About the Gala:

This annual event brings together the broader Augustinian family in celebration and support of the continued missions and ministries of the Midwest Augustinian Province of Our Mother of Good Counsel. Attendees will be able to socialize and dine with the friars whose lives they have changed through their support while hearing from distinguished speakers testifying to the impact and importance of Augustinian service.

This year, we will also celebrate and praise the devoted service of Prior Provincial Emeritus, Rev. Bernard C. Scianna, O.S.A., Ph.D, who served our province as Prior Provincial for eight years.

 As the Augustinians are, humbly and joyously, a mendicant order, the annual gala will help raise funds to support the training of men in formation, our retired and infirm friars, and our missions in Peru.
