A Statement from APAC

The Asia-Pacific region holds the largest population of any region in the world. It is becoming the economic powerhouse of the world, yet within it some of the worst aspects of poverty are found.

We face a world where we must work together so we might better enter into dialogue with those who share in faiths that differ from our own. We Religious are called to be prophets in our own time, witnessing by our way of life and challenging through our words and deeds. Augustinians are called to bring or uncover a sense of community in each part of the world in which we serve and to call people into the unity of the Body of Christ.

The goals of the Asia-Pacific Augustinian Conference (APAC) are:

  • To meet the need for close communication at all levels, foster relations and develop forms of assistance among all the members;
  • To promote projects at regional, national and international levels;
  • To promote vocations to our Augustinian family, better formation of our candidates, ongoing formation and Augustinian spirituality; and
  • To increase our common awareness of the values, needs and aspirations of the people of Asia and the Pacific, especially those of the poor and the young, and to develop new models of evangelisation.

APAC is a vehicle to support the efforts of individual congregations through shared conversations, training programs, immersion into the lives of one another, and by reflecting on the gifts that interiority brings to our members and our communities. APAC is to serve the common needs of our diverse congregations but not to replace those congregations. In our learnings and in our sharings we seek to come closer to the God who calls us and unites us.
