Between December 13-15, 2011, Very Rev. Fr. Miguel Miro, O.A.R., Prior General of the Order of Augustinian Recollects, accompanied by the General Secretary, Fr. Sergio Camarena, O.A.R., met at Tagaste Monastery (Suffern, New York) with the Prior Provincial, of the Province of St. Augustine, Fr. Joseph Gallardo, O.A.R., and the members of the Provincial Council along with representatives of the Secretariat of Formation and Vocations. The meetings was organized by Father General as part of an effort to review and revitalized the vocation apostolate of the Province. The entire Order is involved in a long-ranged process of retructuring and renewing its various ministries in the face of the changing picture of contemporary society and the questioning of religious traditions and values. The Prior General is anxious to obtain more direct information concerning the resources of the community, the obstacles to the recruitment of new members, and the current state of religious formation both for new candidates and for the continuing formation opportunities for senior religious. Each of those attending the meetings during these three days has been given an opportunity to express his opinions in an atmosphere of open dialogue. The community of Tagaste Monastery has provided the support services for the gathering.

Mass for vocation at Sacred Heart Basilica, Newark, New Jersey- October 30, 2011

Fr. Francisco Sandoval, oar and Frater Jorge Valdivia, oar, were invited to a special mass for vocations and religious held at Newark Cathedral by his Eminence John Jay Myers, Archbishop of Newark.  Hundreds of religious both men and women were represented at the beautiful ceremony.  More were expected but because it was a day after one of the worst snow storms to date struck the Northeast, some were absent.  Nevertheless, the attendance was very impressive and those present were very fervent as they all processed with his eminence the archbishop.  Afterwards, they all went to the Archdiocesan center across the street to join for a light meal and to share with the other religious and any young person interested in knowing more about a particular religious community.  May our faithfulness to our way of life attract many young men to answer the call to serve the Good Lord in his Church.
