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.

“Little girl, get up…”

Mass readings for the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time: Wisdom 1.13-15; 2.23-24 Psalm 30.1, 3-5, 10-12 2 Corinthians 8.7, 9, 13-15 Mark 5.21-43 The gospel today is a famous one.

Now, I think it’s better characterized as a misunderstanding on the family’s part. That it occurred, and that it is remembered and memorialized […]
