The Community is made up of fifty sisters. The Prioress is elected by those sisters who have made their perpetual vows, for a three-year mandate, renewable twice. The Community also elects an assistant and six advisers. These sisters are responsible for the work of the Community and the activities of the hospital complex, while the Community is the owner and manager of the different establishments. It delegates to Mr. Nautré the general direction of the hospital complex of Saint Augustine.
The Community belongs to the Federation of Augustinians of the Mercy of Jesus created by Mother Yvonne Aimée in 1946. The Europe-Africa Federation is comprised of 12 autonomous monasteries in France, 3 in England, 1 in South Africa, which is made up of 4 establishments, 1 Priory in Nigeria and 1 in Burkina-Faso.
Every four years, the general chapter, made up of the Prioresses and Delegates of the various monasteries, elects a Superior General and a Council, which are responsible for promoting the common orientation of the Order in the intervals between chapters. The different Canadian monasteries, whose origins date back to the departure of three French sisters in 1639, constitute the Canadian Federation.
Program of formation for the religious life: two years of noviciate, then three years as professed sisters under temporary vows, at the conclusion of which they make their perpetual vows.
