Welcome to the Midwest Augustinians’ capital campaign website for the Continuing Our Journey of Faith Campaign. This campaign is an effort to provide funds for the Fr. Ray Ryan, O.S.A. Trust (to provide for men in formation and vocations outreach programming) and the Journey of a Lifetime Trust (to provide for the needs of our retired and infirm Augustinians).  Please use this site to learn more about why the Augustinians are having this campaign, to meet the leaders of our Campaign Cabinet, and to watch the progress of our campaign as we move closer to our goal. 


Prayer to Our Mother of Good Counsel

We have adopted the prayer of Our Mother of Good Counsel, our patroness, as the campaign prayer. With faith in God and St. Augustine we are committed to doing our very best and we hope that you will join with us. We are very grateful for your prayers, your thoughts, and your gifts.

We turn to you, our Mother of Good Counsel, as we seek to imitate your faith-filled life. May we be led by the same Wisdom which God sent forth from Heaven to guide you along unfamiliar paths and through challenging decisions.

Keep us united in mind and heart as we go forward in joyful hope toward the grace-filled freedom that Saint Augustine recommends.

O Virgin Mother of Good Counsel, hear our prayers as we look to you for guidance. Pray for us to our loving and merciful Father, to your Son, Our Lord Jesus the Christ, and to the Holy Spirit, giver of all Wisdom, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
