Consitent with the missionary charism of its founders, the Order of Augustinian Recollects constructed a church in Quezon City to address the pressing pastoral needs of the place. Named after the patron of the Recollect province which embraces the Philippines, the parish of San Nicolas de Tolentino helps in propagating devotion to the saint as patron of the souls in purgatory. Today the parish has a complex organizational network which caters to various forms of pastoral commitment.
