St. Augustine

St Augustine, the Patron of our School, was born at Thagaste in Africa in the year 354 A.D. As a young man he led an unsettled life both in the philosophy he professed and his moral behaviour, but later in the year 387 A.D. he was converted and received baptism at Milan from the bishop Saint Ambrose. He came back to his own country and led the life of an ascetic. Elected Bishop of Hoppo, for 34 yearshe was an exemplary Bishop to his people teaching them by his sermons and writings. He died in the year 430 A.D.

“Late have I loved you, O Beauty so ancient and so new.
Late haved I loved you! For behold you were within me.
I sought you outside and in my ugliness fell upon those lovely
things that you have made.
You were with me and and I was not with you.
I was kept from you by those things,
Yet had they not been in you
they would not have been at all”.
