The Augustinians

14 Mar 2015, by Rev. Fr. Joel Okojie OSA in Augustinians

The Augustinians are men and women who follow God in the spirituality of St. Augustine. St. Augustine needs no further introduction, especially to students of Church history, Philosophy and Theology. Augustine was a scholar born in 354 AD in the North Africa town of Thagaste, He established monastic Communities and wrote a rule that serves as guild for living in a religious community. In the year 1244-1256, the Church decided to bring together all the hermit communities under the rule of St. Augustine to form the Hermits of St. Augustine or the Order of St. Augustine (O.S.A.) as we know it today.augustinianlogo Our life is centered around community living, no one calls anything his own. We work in many Countries round the world (As Catholic Priests, Religious Sisters and also lay faithful) and with various apostolates.

As the Pope governs the whole Church so also the Prior General governs the Order of St. Augustine world wide. Meet our Prior Generals.
