With other members of the wider Augustinian family
We also have other branches of the Augustinian family (Augustinian Recollects, Discalced Augustinians, Augustinians of the Assumption, Augustinian contemplative nuns and numerous congregations of Augustinian Sisters) who work with us in developing Augustinian Spirituality across the Asia-Pacific region. It is specifically as this broader group that together we constitute APAC.
