Who are the Midwest Augustinians?

The Augustinians of the Midwest are members of the Order of Saint Augustine, an international Catholic religious community which was juridically founded in 1244.

We trace our spiritual roots to St. Augustine of Hippo, a fifth century Bishop and Doctor of the Church. He established a form of religious community life. The influential Rule of St. Augustine lets down his ideals and serves as a guide. Augustinians are guided today by the ideals and spirit of St. Augustine.

World Day of Peace: Pope Francis' Message and Rule of St. Augustine

In his message for the 50th World Day of Peace, Pope Francis pleads for a rise in strategic non-violence within the global community. This is a non-violence that begins within one’s heart, is nurtured at the level of the family, and blossoms within the larger political order.
