Welcome to St. Philip Catholic Church


St. Philip 40 Hours Devotion Nov. 21-23

Prepare for the Christmas Season By Spending Time With Our Lord

 

"Could you not keep watch for one hour?"
(Mark 14,37)

Come and spend an hour with the Lord in prayer leading up to the feast of Christ the King! Treat yourself to a retreat with Jesus.

"Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease."  
                                           
— Pope Saint John Paul II Dominicae Cenae 3

The Catholic Farmer Who Confronted Nazis

November 21 VISIONS Program Looks at Blessed Franz Jägerstätter

 

The monthly program, VISIONS, continues on Thursday, November 21, immediately following the 9:00 a.m. Mass. This month's presentation tells the story of Catholic martyr, Blessed Franz Jägerstätter. He was a farmer from a remote Alpine village in Austria and conscripted into the army following the German Anschluss. Jägerstätter was faced with a definitive choice: take the oath to Hitler or follow his conscience.

This VISIONS program anticipates the release of A Hidden Life, Terrence Malick's latest film, which depicts Blessed Franz's confrontation with the Nazi military. As part of the program, we will say the Lord's Prayer auf Deutsch (in German)!

Refreshments are provided. Parishioner Andrew Zwerneman is the presenter. Everyone is invited to join us in Room 2. VISIONS is a presentation of CANA ACADEMY. Learn more at www.canaacademy.org

Sanctuary Closed for Lighting Installation This Week

Daily Mass has been moved to other rooms while new sanctuary lights are being installed in the Church. 9:00 am Mass is being held in room 2. 7:00 pm Mass is being held in Hayden Hall. Vigil Mass and Sunday Masses will take place in the sanctuary. However, lighting may be limited during these times. 

Daily Masses will return to the Sanctuary the week of Nov. 18. However, lighting work will continue between Masses, which will necessitate closing the Sanctuary during weekday hours. Thank you for your patience during this important safety and energy efficiency upgrade.
