Augustinian Canons

Canons who observe a regular life but unlike monks are not required to withdraw from he world and engage in pastoral work, after the example of the Apostles. They follow the Rule of St Augustine, a letter of guidance compiled by St Augustine of Hippo (d. c. 430), which sets down a schedule for daily communal devotion and emphasises the importance of charity, obedience and individual poverty. The Augustinian Canons preached, taught, cared for the sick and administered the sacraments. The first Augustinian foundation in Wales was established at Llanthony, Monmouthshire, c. 1108.
