Parish Festival Joy, Hurricane Hope and Prayers


Dear Parishioners,

Peace to you from the rectory!  It was a delight to be a part of our “mini-festival” in front of the church last Sunday, helping to sell t-shirts and distribute lawn signs for the parish festival. We’ll continue with these marketing efforts and after-Mass sign-ups this weekend and next as we gear up for our big event on Saturday, September 30.

On a much more sober note, I want to thank you for the outpouring of prayers and offerings for the victims of Hurricane Harvey last weekend.  Our prayers help the afflicted immediately and the funds will reach Texas soon enough via Catholic Relief Services.  Last weekend also witnessed Hurricane Irma wreaking terrible damage in Florida.  Cardinal DiNardo, the head of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, issued a call to prayer on September 9, right before the hurricane struck the US. His words are as imperative now as when first issued. Here is a short excerpt:

At a time like this, when our endurance is tested, we implore God to direct us to yet unknown reserves of strength and human compassion for those suffering so deeply. May our manifestations of love and solidarity be lasting signs in the midst of this crisis.

As I write this letter, I do not have any details regarding ways to send aid to the Florida victims.  By the time you read this, though, we should have specifics on collections, etc.  St. Philip the Apostle – pray for us.

Your servant in Christ, Fr. Donahue

Estimados feligreses,

Paz de la rectoría! Fue un placer ser parte de nuestro "mini-festival" frente a la iglesia el domingo pasado, ayudando a vender camisetas y distribuir señales de césped para el festival parroquial. Seguiremos con estos esfuerzos de mercadotecnia y después de las inscripciones masivas este fin de semana y el próximo mientras nos preparamos para nuestro gran evento el sábado 30 de septiembre.

En una nota mucho más sobria, quiero agradecerle por el derramamiento de oraciones y ofrendas para las víctimas del Huracán Harvey el fin de semana pasado. Nuestras oraciones ayudan a los afligidos de inmediato y los fondos llegarán a Texas pronto a través de Catholic Relief Services. El fin de semana pasado también fue testigo del Huracán Irma causando daños terribles en la Florida. El cardenal DiNardo, jefe de la Conferencia de Obispos Católicos de Estados Unidos, emitió un llamado a la oración el 9 de septiembre, justo antes de que el huracán golpeara a Estados Unidos. Sus palabras son tan imperativas ahora como cuando se publicaron por primera vez. Aquí hay un pequeño fragmento:

En una época como esta, cuando se prueba nuestra resistencia, imploramos a Dios que nos dirija a reservas aún desconocidas de fuerza y ​​compasión humana para aquellos que sufren tan profundamente. Que nuestras manifestaciones de amor y solidaridad sean signos duraderos en medio de esta crisis.

Su siervo en Cristo, el P. Donahue

Meet the St. Philip Deer Family

Please drive carefully in our parking lot!

A family of deer has adopted St. Philip as their home and can often be seen wandering in the woods, snacking on acorns at the edge of the soccer field or taking a stroll across the parking lot. 

We've named the family Felicity, Cosmos, Damian, and Agatha. Please, please be careful when driving through our parking lot. We love our little deer family -- as well as all the children and adults who visit our Church and use our parking lot. 

Also, please do not use our parking lot to teach your children, friends or family members to drive! There have been multiple accidents in our parking lot caused by these drivers, resulting in thousands of dollars in damages to our facilities. Please find a safer place for your driver's education activities.
