As Augustinian women, we strive to "live together in harmony, as one heart and soul on our way to God." (Rule of Saint Augustine) The heart plays a central role in Augustinian spirituality; we cannot live religious life on a superficial level, but rather from the very depth of our heart.
Prayer takes an essential place in our life. All that we do flows from our prayer, which is a living dialogue with our God.
We follow the lead of our patroness, Saint Rita of Cascia, by offering our services of caring for those in need. This includes education, health care, assisting the poor, pastoral ministry and counseling, hospice and responding to the needs of today's world.
