Saint Augustine of Canterbury, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, 605

Today at the 11:30 a.m. Eucharist (this Service is held each Wednesday morning at Trinity) we remembered Saint Augustine of Canterbury who at the request of Pope Saint Gregory the Great was the great missionary to England.

Here is a copy of the bulletin from the Eucharist. Augustine of Canterbury May 23, 2018 (PDF)

This is the opening Collect for the Feast:

Ever living God, you strengthened your servant Augustine, though he was fearful and laden with doubt, to lay the foundations of your Church among the English people. Grant us always to show forth the reason for all your gifts so freely bestowed upon us, by sharing with all peoples and races your infinite gift of salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
