Welcome!

St. Philip Feast Day Party

40 Hours Devotion Starts This Sunday, May 1

40 Hours DevotionThe Feast Day of Saint Philip, our Patronal Feast Day, is coming very soon. It is a tradition of the Church to spend the days before the Patron Feast Day in prayer and Adoration.

Here at Saint Philip we will do this very thing! Beginning on Sunday, the 1st of May, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed upon the Altar in the Church. Adoration will continue until Tuesday evening, when the Parish will celebrate the Feast Day of Saint Philip with a Bilingual Mass at 7:00 pm, followed by a party!

In order to facilitate this great devotion we will need help! Jesus Christ in The Blessed Sacrament must be attended continuously as long as He remains exposed on the Altar. We will need volunteers to pray in the Church for a single hour. Sign up here.

We will also need volunteers to bring food to the party! We are asking all in the parish to participate in this devotion in some way. Even if you cannot support this devotion in the ways mentioned above, we ask that you support it with your prayers.

This is an opportunity to gather as a community, offering thanks to almighty God for the gift of this Parish, the gift of our Faith, and the gift of the Most Holy Eucharist. It is also an oppor-tunity to pray for our Parish, our families, our friends and ourselves. Finally, it is an opportunity to grown in devotion to Christ in the most Blessed Sacrament.

We look forward to praying and partying with you in just a few weeks!

May God bless you all!
The Priests at Saint Philip Catholic Church


From the Desk of Fr. Donahue

Dear Parishioners, 
Peace to you from the rectory! On April 8, Pope Francis released his much anticipated document on the family, Amoris Laetitia: The Joy of Love, which is the fruit of his reflections on the 2014 and 2015 synods of bishops, both of which dealt with the family.  Clearly, the family is a priority for Pope Francis and the Church: we all come from families, many of us have our own families, and here at St. Philip, we envision our parish as a family of God’s children.

Amoris Laetitia: The Joy of Love

Is this document for everyone? – I don’t know, but certainly the content is meant for all.  Is this document accessible to everyone? – probably not, as it is long and at times complex, which can be daunting.  Is it worth trying to read this large document? – sure, especially with the help of some additional resources and a willingness to approach the document incrementally. So start with listening to the interviews or commentaries dealing with Amoris Laetitia on Catholic radio, either at 1160 AM, or on the Ave Maria Radio App, or at the Ave Maria Radio website. Anything you hear or find there, especially those items supplied by Al Kresta, should be a big help.

If you find Catholic radio helpful, then next have a look at the official summary from the Holy See. It is only 6 pages, providing highlights from each of the nine chapters of the document. If after reading the summary and listening to the commentaries on Catholic radio, you find yourself wanting more, then go to the document itself, Amoris Laetitia, found on the Vatican website. I will be delving into this document real soon with an eye to sharing insights and applying them to parish life here at St. Philip. This will be a lot of work, and a big task, but worth it, because our families are worth it – so expect more on Amoris Laetitia in the coming weeks, months and even years!  St. Philip the Apostle – pray for us!

Your servant in Christ, Fr. Donahue
