Parish Mission Statement
Jesus Christ said to St. Philip the Apostle,
"Come follow Me."
As members of the parish community of St. Philip's, we seek to live as disciples of the Lord by living our faith through service to others.
Based on a strong faith, a guided hope and a well rooted love, we encourage all to walk that journey with Christ with humility and courage.
Parish Council is an advisory board for the Pastor as outlined by the Diocese of Harrisburg. During monthly meetings, September through May, Council members hear news surrounding parish projects, physical, social or religious and open the floor to questions and discussions. On all matters that require a recommendation from Council to the Pastor, an attempt is made to reach a consensus among Council members, or by a minimum two-thirds majority vote. Recently the council updated the bylaws, developed a mission statement and a tag line as well as offered support on existing matters and introduced new ideas.
Council members are elected for a 3 year team. One third of the membership is elected each year. A member may serve an additional term but not more than two consecutive terms. A member having served two terms may reapply after a one year absence from council. Our pastor and Parish Manager are ex-officio members. An elected officer may serve two consecutive terms in that office.
We are here to serve you! Let us know your concerns.
