Prior Provincial Fr. Michael F. Di Gregorio, O.S.A. joined by his brothers Frs. Francis J. Doyle, O.S.A., David A. Cregan, O.S.A., Joseph E. Mostardi, O.S.A., Liam O’Doherty, O.S.A. and Advancement Director Madonna Sutter, gathered with friends and benefactors on Staten Island where the Augustinians ministered for nearly 120 years. 

 

We began our time together at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church for the Celebration of Mass.

Afterwards, we hosted a friendship gathering at Le Greci’s Staaten with parishioners, Augustinian Academy alumni, and collaborators at Mount Augustine Apostolic Center.

 

It is uplifting to know that even though the Augustinians are no longer present on Staten Island, there remains a strong desire to stay connected to the Augustinian Charism.
