BECOMING AN AUGUSTINIAN
An Augustinian Me!
If you've clicked onto this page you must be interested - or at the very least, curious.
So why not?
What is an Augustinian?
The order is a brotherhood within the Catholic Church, so you need to be a Catholic to join.
Brotherhood? What if I'm a woman? We're not a co-ed Order. There are Augustinian Sisters - a number spread around the world. There is a group in Melbourne, others in Sydney and quite a few in the Philippines. As well, many congregations of Sisters follow the Rule of Augustine. Women can also be associated with the Order through our Augustinian lay groups.
But basically to join the Augustinians you need to be male, a person of faith and looking for your way of living that faith in a religious community.
To become an Augustinian assumes a certain faith commitment. That doesn't mean being overly churchy: it means being a person with a commitment to their faith. As a member of the Order you will be a professed brother. You may wish also to be a priest, but that's another choice to be made and involves study and training.
