The congregation was founded in 1883 and had its beginnings in the Beaterio de Mantelatas de San Agustin in Barcelona, Spain. It was founded by two blood sisters, Mother Rita and Mother Consuelo Barcelo y Pages, OSA from Sarria, Barcelona.
As an institute primarily dedicated to education, the congregation was aggregated to the Order of Saint Augustine (OSA) on May 31, 1902. Thereby it became an apostolic branch of the Augustinian order.
In 1975, the Sacred Congregation for Religious and for Secular Institutes granted Pontifical Recognition to the congregation. As an Institute of Pontifical Right, the congregation is religious apostolic in nature.
The Augustinian Sisters of Our Lady of Consolation envision a partnership of shared mission among people with generous and compassionate hearts as Channel of Blessings to serve the Last , the Least, and the Lost, with one mind and one heart on the way to God.
In the Philanthropic Development Office, we the Augustinian Sisters as a community of friends believe that we are called to incarnate the compassionate Christ and promote the intrinsic dignity of human persons and of creation. In solidarity with our people who experience illiteracy , massive poverty, degradation of values system and destruction of creation, we provide Augustinian Catholic education, socio-pastoral ministries, care for the migrants, health and eco-spirituality ministry. We commit our service for the transformation of the world and integrity of creation.
Be God’s Compassion and Consolation!
