The theme of the Augustinian Province of England and Scotland focuses on renewal, refreshment, repair and rebuilding; like God pressing the reset button. The reason for the relevance is because the experiences of St Augustine are so close to our own. Like many of us, he was restless, he searched for meaning and often ended up looking for happiness in all the wrong places. Augustine's attitude is "don't go it alone!" Don't rely on your own resources. We are too weak and our human frailties mean we need help from the One who is beyond us, yet closer to us than we are to ourselves.
Our January 2018 vocations weekend in Harborne, Birmingham is the perfect time to respond to God's call. This call invites us to come and see where Christ is in our lives and where our vocation lies.

A new Discernment Community for men will be starting soon. The community runs from September - July each year and involves one year of personal development and discernment. The spiritual programme is for men who will be living or working in London but would like to look at the possibility of religious life. The community is run by the Augustinians and the aim is that by the end of the programme, members will have a clearer idea of their calling (religious, priesthood, lay, consecrated or married life). For more information, contact Vocations Director Br Gladson Dabre OSA.
