The beautiful and dynamic Ms. Arlene Melillo led the Parish Council as its president for two terms, a total of six years. Many new ministries have been added to the parish as well as wonderful changes at Saint Augustine Church took place during her leadership. Unfortunately, her term of office has ended, and it is time for her to pass on the torch. Thank you, Arlene,
for your hard work and dedication to Saint Augustine Parish.
We would like to congratulate the new Parish Council president,
Mr. Donald Mackenzie, who was the previous vice-president of the council, a grand knight of the Knights of Columbus/St. Augustine Council, and an extremely active proponent of all improvements done regarding our church facilities and grounds. May the Holy Spirit bless you as you take on this important position of leadership in our parish.

St. Augustine held it's very first Strawberry Fest after the 12:00 PM Mass on Sunday, June 12th. Several parishioners who are artists displayed their artwork for sale in the church. Father Bill thought that it would be nice to welcome Summer with an assortment of fresh strawberry treats: chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry ice cream, strawberry shortcake, and even strawberry lemonade. All the parishioners that attended the noon Mass left very happy with these delicious treats in their bellies! Yummy!
