Order of Saint Augustine

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

Thought of Saint Augustine
The absence of the Lord is not an absence. Just believe, and the one who you do not see is with you.
From infancy to old age, each age in all men has its own special beauty.
(De div. quaest. LXXXIII q.44)
Love either rises or falls. With honest love we rise to God; with dishonest love we fall into the pit.
(En. in ps. 122, 1)

Federation Of Augustinians Of North America

San Diego - California
February 2012

On Tuesday, February 21, 2012, the Prior General and Council approved the request presented by the three Priors Provincial of the United States and the Provincial Superior of Canada, to establish the Federation of Augustinians of North America (FANA). On the same date the statutes of the Federation were approved as submitted. This is the final step of a process which has been underway for four years and which has involved the active and repeated consultation of the friars of each of the participating circumscriptions, as well as the considerable planning, meeting and conversation of the current, and the immediate past, provincials and their councils. In early February, 2012 in San Diego, the decision to request the federation's establishment was unanimously approved by each of the four provincials with their respective councils. This was the final meeting of the former association of NACAP (North American Council of Augustinian Provincials), which had gathered the provincials annually since 1972.
