First parish of the diocese, Hamilton 1827


St. Augustine Church, built 1864
Our  parish of St Augustine’s is the Mother Parish of the Diocese of Hamilton. In 1827, Fr. James Campion built a small wooden chapel in Dundas, marking the beginning of  St. Augustine’s Parish. The first baptism recorded in our register is August 06, 1827, and since then a vibrant community of faith has called St. Augustine’s  home to this very day.

A tangible need

Mass readings for the 2nd Sunday of Easter:Acts 4.32-35 Psalm 118.2-4, 16-18, 22-24 1 John 5.1-6 John 20.19-31 In the run up to Easter, there were a number of stories about Christian revival in the United Kingdom, in Europe, among notable public intellectuals around the world.
