About the Augustinians

Augustinians are members of the Order of Saint Augustine, an international Catholic religious community of men and women. In the United States, there are three regional provinces of Augustinians. The Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova, in the east, sponsors Villanova University, Merrimack College, two high schools and over 14 parishes. They staff a variety of ministries, including inner-city ministries in the United States and missions in Japan and Peru. Augustinians collaborate with committed lay women and men, their benefactors and friends, and draw on resources from their institutions and volunteers to bring Christian ideals into real life situations, especially for those in need around the world.
