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.
