San Agustin Center of Studies in Quezon City housed the Province’s novices from 1984 to early 1989. But upon the completion of the novitiate house building in Barangay Mohon, Talisay City, Cebu in 1989, the first batch of Augustinian novices transferred there together with their formators. On February 3, 1989 the then Augustinian Prior General, Fr. Martin T. Nolan, OSA officially accepted ANPH as a house of the Order.
Some time ago the friars from this Community additionally ministered to the Santo Niño de Cebu Parish, yet in the year 2000 when the Mohon Parish became an independent Community it was halted. Beside the formation of the novices, the friars from ANPH likewise act as Chaplains to the Augustinian nuns in nearby Santo Niño de Cebu Monastery.
In July 2016, ANPH became the locus of the Asia Pacific Augustinian Novitiate or APAN. From then on, ANPH became an international novitiate house with novices from the different Asia Pacific circumscriptions of the Order of Saint Augustine staying on its hallowed walls.
