  • Welcome to our Pastorate

    The Catholic Parishes of South Washington County (CPSWC) joins together our three vibrant parishes to be a beacon of Christ's Light in our communities and beyond. Entrusted with this light at baptism, we go forth celebrating the sacraments, proclaiming the gospel, and serving the people of God. CPSWC offers both daily and weekend masses across our three parishes of St. Augustine,
    St. James, and St. Joseph. 

  • Inclement Weather Policy

    Reminder:  Weekday inclement weather, the churches will follow Washington County Public Schools; If school is closed or delayed, weekday morning masses will be canceled and the office will open at 10AM. On the weekends please check the inclement weather line on the church phone or check our Facebook page for up to date information. Although, as always, if the conditions warrant, please stay home and stay safe.

  • Outreach:

    Our pastorate supports two area food pantries: The South Washington County Food Pantry in Boonsboro, and the Williamsport Food Bank. Please bring your nonperishable food donations when you come to mass. Please be sure that your donations are not expired. 

    Fall is on its way and the following foods are highlighted for the month of SEPTEMBER:
    Beef Stew
    Sloppy Joe Mix
    Kidney Beans
    Bean with Bacon Soup


    Our pastorate also supports Micah’s Backpack, the initiative that helps students in area schools that experience food insecurity. Backpacks with nonperishable food are distributed to needed elementary/middle school aged children on Fridays so that they have enough to each over the weekends, when they are unable to participate in school meal programs. Needed food items: soups (vegetable, chicken noodle and tomato) mac and cheese, pudding and apple sauce cups, canned vegetables, and pork and beans. There are bins in each of our parishes for your donations to the food pantries and Micah’s Backpack.

    RCIA Mondays starting September 26, at 6:30 pm; Classes will rotate among the 3 parishes.
