As the COVID-19 virus has become a global pandemic, no individual, community or organization remains unaffected. During this time more than ever, the leadership of the Augustinian Volunteers remains committed to the health and safety each volunteer, the communities in which they serve and the common good. Out of an abundance of caution, AVs serving in Chulucanas, Peru have returned to the United States for a temporary, but indefinite period of time. Though restrictions are in place in all domestic service locations, volunteers continue to serve remotely or as essential workers when appropriate, while following the guidelines set forth in each city. As an organization we are closely monitoring this unfolding crisis as new information becomes available daily.
Augustinian Volunteers living in intentional community are called to commit to caring for each other and the common good. Now more than ever, in these unprecedented times, their continued commitment serves as an example of the relevance of these values in our modern world.
