St. Augustine of Canterbury
Episcopal Church welcomes you!
Whether you are returning to church after a time away, new to the faith, looking for a new church home or simply seeking a place of quiet, please know that you are welcome at St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church.
We are a thriving and growing community of believers and lovers of the Word of God with a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community.
Our congregation strives to recognize and nurture Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter. We offer a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth and worship experiences, and we actively share our faith in Christ with others through service, outreach and fellowship.
Please join us this Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ ... All are welcome.
Letter from Father Dale
Nearly four years ago Linda and I moved to Aiken to be near family and to retire. We had no idea what a wonderful large family we were moving toward!
St. Augustine has been and is our family—a large, loving, caring, Spirit-filled family. We also had no idea just when that retirement might take place. We would have been surprised if we had known it would be four years after our move. But the time has come for us to change our status and for me to retire. This is my third attempt at retirement—I think I will make it this time.
I cannot find words to adequately thank all of you for welcoming Linda and me into your community. I also cannot begin to tell you how much each of you mean to us. As of September thirteenth I will no longer function as your priest, but I pray that you all will always be our friends.
We are not moving out of Aiken. This decision was not based on any health issue. It is just time to step back. After a time of worshipping in some other settings we hope to return to St. Augustine and worship with all of you. You will be missed and you will continue to be loved by both of us.
The strength of my ministry will be seen in how you all go forward. I have complete trust in God and in all of you that the church will grow and prosper. I have trust in God that He will provide a wonderful spiritual leader for you.
Much love, many blessings, and ceaseless prayers,
Twenty-fifth Anniversary Celebration!
