The Congress calls our attention to the ecclesial nature of Augustinian education. As the Church so our educational ministry is a gateway to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and offers a pathway to the fullness of the Kingdom. It is in this context that we will explore the Augustinian educational apostolate which “should always be regarded as an essentially pastoral activity, so that we teach the truth with love, and the students acquire, along with a humanistic and scientific culture, knowledge of the world, of life and of humanity that is illumined by faith.” (Constitutions of the Order, #179).
The design of the Congress includes major presentations and stresses interaction of participants. Each presentation or experience is followed by small workshops on topics within the field of the presentation. This is one of the richest experiences offered by this international Augustinian Congress.
