What is The Apostolate of Saint Augustine?

The Apostolate of Saint Augustine is a Catholic apostolate whose purpose is fostering prayer and sacrifice for those who have lost their faith in God.

The pressures of today's society on belief and faith are immense. Belief and reverence are under attack from the media, education and peer groups, as well as from both within and outside of the Church itself. Those who believe and practice the faith as taught by the Apostles of Jesus Christ are belittled and made fun of on a regular basis. The right of all Americans to choose to believe in a power greater than themselves is being challenged and questioned as never before.

Many, many people fall away from the faith at some time during their lives and in some families, there is no one left who is committed to praying for them in their faith struggle.

Prayer is powerful. Fasting, Adoration, the Rosary and the offering up of our daily challenges and inconveniences are ways that each one of us can effect positive change during this period when unbelief becomes the assumed world view of our modern culture.

Let us join together in prayer and sacrifice for all those who have lost their faith in Our Lord. Let us commit to sacrificing our time and our sufferings for their entering in to a new relationship with God.
