Augustinian Secular Groups are Forming

Augustinian Secular Groups are a branch of the Augustinian family, made up of lay people who are called to live the Christian faith by following the inspiration of Augustinian spirituality.

Want to begin or join a group? Contact Fr. John Deary, O.S.A., Director of Augustinian Laity at
