This church is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. My grandparents used to live across the street from this church so I have good memories of it.

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

Really worth seeing. The only complaint I have is that there is no information at the church or on their website about the history of the parish and the building itself.

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.

This church is decorated the old fashion way Catholic Churches were. Just being in this church the history of how this church was put together.

The people are very nice, the church is so beautiful - I think more beautiful than most cathedrals, & the music is superb - worthy of a platinum record. We are truly blessed to have St. Augustine in Austin, MN!

This is an overlooked gem in Austin. Much of the town's most historic buildings have long since been lost but this gem has been preserved marvelously and - like most Catholic Churches - is open to public nearly every day. I recently attended the Austin...More
