Welcome to St. Philip Catholic Church


Join Us at the Virginia March for Life

Bus to Richmond Leaves After the 8am Mass

St. Philip's Parish is organizing a bus to go down to Richmond for the Virginia March for Life. The timing of the day is key, since it will be during the first regular legislative session in Virginia since the Dobbs decision, and there is an opportunity with support from Governor Youngkin to improve abortion laws in our state, such as passing a 15-week ban.

A bus will leave from the St. Philip parking lot after the 8am Mass, approximately 9am. We will participate in the rally and march, and then depart from Richmond at 3:30pm for a 5pm (depending on traffic) return to St. Philip.

Bishop Burbidge will be participating in the Virginia March for Life. Watch this special invitation to join him, "Every Voice Makes a Difference | Virginia Pro-Life Day" here.


Help Us Celebrate Our New Deacon

Pray Service and Potluck This Sunday, Jan, 29, at 6pm

Parishioner Rob Sardegna received his “call to orders” from Bishop Burbidge to be ordained a permanent deacon on Saturday, January 28, at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More in Arlington. Due to space limitations, the whole parish will not be able to witness this wonderful event. All are welcome to Deacon Rob Sardegna’s first Masses as deacon here at St. Philip Church at 9am and 11am on Sunday, January 29.

Later that day, we will continue to honor Rob at one of our “Eat, Drink and Be Catholic” events. We will start at 6 pm with Evening Prayer in the church, then move to Hayden Hall for a potluck dinner. Please bring a dish to share and help us celebrate Deacon Rob!

"Catechism in a Year" Study Continues; Next Meeting: Tuesday, Jan. 31

St. Philip parishioners are reading the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church together using “The Catechism in a Year” podcast with Fr. Mike Schmitz. Get the reading plan and podcast here. Upcoming dates are Feb. 14 and 28, March 14 and 28, and April 11 and 25.

Watch and Discuss "The Chosen" on Monday Nights

We meet Mondays at 7:45 pm in the Newman Room. We are finishing season 2 and will soon start season 3. The Chosen is the first ever multi-season TV show about the life of Jesus. Created outside of the Hollywood system, The Chosen allows us to see Him through the eyes of those who knew Him. No matter where you are at in your journey with Jesus Christ, this TV show is for you. It pulls the four Gospels into a new video series about Jesus Christ and His disciples.

2023 Bishop's Lenten Appeal (BLA) Begins!

The 2023 BLA mailing was recently sent to parishioners. The theme is “My soul rejoices in the Lord,” which is shared with the second preparatory year of the Diocesan Jubilee. The BLA funds programs and ministries that serve thousands of people in our diocese. Through the inspiration of the BLA theme, let us joyfully make a pledge to support God's Kingdom in our diocese!
