The Secular Augustinian Recollect Fraternity (SARF), an organization within the Church and the Order of Augustinian Recollects that is composed of lay faithful who made their Promise and follow the Rule of our father St. Augustine and the Particular Statutes of the SARF. The Life and Mission Projects of the Order of Augustinian Recollect for 2016-2022 and of the Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno expressed the desire of the Order and of the Province to strengthen the life and spirituality of the SARF through constant formation based on the Augustinian Recollect Spiritual Exercises and the publication of the “Pilgrims” (cf. LAMP OAR p. 46; LAMP PSEM no. 60).

The Directory of the Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno (2018-2022) encouraged all brothers to attend with special interest to the needs of the Secular Augustinian Recollect Fraternity (cf. Const. 114); promote the alumni associations of our schools and seminaries (cf. Const. 313); and show friendliness and extend help to those who abandoned the Province, fomenting a spiritual link with them (Const. 513).

During the 2017 SARF Biennial National Convention, the following brother and sisters were elected as National Council Officers:

With the appointment of Fray Bernabe Dosdos, OAR, as Head of the Section for SARF and Spiritual Adviser of SARF National Council, he and the National Council Officers intended to visit the different SARF Local Chapters with the philosophy in mind:
1.To bring the SARF National to different Local Chapters.
2. To meet and know all members of SARF, thereby fostering unity among all.
3. To offer help to the Chapters, in terms of suggestions, recommendations, corrections, clarifications, and encouragements.

With these principles in mind, the National Council and the SARF National Spiritual Adviser, even before Fray Dosdos took the office, visited the Local Chapters in Luzon and Visayas Regions.
