Another Chance for Latin Chant Class This Sunday
St. Philip Catholic Church will be offering a second class on Latin Chant this Sunday, October 30th. Even if you missed the first class, you can join this one and still be ready for the All Soul's Day Latin Mass November 2nd at 7:00pm.
During the classes you will learn the basics of the Latin language, and also have the opportunity to practice some of the more common Latin Chants.
Classes go from 6:00pm until 7:00pm and are held in the cafeteria. There is no cost, but RSVP is requested. Email ParochialVicar@stphilipsparish.com to RSVP.
Come join your friends and neighbors at this fun and interesting event!
Help Hurricane Matthew Victims
While the Church is always a primary source of healing and peace, it is often the case that the Church in areas affected by natural disasters is both an aid responder and a victim - many of the Church's structures have been damaged and local dioceses' resources have been depleted. This makes it more difficult to provide aid, comfort and pastoral outreach to those in need.
In light of this, the dioceses of the United States have been asked to take up a second collection for those impacted by Hurricane Matthew. In the Diocese of Arlington, this collection will be held on the weekend of October 29-30.
One-third of the proceeds of our collection will go to Catholic Relief Services to support their work in Haiti and other affected nations, one-third will go to Catholic Charities USA to support their efforts in the Southeast, and one-third will go to the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh due to the devastation caused by flooding in eastern North Carolina and also in recognition of our diocese's present particular relationship with Bishop Burbidge of Raleigh.
