There is no distance that an Augustinian Recollect heart cannot unite

Updated: Jul 31, 2023

On June 16, a group of 19 students from the Agustiniano College in Guatemala set out on a trip to Argentina, with the objective: to live for two weeks perhaps one of the most significant experiences of their lives, those experiences that remain engraved in the heart and are carried with them. in the soul.




The experience began in Buenos Aires, sleeping the first day in the seminary of the Augustinian Recollect Friars, it was like being at home, the boys and the accompanying directors were one more at the table.


The following days they stayed with a group of host families from the Agustiniano de San Andrés school, not to mention the good hospitality and affection they gave the students.


The trip had to continue to its final destination, the Niño Jesús and San Ezequiel Moreno school in the city of Santa Fe. A six-hour bus ride turned into reality what had been discussed and put down on paper at some point, becoming reality the first academic, cultural and pastoral exchange between two Augustinian schools.


Some wonderful host families, a wonderful city and a school with the Agustino Recollect imprint, in its corridors community was breathed, that Augustinian community that knows no distances, knows no borders, only knows the restless heart of San Agustín where all are brothers and share the same charisma


Without a doubt, this will be one of the best life experiences for families and children, thanks to all the friars, directors of both schools and families who made it possible for this experience to take place, thanks to Red Educar for promoting this type of experience that leaves an indelible mark on the heart... an Augustinian Recollect heart.
