Ministry is faith in action, gifts realized and shared, and life renewed in service of the God we love and praise. There are a wide variety of ministries at St. Augustine Church. You can enrich liturgies, serve the needy, help maintain our historic home, or build our presence in the Philadelphia area. Give a lot, or give a little - but please know that your talents and time are needed! Help us and enrich your faith life, for it is in giving that we receive.

The Augustinian charism is Community, and we take that to heart. Knit together in this historic church, you'll find restless hearts of active and interested young Catholic adults, Old City families, and a thriving Filipino network that spans the tri-state area and beyond. Together, we form the Community of St. Augustine Church. We have plenty of room behind our big red doors, so bring your restless heart to our Community. We can't wait to welcome you.
