Project Description

Advent & Christmas at St. Philip

We have amazing, life changing things going on at St. Philip through out the seasons of  Advent & Christmas. Just as God becomes visible to us in Christ through the incarnation, this is the time of year when the mission of St. Philip is most evident. May we “joyfully celebrate the Eucharist as a community and share and proclaim the word of God to our neighbors.”

Advent Challenge

We invite you to join our Advent Challenge on Flocknote. Flocknote is the service St. Philip uses to “proclaim and share the Word of God with our neighbors” via email and text messages. Each day of Advent, at 2pm, participants will receive a short daily encouragement from the USCCB’s Advent Calendar. Challenges are in English and Spanish. If you would like to participate, text PRAYSP to 84576 or join using our form below.
