The Augustinian order is working on devising ways to evangelize secularized Europe and young people during the next few years, said members at the group's meeting in Rome.
"Since we're spread out in many different countries with many different governmental organizations, it's important for us to stress our unity and the way we want to work together and present ourselves to the wider Church," explained the order's vicar general, Father Michael Di Gregorio.
He told CNA that the order aims to establish a new program for the next six years "to deal with issues that are relevant to us in our daily life, our ministry, to confront challenges as a religious community."
As vicar general, Fr. Di Gregorio is currently leading the order's "general chapter" in Rome until the new prior general is chosen.
