Welcome to St. Philip Catholic Church

Pius XII: Defaming the Pope to Discredit the Church

Presentation by Author Tom Nash

Thursday, May 30, 7:45 pm, Hayden Hall
Pope Pius XII’s status as a genuine World War II hero—vilified by the Nazis, affirmed by secular journalists, and praised by Jewish leaders—changed with a Communist-inspired play called The Deputy in the early 1960s. The fictional work convicted Pius of egregious “silence” in the face of Nazi atrocities, and he even came to be portrayed as “Hitler’s Pope.” Come hear Tom explain the consequences of this work of fiction. You may recall Tom’s previous presentation last August on Mother Angelica.

Tom Nash has served the Church professionally for more than 25 years, including as theology advisor at the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). He is a contributing apologist for Catholic Answers, blogs for the National Catholic Register, writes for Catholic World Report, and is a research associate for Ave Maria Radio. Tom has appeared as a regular guest apologist on Catholic Answers Live for nearly a decade.

Tom is the author of What Did Jesus Do?: The Biblical Roots of the Catholic Church (Incarnate Word Media) and The Biblical Roots of the Mass (Sophia Institute Press) and contributed to Catholic for a Reason III: Scripture and the Mystery of the Mass (Emmaus Road Publishing). He is a regular member of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars and holds master’s degrees from Franciscan University of Steubenville (theology) and the University of Missouri (journalism).

Email and Texting Scam Alert!

Don't Fall for Requests for Gift Cards, Information, Even if They Look Like They Come From St. Philip

Please be aware: No one from St. Philip will EVER email you asking for gift cards or your credit card information. If this happens to you, please let us know and also report the fraudulent email to your email provider and law enforcement, if appropriate.
Parishioners from parishers across the Diocese have reported receiving emails and texts from someone pretending to be our priests asking for assistance, and then asking for gift cards or other items.
Even if the phone number or email address looks legitimate, please be wary. It is very easy to display fake email addresses and phone numbers. This scam has been reported at churches across the diocese as well as at churches and businesses across the country. Don't fall for it!  
Find out more about these scams on the Federal Trade Commission website.
