Filipino Catholics gathered at St. Augustine Church in Philadelphia on Sunday, Aug. 15 to celebrate the summer Sinulog Festival in honor of Señor Santo Niño de Cebú, the Holy Child Jesus, venerated since the 16th century as miraculous by the Filipino community. St. Augustine’s is the national shrine for devotion to the Santo Niño in North America, and the church is a locus of worship for many Filipino-Americans in the Philadelphia area.
