Who we are…

The Congregation of the Servants of Christ-St. Augustine’s House-is an ecumenical Christian community whose life of discipleship is inspired and shaped by the Holy Rule of St. Benedict. We identify with the Lutheran tradition, understood as a movement within and for the one holy catholic and apostolic Church of Jesus Christ.
We are committed to the growth of the permanent resident community, to the pursuit of ecumenical understanding, and to the provision of retreats for members of the Fellowship of St. Augustine and others. We seek to serve the whole Church by our life of prayer and by the use of our facilities.

Lauds on Saturday

Saturday at Lauds – Dawn sprinkles all the East with light; Day o’er the earth is gliding bright; Morn’s glittering rays their course begin: Farewell to darkness and to sin. ~Office Hymn, st. 1

Father Jude

On December 21, 2020, Fr. Jude Motaka died. Final arrangements are being made in Pennsylvania so in order to have an observance here, the homily on Epiphany Day also included Fr. Jude as another “traveler from the East”. Here is a link to Fr. John’s words. https://www.staugustineshouse.org/wp-content/uploads/Motaka-Memorial-Sermon.pdf

Lauds on Friday

Friday at Lauds – Within our senses ever dwell,And worldly darkness thence expel;Long as the days of life endure,Preserve our souls devout and pure. ~Office Hymn, st. 3 ~Image: St. Augustine’s House cemetery
