About Us

St. Augustine's is a liturgical and sacramental faith community that’s grounded in catholic tradition and committed to progressive, reformed thought and action. This means our worship is guided by ancient practice but our beliefs aren’t stuck there.

St. A’s was founded in 1961 as a racially integrated and economically diverse congregation and this heritage continues to guide our Christian understanding of invitation, hospitality, and inclusion. We welcome all people regardless of ability, age, ethnicity, gender, marital status, nationality, race, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status into the life and ministry of the church.

Join us for Holy Eucharist every Sunday at 10:00 AM and Wednesday at 6:15 pm. Help out in our Food Pantry the second and fourth Monday of every month. Find us on Union Street, just south of Napier Avenue in Benton Harbor.

Inclusion

We are a "Believe Out Loud" congregation - openly and intentionally welcoming our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender sisters and brothers into the life and ministry of the parish.

Mass Underground

Our Wednesday evening Eucharist is in the parish hall. We discuss the gospel reading for the coming Sunday in this relaxed setting.

Mass Underground, Wednesdays at 6:15 pm.

Kid’s Mass

At Kids’ Mass, our children pre-school age on up co-preside with the priest and perform all the liturgical ministries. It’s how we recognize the full stature of children in the life and ministry of the church. While the children co-presiding this morning have practiced their ministries, we welcome and encourage all kids to join us the first Sunday of the month, as we believe children have an instinctive sense of the sacred and most learn quickly by imitating others.
