Order of Saint Augustine

"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
If you elevate yourself, God distances himself from you. If you humble yourself, he leans towards you.
Because every man is a neighbor to all men, one should not allow any kind of distance where there is a common nature.
(En. in ps. 118, S 8, 2)
Past and present I find in all movement of things; but it is not so in the Truth that remains forever; I only find the present in her, and this is incorruptible; this cannot be said of creatures.
(In Io. Ev. XXXVIII, 10)
From the General Council

Congress Of Augustinian Educators & Schools

Lima - Perù
July 30 - August 3, 2012

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.

We are hoping that each Circumscription with Educational centers and institutions will do everything possible to participate in the Congress. By the link you will find the Program and the Registration Form.
