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.


Are you interested in becoming Catholic or completing your Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist and/or Confirmation)?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey of faith. It is the process through which adults prepare to become fully initiated members of the Catholic Church. The roots of the RCIA process can be traced back to the ancient early days of the Church. The RCIA as we know it today was revised and mandated for use in the Church following the Second Vatican Council.

Who can be a part of this journey?

  • Someone who has never been baptized.
  • Someone who has been baptized in another faith tradition, and who wishes to join the Catholic faith.
  • Someone who has been baptized a Catholic, but has not received the Sacraments of Holy Communion and/or Confirmation.
  • Fully initiated members of the Catholic Church who are also encouraged to participate as sponsors or to further their own knowledge and understanding of Church teachings.
