Welcome to St. Philip Catholic Church


Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Additional Masses This Monday, Dec. 9


Monday, Dec. 9, is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. While it is not a Holy Day of Obligation this year, St. Philip will still offer additional Masses.

Monday Mass Schedule

English: 6:30am, 9am, and 7pm
Spanish: 8:30pm

While the Immaculate Conception is usually a Holy Day of Obligation, it is not in 2019. The USCCB explains, "Since December 8, 2019, is the Second Sunday of Advent, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is transferred to Monday, December 9, 2019. The obligation to attend Mass, however, does not transfer."

Prepare For Christmas By Spending Time With Our Lord


This month's adoration will take place on Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th. Please take an hour to be with the Lord in preparation for Christmas. Sign Up Here

Watchers are needed to sit with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. We need at least one person signed up for every hour Friday morning and then Friday night through Saturday morning. Can you spare an hour to sit watch with the Lord? 
 
Adoration begins with Exposition at 9:30am on Friday and the Blessed Sacrament will be repositioned in the tabernacle at 11am. Adoration begins again after the 7pm Mass and continues overnight. Please be aware that there will be some periods of praise and worship during overnight Adoration. If you are not familiar with the practice of adoration, we supply a handy guide and other reading materials in the vestibule. All you need to do to adore is to show up in the Church sometime on First Friday - for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour, whatever you can spare.
