COVID has prevented us from having our traditional in person Lenten parish mission this year.
St. Augustine's Church is offering a special Lenten Parish Mission podcast hosted by Father J. Roger McGuinness!
Fr. J. Roger McGuinness has been a priest of the Diocese of Ogdensburg for over 50 years. He has been a pastor, seminary and university professor, retreat master, college chaplain and vocation director. Now retired from active ministry he continues to write and give spiritual direction.
Fr. Roger will be leading us in a Lenten mission featuring weekly reflections on the Sunday gospel readings. He will also offer a special reflection on the life of St. Joseph on March 19th, the Feast of St. Joseph.
The podcast can be found at his website
It can also be found at Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify. The first episode will be available on February 16th.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament:
Jesus calls to you: "Could you not watch one hour with Me?"
"In this silence of the white host, carried in the monstrance, are all His words; there is his whole life given in offering to the Father for each of us; there is also the glory of the Glorified Body, which started with the resurrection, and still continues in heavenly union."
[Pope John Paul II, Angelus Address]
"What will convert America and save the world? My answer is prayer. What we need is for every Parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in Holy Hours of Prayer."
~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Adoration is held each Friday beginning directly after morning Mass and closing with Benediction at 7:00 p.m. Please join us and strengthen your relationship with Christ Jesus and simply sit in reverence with our Lord.
