The Augustinians serve in parishes throughout the world. In our parishes we seek to instill the Augustinian values derived from our way of life.
The Augustinians have several high schools and institutions of higher education located throughout North America modeled after Augustine’s own approach to education: a journey which engages communal life, the search for truth, and the life experiences of the student.
Shrines serve as places of encounter. They not only serve to enrich the faith of those who already actively practice our faith, but can also be places of evangelization where others come to discover Jesus Christ through an encounter with Mary and the Saints. The Augustinians have three shrines in North America and dozens throughout the world.

Justice and Peace
Augustinians and our lay partners are simultaneously involved with working to address the immediate needs of people in our local neighborhoods and around the world while also working to eliminate the systemic causes of suffering and injustice. The issues we are actively involved in include poverty, immigration reform, criminal justice reform, care of the environment, etc.
It was common in the era of Augustine for Church leaders to be appointed civic magistrates in the communities in which they lived. Augustine therefore became a vital figure in the administration of law, serving as an arbitrator between disputing parties and imposing settlements. Reconciliation and Restorative Justice therefore became frequent themes in his writings and homilies. Augustinians are involved in prison ministry in many places throughout the world.
