Faith Life

At Saint Augustine School, we have adopted the traditions our families and parent run board and practice the Catholic Faith as it has been practiced for centuries prior to Vatican II.

Mass is held monthly at our newly finished Chapel.

You may have heard this referenced as Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) or the Extraordinary form of the mass and you will no doubt notice differences from post Vatican II Novus Ordo Mass. These differences include:

  • The Priest faces the altar more specifically the Tabernacle, prior to the Second Vatican Counsel it was very important that the Priest shepherd his people as Christ which means instead of facing the congregation he faces Christ and leads us in Prayer during the Sacrifice of the Mass

  • Mass is sung or spoken in Latin, the Official language of Holy Mother Church. Prior to Vatican II no matter where you were in the World the Sacrifice of the Mass was unified under the Latin Language.

  • Women and girls wear veils. They do this because biblically women veiled when entering a house of God, it is an expression of modesty and shows reverence. 

In Addition to monthly, each day our Junior and Highschool students come in before the start of school to Pray the Office Prime and all students partake in prayer before meals and are instructed throughout the day in leading a life of faith.

 

We also partake in pilgrimages, observe special feast days and pray the Stations of the Cross as a school during Lent 

 

Statement of Faith

We believe in One God Who is Triune; God the Father created and upholds the universe; God the Son, Christ Jesus, Who, having become incarnate, entered into the temporal world of fallen man to die and redeem man from eternal perdition; God the Holy Ghost protects and preserves inviolate the Church’s Deposit of Faith and dwells within the souls of every man in the state of sanctifying grace.

 

We believe the Bible is the inspired and inerrant authoritative Word of God and we cherish and contemplate the sacred truths found therein.

 

We believe in the Divinity and the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through the spilling of His most Precious Blood and ignominious Crucifixion on the Cross, in His bodily Resurrection, in His descent into Limbo to rescue the Justified of the Old Covenant, in His glorious Ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory. We recognize the universal Reign of Christ the King.

 

We believe that Mary, the Mother of God, was conceived immaculately, free from the stain of Original Sin.Moreover, we believe the Blessed Virgin Mary possessed the special role of co-redemptrix in God’s redemptive plan.She is mediatrix of all graces, mother of the Church, the spiritual advocate of mankind, and the queen of Heaven and Earth.

 

We believe that in order for lost and sinful man to obtain salvation, it is necessary that he receive the Sacrament of Baptism, belong to the Holy Catholic Church, and die in a state of Sanctifying Grace.

 

We firmly believe and profess that the Catholic Church is the One, True Church founded by the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, Our Lord Jesus Christ.We believe that Christ instituted the seven Sacraments of Baptism, Penance, Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, Holy Orders, Holy Matrimony, and Extreme Unction to help mankind become members of the Church Triumphant in order to achieve eternal salvation.We believe that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the re-presentation of the redemptive Passion and Death of Christ Jesus on Calvary.

 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the damned, of the saved to everlasting blessedness and the Beatific Vision in Heaven, of the damned to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment in Hell.

 

We believe that, “We are saved by grace through faith”, and that “Faith without works is dead” (Ephesians 2:8-9 and James 2:17).

 

We profess the Catholic Faith in its totality, as it was always taught and transmitted by the Catholic Church, by the vicars of Christ, the Sacred Dogmatic Councils without excluding a single article of the rich treasures found within the Deposit of Faith.

 

We believe that human life commences at the moment of conception. We believe that from the moment of conception to the last moment of natural life all human life is sacred and each person is a unique, precious, and unrepeatable gift from God. Therefore, we abhor and denounce the slaughter of the unborn, infanticide, euthanasia, and human cloning in the United States and throughout the world.

 

We believe a genuine Catholic education is the process by which our children are led to see the world as God’s masterful handiwork.Such a process includes the development and expression of the student’s creative, intellectual, physical and social gifts so he, a young member of the Church Militant, may prepare himself for a role in life that best serves Almighty God.In addition, we believe Catholic teachers are called to guide students into a deeper understanding and appreciation of God, His universe, His Church, His Sacraments, making available to him unique opportunities and challenges to serve Christ our King.We believe parents must give each child entrusted to them an education in the home, Church, and the school, which is consistent with the Sacred Teachings of the Catholic Faith and essential to the covenantal relationship God has established with His adopted sons and daughters, who have been blessed with the sacred character of Holy Baptism.

 

Lastly, we believe the Christian Community should establish and support Catholic schools for the children of Christ in order to bring about the twofold effect of the destruction of the rule of the kingdom of Satan and the resurrection of a universal Christendom.
