Educating all our children for lifelong, faithful, participating membership in St. Augustine Parish.
St. Augustine School (Grades Pre K-8)
St. Augustine School educates children from kindergarten through the eighth grade. Operated as a ministry of St. Augustine Parish and the Diocese of
Toledo, the school serves the children of the parish. St. Augustine School also accepts children from adjacent parishes without Catholic schools and non-Catholic children whose parents want to
provide a value-based education for their children.
St. Augustine School emphasizes Catholic values throughout the curriculum with service projects, local and global mission efforts, and liturgical planning and participation.
Parish Religion Program (Grades 1-8)
Sunday morning, 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. during school year
Catholic students not attending St. Augustine School are invited to faith formation classes held on Sunday mornings between services. Students in
grades one through eight are welcome. This program runs from September until mid-May following the school calendar. The curriculum for the Toledo Diocese is followed. Catechists pursue a Diocesan
Religion Certificate through participation in religion workshops. There are several special liturgical seasonal activities during the year.
Children in each grade perform service activities to reach out and help in the parish and in the world. The program happily accepts parishioners (adults and high school students) who would like to help with this ministry.
Mission of St. Augustine PRP: “We are called to share our faith with our children. We are challenged to be Christian witnesses. We acknowledge our own limitations and failures. We celebrate our life with Jesus.”
LifeTeen (High School Youth)
Life Teen meets every other Sunday at 5:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall during the school year.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for the Junior High and High School students of the parish to share and grow in their faith through meetings that deal with their needs, as well as to facilitate their participation in the faith life of the parish community. We encourage all Junior High and High School students to join us.
Preschool-age children are dismissed from the service during Sunday 10:30 mass and go downstairs to the parish hall to learn about Jesus and his church.
Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
Class schedule may change yearly, depending on the participants' schedules.
This process welcomes those individuals unbaptized or Christian baptized who wish to explore and perhaps join the Catholic faith. This initiation process is also for Roman Catholics wishing to be in full communion with the Church. This program begins in October and continues throughout the year with weekly meetings. Various topics are discussed. A text is used as the basic faith information element. RCIA relies on speakers, videos, presentations, prayer reflections, retreats, Scripture and faith sharing to study and experience the Catholic faith. Celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation occurs during the Easter Vigil.
