History

The Augustinians have had a presence in the United States since 1796, when they first established St. Augustine Church. Established when Philadelphia was a young city in the new Republic, St. Augustine Church is located within the neighborhood currently deemed Old City, which is home to many of the well known historical sites in the city, including Independence Hall. In more recent years, the interior and exterior of the church have been used in the films, “The Sixth Sense” and “Shooter”.
