This is a beautiful structure and worth a drive by. We didn't go inside but did enjoy a close up view of the church. The town of Austin is very clean, the people friendly, and beautifully landscaped

St Augustines (St A's) is a wonderful home parish. The church family is welcoming and warm, Fr Steffes is a wonderful caring priest and a good friend. Please come and join us when you are visiting Austin you will be home away from home.
