Welcome to St. Philip Catholic Church

Fortnight for Freedom 2017


Parish Movie Night: A Man for All Seasons

Saturday night, June 24, 7pm in the Cafeteria

Join us for another parish movie night! In connection with the Fortnight for Freedom, which begins June 21, the vigil of the feast day of St. Thomas More, we will be showing the classic film based on the Thomas Bolt play, A Man for all Seasons.

Come and see St. Thomas More stand up for his convictions and for the Catholic Faith against King Henry VIII. 

The movie is rated G and Common Sense Media says it is appropriate for age 10 and up.

Enjoy the movie, food, drinks, and fellowship, and stay for a discussion after the movie.


Pope Asks for Input from Young Adults

Please Share Online Survey on Faith and Vocations

 
Pope Francis will convene the XV Ordinary General Assembly of Bishops in October 2018 on the theme Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. As part of the Synod is the opportunity for every young person in the world (Catholic or otherwise, age 16-29) to share their thoughts directly with Pope Francis. 
 
In a letter to all of the young people of the world (available here), Pope Francis encourages them to let their voice be heard. To assist with this, the Vatican has set up an online survey which can be found here (select the English version on the upper right of the page.) 
 
Please share this link with all the young people you know, and encourage them to share the link with their friends: 
 

The Need is Here; the Lord's Call is Here!

Please consider teaching the Faith to St. Philip's children

 
This fall, more than 200 children and young people, kindergarten through grade 8, will sign up to learn more about Jesus and the Catholic faith. You can help them learn and grow in faith by becoming a catechist for our Religious Education Program.
 
As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, "I learn so much from the children!" We provide you with training, materials, and support. We are looking for catechists.

Changes Made and Goals Met

Dear Parishioners,

Peace to you from the rectory!  When Bishop Burbidge announced the recent clergy assignments we were saddened to find that one of our resident priests, Fr. Kelly, is being transferred from Pope Paul VI High School to St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Fredericksburg, VA. It has been great living with Fr. Kelly these last few years, during which time his sense of humor has kept us laughing and his dynamic homilies have made us marvel. Thank you so much, Fr. Kelly, for sharing your priesthood with us as one of our residents – may God bless you in your new home!

At this time of transfers and ordinations, let me share news of two other clerics who have recently lived at St. Philip. Deacon Eric Zuniga of Mt. St. Mary’s Seminary, who served here during the last academic year, is now Fr. Eric Zuniga of the Archdiocese of Hartford, CT, ordained this past May 20. Likewise, Deacon Michael Baynham who worked with us for the last two years is now Fr. Michael Baynham of the Diocese of Dallas, TX, ordained June 3. Both Fr. Eric and Fr. Michael have indicated their desire to return to St. Philip sometime in the coming year to offer Mass for us. As soon as I know their plans, I will inform the parish.

Since I am on a roll with good news, let me share even more – two letters of thanks from Bishop Burbidge! The first was to thank St. Philip Parish for reaching our BLA goal of $110,000. He expressed his gratitude for our willingness to share with those in need throughout the diocese. That letter was dated April 7. The next, dated May 30, thanked the parish for our gracious hospitality, the beautiful liturgy and our well-prepared students at Confirmation on May 26. I am extremely happy that Bishop Burbidge was pleased, as it was his first visit to our parish. I look forward to many more, and from his letter of thanks, I think Bishop Burbidge does as well. St. Philip the Apostle – pray for us!

Your servant in Christ, Fr. Donahue
