The first General Chapter of the Augustinian Recollection was held in Madrid from November 19 to 30, 1621. The Congregation then had four provinces. The fourth, under the patronage of St. Nicholas of Tolentine which eventually became a missionary province, had houses in the Philippine Islands.

On November 30, 1998, the 52nd General Chapter approved the Acts to legislate the various aspects of the life of the new province, the Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno.
