St Philip calls Mother Suzanne Culhane

as part-time priest in charge.


On May 27, 2018, Mother Suzanne will begin her pastoral ministry to St. Philip's parish with the celebration of the Eucharist at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend.


As with all changes, there is both joy and sadness in this announcement.  While we look forward with great anticipation to Mother Suzanne's arrival, we are sad that we will be losing Father Christopher Sigamoney, who has served us faithfully and lovingly for the past year.  Father Chris' kind and generous spirit will be remembered, and his steady, loving presence has changed our congregation in profound and deeply spiritual ways. We have grown in faith and learned of Christ, both from his sermons and his actions.  We send Father Chris to his new pastoral ministry with ferverent prayers for continued success. 


Father Chris's last Eucharist with us will be May 20 at 10:30 am. We will be hosting a special coffee hour after Mass in his honor. Please join with us to celebrate his ministry.

STILL ON GOING AND COLLECTING ITEMS

BACK PACK FOR LIFE - VETERANS OUTREACH


shield

 

“But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed because they cannot repay you.  For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

(Luke 14:13-14)


St. Philip's is partnering with Backpacks for Life, to provide homeless and low income veterans with help and hope.

We are an official collection center for BFL, and are collecting (full-sized, unused) toiletries for both men and women veterans.  Needed items include toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental flosser picks, pocket tissues, shave creme, shampoo, soap (liquid or bar), deodorant, disposable razors, antibacterial ointment, and combs. BFL provides the backpacks; we provide the items needed by the veterans.


Bins for your donations are located in our Parish Hall.


BFL's mission to  provide veterans with things they cannot provide for themselves matches Christ's call to us to help the poor, the sick and those in need. This Lenten Season, please "do one more thing," and help our Vets.


Reintegrating into society after service has many obstacles and sometimes isn’t  easy for our veterans. BFL strives to be the community-based support system that homeless & low income veterans may not have. BFL helps them to get back on their feet; whether that means finding a job, finding housing or giving them a backpack full of daily essentials to help them survive. Veterans can be found in all walks of life and professions. Unfortunately, veterans also make up a large portion of our homeless population in this country.  Like other homeless and at risk people, they may suffer from PTSD, depression or addiction. We owe it to those who have protected our country to help them when they need it.

PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM. DONATE.


BFL is a recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, founded by veterans for veterans.
