Old St. Joe’s

“St. Augustine Goes to SNC”
The Rev. Andrew D. Ciferni, O. Praem., B.A., S.T.L., Ph.D.
Daylesford Abbey

Augustine of Hippo (354-430) ranks among the greatest minds in Christian thought and spirituality. He was both a student at Carthage, North Africa and a teacher in Italy (Rome and Milan). What he learned from those experiences may well be reflected in the rule he wrote for his north African communities, the rule Norbertines strive to follow in their community life. This presentation will propose some ways in which this rule can be a guide toward a life at SNC more in accord with our mission.

The lecture and time for questions and answers will follow the presentation of the Founder’s Awards.
