Meet the friars
St Augustine's Church is more than a parish.
It's under the care of the Augustinians, a Catholic order of friars.
Five friars are currently in permanent residence at the Priory.
What is a friar?
Throughout St Augustine's life, he encountered God through family and friends - the important people in his life. Therefore Augustinians are people who decide to live in communities where relationships are at the heart of their experience of God.
The friars - a name which comes from the Latin for brothers - live, pray and work together. They form the beating heart of our parish community; the bonds of friendship they develop between themselves are extended to the wider parish.
