We hope that visitors to our site will feel at home and be able to learn something about who we are - our life, our spirituality, our commitment to building community. We invite you to explore and discover our Priories around the country, read about the experiences of our Friar members, our history in Ireland and our experience of missionary life in Ecuador, Kenya and Nigeria. Our dedicated Lay Forum looks to the future and grapples with the difficulties facing Faith in Ireland today, while our commitment to safeguarding, and compliance with current legislation, is a necessary requirement that features explicitly.
From the beginning the Order has recognized St. Augustine of Hippo as its Father and Spiritual Guide. His life is extremely relevant for us today. His story holds up a mirror in which we can see ourselves – our weaknesses, our restlessness and our search for meaning. The famous sinner-turned-saint highlights an encouraging truth: no one can ever say, “I can’t. I give up.” God is constantly at work seeking us out. God always gives us another chance.
