooney, Cassandra Elias, Catherine Hoblin, Isabella Buchy, Christina Carrozza, Gregory Vanadio, Johnny, Stefania Giglio, Brynn Vitro, Dominic Procino, and Zachary Gates.
VBS 2016 was awesome! We hope that you plan to be with us in for VBS 2017.
ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE Program
In order to enhance better opportunities for citizens and
non-citizens alike to grow in their skills of reading, writing, and
speaking English, our parish started an eight week bi-weekly program of ESL in the parish learning center (formerly the parish school).
Thirteen volunteers from the parish committed their time and energy
to help our adults advance in their journey of becoming more knowledgeable in speaking and reading in English.
We are most grateful to both students and teachers for making this
such a successful program and
we look forward to continuing this program in the Fall.
