Augustinian Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova
We experience God through community and live by the Rule established by Saint Augustine of Hippo. We are one of three Provinces in the United States. Ministries of our Province are located on the east coast of the United States, with missions in Japan and Peru. Our work as Catholic priests and brothers is in the community, and it is with the support and friendship of each community, that we join the international community of Augustinians in serving the world.
This is the date of death of Fr. John Frediani, a member of the Tuscan Province of the Order, who served for 47 years in the Villanova Province, 45 of them at Saint Rita in South Philadelphia. He returned to Italy shortly before his death.
