Welcome to St. Augustine's!
The first thing you can expect as a visitor to St. A's is that you will be made welcome here. As a community, we value fellowship with each other across generations, vibrant worship, and commitment to Christian outreach in our community, country and world.
When you join us for worship, know that everyone is welcome to receive the bread and wine that are blessed at Communion. Whether you worship regularly or rarely, whether you are baptized or not, you are welcome at our table.
Would you like to know more about life in the church? Please contact our Rector, Kristin White, by email or by calling the parish office (847-251-6922), or Carol Telling, who leads our newcomer ministries. You may also fill out our online Newcomer Card below.
What can you expect once you contact us? One of us will reach out to you right away with an invitation to meet for coffee and talk more. You may find a loaf of bread delivered to your doorstep. If it feels right to you to join the parish, you will be invited within a few months to a gathering to meet other new folks, as well as some who have been part of St. Augustine's for a while. A few days after that, you will be welcomed with other new members into the life of the church, complete with a festive reception.
We look forward to knowing you better, and to helping you feel at home.
