Parish Festival 2021 Planning Underway

Save the Date: September 25

As public health conditions improve and statewide restrictions on social gatherings are lifted, St. Philip looks to have the parish come together with its Parish Festival, held annually on the last Saturday in September.

We also recognize that our parishioners have different feelings about participating in large social gathering and that vaccinations are still happening. What activities we can offer always depends on the gracious time commitments of our parish volunteers. In 2021, it also depends on everyone's comfort level in socializing. Our call for volunteers is going to come earlier than normal this year.

As the date of the festival is about two months away, here is what can be done now:

  • Pray for the continued success in overcoming the Covid-19 virus, in the continued reduction in cases, and for our public health professionals.
  • Reflect on your own comfort level in (re)integrating into parish activities.
  • Look for items to donate for the parish auction. (Drop-off date to be announced!)
  • Reach out to our coordinator Suzanne Webb or the parish office.

If you are willing to volunteer or have questions/concerns about the Parish Festival, please contact Suzanne Webb at Suzanne Webb at Suzannedwebb@hotmail.com or 703-966-7589.
