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.

Last month, Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago, offered an opening prayer to the 460 gathered to celebrate the Augustinian Inaugural Gala. He briefly discussed his role in electing Pope Francis, Augustinian spirituality and ministry, and the Church in Latin America. Check out this video to see an excerpt from this Invocation.
Thank you to all that attended and sponsored our Inaugural Gala in Chicago on April 26, 2013. The event was a great success to raise awareness and funds for the Midwest Augustinians, and a great opportunity to bring together supporters from all over the Province.
