Our Mission Statement


Welcome to St. Augustine Church and Catholic Student Center. As the banner in our courtyard reads, we are the ‘Home of the Catholic Gators.”  Our parish and student center is a hub of activity on University Avenue for all of our parishioners, student and non-student alike. I invite you to become involved in the many opportunities at St. Augustine to give of your time, talent, and treasure. You may want to sing with one of our choirs, become a lector or a Eucharistic minister, teach in Faith Formation or RCIA, or join a Bible Study group. New and returning students will also want to catch up on information about our Catholic Gator & Catholic Saints activities, such as the Newman Club, Catholic Student Fellowship, Nueva Alianza, Catholic Gators Small Groups, as well as our Alpha and F.I.R.E. Retreats. Our website has information on these, as well as other ways to offer service to the Lord and His church. I am here to answer any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact me. My door is always open.

Fr. Marek Dzien, Pastor
