Augustinian Friars (O.S.A.)—Mid-
west Province of Our Mother of
Good Counsel and Province of St.
Joseph, Canada The Midwest and
Canadian Provinces of the Augustinians are composed of 100 plus brothers and
priests. We currently have 12 men in initial formation. The Augustinians trace their spiritual roots
to St. Augustine, a 5th century Bishop and Doctor
of the Church. Augustine writes in the very beginning of his Confessions, “You have made us for
Yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until
they rest in You.” Augustinian life is a shared
journey to God, a life of contemplation and action, prayer and service. Our ministries include
but are not limited to: secondary education, parish ministry, foreign missions, care for the sick
and elderly, hospital chaplaincies, counseling,
shrine ministry and retreat ministry. We currently minister in Illinois, Michigan, Oklahoma,
Wisconsin, and the United Nations, in addition
to our missions in Peru and Japan. Vocation Director: Fr. Tom McCarthy, O.S.A., Vocation Office,

Augustinians of the Assumption (A.A.) The
Assumptionists are a worldwide congregation of
almost 900 religious priests and brothers located
in 30 countries. We are experiencing an uptick in
vocations among men inspired by our simple yet
expansive motto: “Thy Kingdom Come.” What
makes us unique? We’re traditional in insisting
on the essentials: love of Jesus Christ before any
other devotion, and love of his Body the Church.
We embrace the Rule of St. Augustine and such
monastic values as study, contemplation, silence,
fraternal life, and common prayer. But we’re also
apostolic, and so we seek to renew society using
a language and means that will reach the people
of our day. We focus on education in all its forms:
university education, but also journalism, ecumenism, foreign missions, parishes, youth and
campus ministry, the dialogue between faith and
culture, and more. Join us as we transform lives
and transform society. Come and see! www.as-
