Welcome to St. Philip Catholic Church

Rorate Caeli Masses only during Advent


Parish Offertory Program

"Honor the Lord with your wealth"


As you watch the Saint Philip Parish Sunday Offertory Program video, please consider how you and your family can best support our church. Only about 300 of our 1,500 families regularly contribute.

We hope seeing the great people and the great things we do here will encourage you to pray and discern what you can pledge during this weekend's Parish Offertory Pledge Sunday, and that you will decide to "Honor the Lord with your wealth."

Would you like to start early? Sign up for Parish Giving and start supporting Saint Philip today.

VISIONS Series Begins Dec. 13

Monthly Presentations Look at Insporing Art, Architecture and History


Saint Philip Parish is proud to announce the start of a new educational program titled VISIONS. Produced by parishioner Andrew Zwerneman and the team at Cana Academy, VISIONS is a series of monthly presentations on inspiring art, architecture and history.

The inaugural presentation, Ivan Meštrovic: Song & Prayer Sculpted in Stone, will be offered December 13. Sessions will be held after the 9am Mass in room 2.

Some of the topics include the paintings of Caravaggio, Rembrandt, and Chagall; the architecture of the cathedrals in Chartres and Florence; the transformation of a World War II POW camp by Christians, the rise of the Solidarity movement in Poland, and the day that Rostropovich performed Bach’s Cello Suites at the Berlin Wall.

See stphilipsparish.com/VISIONS for details and the full schedule.


Help Us Stock Our Food Pantry For the Holidays

Please help us feed hungry families

Food Pantry
The St. Philip Food Pantry distributes food to needy families the first and third Saturday of each month from 10-11:30am. We are always in need of staples, including jelly and canned tuna.

The St. Philip Food Pantry was better stocked for families needing food right before Thanksgiving due to the generosity of the children of our Early Childhood Center. The tots and their families collection 350 cans of food for the pantry in November and learned about charity and caring for others. Thank you, ECC students!

When you do your holiday shopping, please consider adding extra rice, canned vegetables, mac n cheese, cereal -- particularly sweet cereal for kids (Honey Nut Cheerios, Frosted Flakes), peanut butter, jelly, condensed soups and chunky soups to your basket and then bringing these and other items to the drop off box inside the vestibule.

Volunteers are also needed to stock shelves, distribute food and other tasks. Please see our web page for more details.
