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.
The Definitory minutes of this day record that "Rev. Frs. L. Spirali, P. Hufnagel and E. McCarthy, whose former convents were confiscated by the communists in Cuba, were assigned to the only convent in the state of Florida, Our Lady of the Angels in Jacksonville on January 8, 1962."
