You Have Made Us For Yourself, O Lord, And Our Hearts are Restless Until they Rests In You.

– St. Augustine

“Welcome to our online community and may your time with us here help further your love of God and all.”

Fr. Tony Egan OSA

Welcome to our online home. We are very much at home in our 12 locations around the country but here, we open a new and exciting doorway to people who may not be that physically close to one of these communities. This link has proved invaluable to us during our Covid restrictions and lockdowns, but the possibilities are far wider than that.

Our Rule, the Rule of Saint Augustine, one of the oldest Rules of life in the Church, reminds us that the community must live in harmony, “being of one mind and heart on the way to God.” The most fundamental message of the Rule is this: “Love – love of God, love of neighbour – is the centre of Christian life.”

So, welcome to our online community and may your time with us here help further your love of God and all.”

The Augustinian Order

The Augustinian Order comprises both lay and religious, male and female, but our common bond is community and a relationship with Jesus Christ. Here in Ireland, the Augustinians can be found in many different cities and towns, in schools and parishes, as either lay or religious. However, the Irish Augustinians have frequently ventured overseas on the missions to such places as Ecuador, Kenya and Nigeria. While tending to the people’s pastoral needs, our friars have also taken the need for building community literally, building the physical infrastructure that communities so desperately need. Such projects have included the construction of churches, schools and hospitals. In essence, to be an Augustinian is to live a spiritual life in action. Furthermore, our commitment to safeguarding, and compliance with current legislation, is a requirement that features prominently on our site.

We invite you to explore our website and the history of the Irish Augustinians as it’s a history that has its foundations rooted in the rule, writings and teachings of Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430). These firm foundations, ancient though they are, have freed us to build communities that look to the future, with the values of unity, truth and love as their guiding principles. So Saint Augustine’s life is as relevant today as it was over 100 or 1000 years ago because he was someone who searched for meaning in his life. However, there is no denying that life has changed since St. Augustine’s time, we have advanced in technology, knowledge and science, but that same search that St. Augustine set out on is still with us today. As St. Augustine said,

‘You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.’

The Augustinians: A Life Shared

This video gives personal perspectives on the Augustinian life.

It explores the experience of Augustinian life and Community in Ireland and on the missions overseas. Both the Augustinian friars and lay people who share and contribute to the Augustinian way of life have given generously of their time to the making of this video. For that, we are deeply indebted to them.

“To fall in love with God

is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.

St. Augustine

There is no saint without a past,

no sinner without a future.
