ABOUT ST. AUGUSTINE'S COLLEGE KUJAMA

The Order of St. Augustine (OSA) is an international Organization of priests and brothers under the canopy of the Catholic Church. As a norm, all activities of the organization are inspired by the life and writings of the renowned Church Father, St. Augustine of Hippo. During his lifetime, St. Augustine (354-430 AD), led a distinctive life of study, prayer, contemplation, and service to humanity; as a consequence of which he got so much followership. Worthy of mention is also the fact that he authored a lot of books that explained essential Christian doctrines and expatiated on many concepts that touch on Christian morality. It is in record that after the death of Augustine in the year 430 AD, many autonomous groups evolved who based their life on the Rule he had earlier written for himself and the group he led.

In the years 1244 and 1256, in what became known as the “Great Unions” the different autonomous groups that had cropped up who followed the Rule of life that St. Augustine had written were brought together by the authority of the Catholic Church (under the leadership of Pope Innocent IV) to form an apostolic fraternity. Since its official formation, members of the Augustinian Order have worked in different parts of the world (including Nigeria) spreading the gospel values.

After a number of attempts, the Order took roots in Nigeria in 1938. And since then Augustinians in Nigeria have contributed immensely to the spread of the Christian faith and to the development of Nigeria as a nation. These and others have been achieved through the different apostolates of the Order, foremost of which is the Education Apostolate.

Our journey

October 2019

At SAC Kujama, there is emphasis on the centrality of God to any true education; in fact, as far as we are concerned, ‘education without God is defective’. Our stand on the necessity of God to education is rooted in the teachings of our Spiritual Father St. Augustine of Hippo, who himself was an educationist. St. Augustine in his philosophy of education insists that the teacher should help the student experience God. Without doubt, in a world that is fast being infected with the viruses of secularism, godlessness and individualism, the Augustinian system of education which St. Augustine’s College Kujama promotes is a ready cure.
