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.

Mass readings for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ:Exodus 24.3-8 Psalm 118.12-13, 15-18 Hebrews 9.11-15 Mark 14.12-16, 22-26 I have a little card on the bulletin board in my office. On it is a quote from St. John Paul II. It says, “In that little Host is the solution to […]
