Saint Augustine's identifies itself as an "open church."

By this we mean that all persons are welcome to come and be part of this community wherever they are in their spiritual journey. We seek to be a safe place for skeptics and doubters as well as for convicted believers.

We are an inclusive church in which people from many backgrounds have found common ground. We are a diverse community which discovered in God a oneness greater in significance than our differences. We have come to know that our variety, in truth, reflects the divine comprehensiveness of the God of all created things.

    In Christ,

    from The Rev. Nate Rugh and the Vestry at St. A's

What's Going On...

Meet and Welcome Rev. Katie Cadigan, our new Associate Rector.  Katie will be our celebrant/preacher on her first Sunday at St. A's on October 19th.  Please help welcome her by joining us for lunch after the 10:30 a.m. service.

St. A's "Home For Good" Fundraiser:  4:00 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 19th - to benefit the United Fund charity Home for Good, focusing on homeless veterans.  The show ill be a 75 minute musical review, with performances by singers, groups, instrumentalists and information about the issue of veteran homelessness.  L.A. County has the largest number (6,000+) of homeless veterans in the U.S.  There is a $20/person suggested donation at the door and reception to follow. 

Inquirer's Class:  Are you interested in becoming a member of St. Augustine's?  Are you interested in being confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church?  Are you curious about deepening your faith and your journey with God? Or just looking for a refresher?  If so, then you should consider taking the 2014 Fall Inquirer's Class.  We will meet on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:05 from Oct. 26th through November 30th in the Sts. Francis & Clare room.  Please sign-up on the patio if you are interested in taking the class.  If you have questions, contact Fr. Nate at

CLUE-LA:  is a group of clergy and laity from diverse religious traditions and backgrounds uniting for the cause of promoting social justice.  On Sunday, November 9th, from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. in the Community Room at Reed Park (Lincoln & California), CLUE will be sponsoring a program called Faith in Justice that will be both an exploration of how different religious traditions approach issues of justice and a chance to learn more about CLUE.  Fr. Nate will be one of the presenters.  The event is free and food will be provided. 

Please support St. A's outreach ministry through SPY (Safe Place for Youth):  St. A's has committed to SPY to feed what has grown to 70-80 homeless kids one Thursday dinner per month. 

The next scheduled dinner is November 13, 2014.

We would love to have your participation in one of two ways.  One Wednesday evening per month we prepare the dinner in the parish kitchen which is a lot of fun and good fellowship.  We need cooks but more importantly, shoppers to purchase the dinner ingredients.  We have created "shopping bags" of ingredients for varying budgets.  If you would like to participate and are not on the monthly email list, you can contact Mindy Staley at

You can provide financial support for this program by making out your check to St. Augustine church, with "SPY" on the memo/subject line.

The Centering Prayer Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. (for about 1 hour) in the Chapel, All are welcome; no previous experience needed.
