Paving the way
The Augustinian Volunteers embody the spiritual values of the Order of St. Augustine. In the spirit of St. Augustine, who wrote often of his own restless heart, Augustinian Volunteers journey together on a path of self-discovery and personal growth while creating an intentional way of living with one another.
Relationship is a central value of the Augustinian Volunteers; volunteers are in relationship with the Augustinian friars, fellow volunteers, service site partners, program staff, and God. Three pillars, community, service, and spirituality form the foundation of the Augustinian Volunteers.
Seeking justice through faith in action
A primary function of the Augustinian Volunteers is to provide opportunities for young adults to be in service to others. Service is not just limited to the schools and social service sites with which the Augustinian Volunteers partner; volunteers are expected to be in service to one another in community life as well.
Restless hearts journeying together
Spirituality is woven through all aspects of the Augustinian Volunteer experience. Through community prayer and retreats, it is hoped that volunteers can develop a rich interior prayer life and a deeper understanding of their relationship with God.
One mind and heart intent upon God
