The Monastery of the Mother of Good Counsel at Bulacan, Philippines is a monastery not yet autonomous, but rather is still affiliated with the Italian Federation of Augustinian contemplative nuns. In July 2012 the monastery has eleven members in the community: eight are from the Philippines, two from Italy and one from South Korea. Eight of them have solemn profession, one is a novice, one is postulant and one is aspirant.

When:

In 1991 two nuns were sent from the Italian Federation in response to an invitation to begin a monastery in the Philippines. After a temporary beginning at Laguna, the present monastery was formally blessed and opened on 26th April 1998.

What:

On 26th February 2006 the Monastery opened its House of prayer, dedicated in memory of the late Mother Alessandra Macajone OSA (Italy), who for eighteen years had been the President of the Italian Federation of Augustinian Monasteries. The House of prayer serves as an oasis of silence and contemplation, a place where guests find a support for their spirituality and a home for souls thirsting for God. We, the Augustinian Contemplative Nuns, are glad that our visitors are able to find God here, as well as peace and new vigor with which to go on with life in God.

Designed to assist solitude and reflection, prayer and dialogue, and welcome and friendship, the retreat house is a place where individuals and groups can spend time to experience the loving and assuring embrace of God. To souls who long and desire to see God, we say "welcome!"

Our lives bear silent witness to the Word of God that is alive and active both in us and in the world for which we work and pray.
