Doug Farnum receives Anima Una Award

On April 6, 2017, at an afternoon mass in St. Augustine’s chapel in San Diego, the province of St. Augustine presented its “ANIMA UNA AWARD” to Doug Farnum. The words on the award expressed the gratitude the Augustinians have for Doug, who was a loyal friend to Fr. Jerome Bevilacqua OSA (of happy memory.) For many years Doug has tirelessly volunteered at the Augustinians’ Cedar Pines property of Tierra Del Sol, near Boulevard, California. Fr. Gary Sanders OSA, prior of the local Augustinian community preached at the mass, and provincial, Fr. Kevin Mullins OSA praised Doug “for being one in mind and heart with the Order of St. Augustine.”

The Anima Una Award is presented to women and men for their fraternal dedication and service to the Augustinians in California. “Anima Una,” a phrase used throughout Augustine’s writings, indicates being “One in Heart.”
