The Augustinian Recollects, working in 19 countries, make an effort to form Christian groups of young people to live with joy a spirituality based upon love and friendship and affiliated with the Augustinian Recollect Family.
The Augustinian Recollect Youth has come into being as an expression, among young people, of the life and style of St. Augustine as shared with his friends and as imitated by his followers. The young people of these groups seek to follow Jesus in accordance with the charism of St. Augustine who has provided us with ideas and symbols which help in the daily living of the Gospel.
In these groups, the young participants come to be united spiritually to one another and committed to living the four essential dimensions of the Christian life, that is, the formative, the collaborative, the apostolic, and union in communion.
Augustine plumbs the depths of the human spirit so profoundly that he speaks directly to the heart. Our youth are “touched” by St. Augustine to such a degree that they themselves become “restless hearts”.
