Augustinian Secular Fraternities

For you have made us for yourself and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.
— The Confessions of St. Augustine

Augustinian Seculars are lay men and women who bind themselves by formal promises to share in the Augustinian way of life, being of one mind, and one heart, intent upon God. While living and working within the community, Augustinian Seculars live their faith, hope and love through community, following Christ through Augustinian spirituality.

Augustinian Friends
