Marian Consecration:
What is it? Why is it important? How to do it?

Marian ConsecrationIf you weren't able to attend Sunday night's presentation on the Devotion to Mary, you can still participate in the 33-day preparation to consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary.

Information and materials are available here. Use the St. Philip Parish Code NDJWBD to create your free Formed.org account and access the materials.

Peter St. George, St. Philip summer seminarian, will be offering information sessions Saturday mornings after the 9am Mass, to help you prepare to Consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary on August 22, the Feast of the Queenship of Mary. 

Please contact Peter St. George at pete.st.g@gmail.com for more informaiton.

“For we never give more honor to Jesus than when we honor his Mother, and we honor her simply and solely to honor him all the more perfectly. We go to her only as a way leading to the goal we seek — Jesus, her Son.”
— St. Louis Marie de Montfort


Our Summer of the Blessed Mother

Dear Parishioners,

Peace to you from the rectory! Over the years we have been blessed to have Arlington seminarians assigned with us for the summer. Many are already priests – Fr. Johan Serrano, Fr. Thomas Cavanaugh, Fr. Dort Bigg, and Fr. Kevin Dansereau – while two others continue in formation – Charles Pavlick and Cory Russman. I am very glad that this summer we have seminarian Peter St. George with us. 

Last Sunday Peter gave a presentation on “Marian Consecration,” a holy practice of giving oneself to Mary so as to belong more completely to Jesus. (See more details above.)

After his July 16 presentation, Peter will continue meeting weekly to guide those interested in making the consecration. This group will then consecrate themselves to Mary after the 7 pm Mass on Tuesday, August 22.

We will round out the summer with another presentation on the Blessed Mother on Thursday, August 17 in the church after 7 pm Mass. This one will be on “Our Lady at Fatima and the Fall of Communism in the Soviet Union” by author and friend Craig Turner. Among other works, Craig has done two CD’s for Lighthouse Catholic Media (LCM).

It is fitting that we have this presentation this year, as 2017 is the 100th anniversary of Mary’s apparitions at Fatima. Our Lady’s message of peace there has had enormous impact on the world geopolitically and on millions of souls individually, my own soul included.

St. Philip the Apostle – pray for us!
Your servant in Christ, Fr. Donahue


"Hayden Hall" Recognizes Longtime Volunteer

Dear Parishioners,

Hayden HallPeace to you from the rectory! Last Sunday I was delighted to do a very special thing:  dedicate our cafeteria in honor of Mike Hayden! So from this point forward, our cafeteria will now be known as “Hayden Hall.”

Since retiring last fall after leading our parish festival for over 30 years, and after having done so much for our parish and school, there was a great desire to honor Mike. When the idea of dedicating the cafeteria to him was suggested, I heartily approved.

For those who were not present at this dedication last Sunday, please read the wording on the plaque which will soon be prominently displayed in “Hayden Hall”

Dedication of Hayden Hall in honor of Michael Hayden

With gratitude for unparalleled service to Saint Philip Parish, we dedicate this room to Mike Hayden in recognition of more than 30 years of service to our church community. As the leader of the Parish Festival and Head Usher, he has unselfishly given of his time and talent to all parish activities and special occasions. The ever-present Mr. Hayden has been a problem solver, a man of action, a hard worker, and a good soul. For all his time and energy spent at the parish and school, we name this room Hayden Hall in his honor.

Proclaimed with sincere gratitude on July 9, 2017

Since that space – previously known as the cafeteria – is so popular, our community will be continuously remembering Mike’s generosity every time we meet there.  May God bless you Mike for all you have done for our beloved parish! We are so happy that we have a room here in your honor – Hayden Hall!  St. Philip the Apostle – pray for us!

Your servant in Christ, Fr. Donahue
