Being OAR

To be an Augustinian Recollect means to live the Christian life in the style of St. Augustine: having a profound experience of prayer, sharing life in community and working for the Kingdom of God.

We Augustinian Recollects are religious consecrated to God who live our vocation by opting for a life of radical commitment through the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. This allows us the freedom to fix our gaze and aspirations on God, giving ourselves to the mission that the Church entrusts to us.
