Dear Parishioners,

I recently received the great news that Saint Augustine’s surpassed our parish goal of $180,000 set by the diocese for the 2017 Catholic Charity Appeal. The actual amount raised here was $189,422.73… absolutely amazing!!! This is a tremendous achievement made possible only by the generosity, prayer, time and effort of many people. I am deeply grateful to our donors and collectors for their sacrifice and service. Special note of thanks to Mary Lou and Maurice Trottier, our “dynamic duo” chairpersons, whose dedication and diligence ensures a successful appeal year after year. May the Lord continue to bless this wonderful parish community for the goodness demonstrated. In the name of all those served by the 39 diocesan ministries funded through the Catholic Charity Appeal…THANK YOU!

A Successful First Annual Saint Augustine School Alumnight!

Earlier this month, the Saint Augustine Alumni Association held a fun, nostalgic event at Pancho O’Malley’s in Narragansett for S. A.G. A. (St. Augustine Guardian Angel), a scholarship fund to benefit our current St. Augustine School students in need of tuition assistance. Ticket sales, raffle items and sponsors helped to realize a profit of approximately $6700.00 from this one evening! We are ever grateful to all our donors and all the alumni who helped plan and coordinate this special event, including Kathleen Reall Ryan ‘79, Ellen Andrews Manocchia ‘79 and Mark Manocchia ’79 and  helpers who made it such a great success.

 Grand Piano News

As announced last week at Mass, we have a rare opportunity to obtain a beautiful, “used” Kawai 5’10” Grand Piano for our music ministry here in church. Stephen Romano, our Liturgical Music Director, has seen and played this piano and assures me of its top-notch condition and quality. The piano would be located in the loft with the choir and organ. It would enhance our worship and expand our music ministry. If anyone, would like to make a monetary donation toward the expense or a memorial gift, please contact Fr. Forcier or Stephen Romano. We are hoping to raise $5,000. Time is of the essence as the seller is motivated for the right buyer!!!

 Have a blessed week as we welcome the month of August!

 

Father Forcier
