Saint Augustine Church is a Catholic parish of the Archdiocese of Hartford located in the South End of Hartford's historic "Barry Square" named by the Hartford City Council in tribute to its founding pastor the Rev. Msgr. Michael W. Barry.

One of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, "What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?"
They paid him thirty pieces of silver, and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to hand him over.
On the first day of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, the disciples approached Jesus and said, "where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover"? - He said, go into the city to a certain man and tell him, "The teacher says, "My appointed time draws near; in your house I shall celebrate the Passover with my disciples." The disciples then did as Jesus had ordered, and prepared the Passover.
When it was evening, he reclined at the table with the Twelve, and while they were eating, he said, "Amen, I say to you, one of you will betray me.".......
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible
not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us
miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
your tender Mother and ours.
