The Order of St. Augustine (www.augustinians.net) is a worldwide Roman Catholic religious order of brothers and priests serving in 43 countries. We are also associated with the United Nations as a non-governmental organization (NGO).
Augustinians International invites you to participate in our UN presence. We hope this website can tell you something of what the UN is doing and something of what we are doing there. Please feel welcome here. Feel free to read about our work, explore the websites of organizations we collaborate with, and contact us with your ideas. The UN belongs to us all, and all of us are needed to make a difference there.
Here on our website, you can find information about our NGO; St. Augustine’s views on justice and peace; the committees we work with; the UN and its agencies; and the social justice ministries of Augustinian friars and laity in each of our circumscriptions.
