Earth Day message from Anglican and Lutheran leaders

Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.—John 12:24

In recognition of Earth Day on April 22, 2017, we invite you to join us in praying for the humility and discipline to use Earth’s resources wisely and responsibly.

St. Philip's Spring Fair 2017

In 2017 the event will take place on Saturday, May 13th (9 am to 3 pm). All are invited to come meet local artisans displaying their handmade jewelry, painting, woodworking, pottery and other collectibles. Pick up some delicious homemade baking just in time for Mother's Day or perhaps a used book for your summer reading. In addition to hand-crafted works of art, delicious desserts and books you can find great bargains including a wide array of toys, clothing, household items & more! Fr. Jim will fire up his BBQ to make his holy hot dogs. For information about table rentals ($25) click here. The Spring Fair is a fund-raiser for St. Philip's church and the NDG Food Depot.

Black History Month: Meet the Community

This is a republication of “Meet The Community” from 2014 in celebration of Black History Month. Like many Anglican and Episcopal churches, Black people are an important part of St. Philip's parish family. This series is offered in respectful appreciation of their esteemed place in our Parish as well as an acknowledgment of the important role of Black people in churches across North America.

Black History Month (BHM) takes place in February each year and it is an opportunity for all people to celebrate those who have championed civil rights, to remember some very disturbing facts about the past and to acknowledge the social justice work that still needs to be done.

Christmas Letter

We pray daily, “Thy kingdom come”. Part of our identity as Christians, together with faith and love, is hope. We can see beyond our present, imperfect, fallen state, to imagine the beauty and joy of God's kingdom, of which the prophets have spoken poetically. We yearn for it, we hunger for it, and even more so when our life is filled with disappointments and setbacks.

St. Philip's Church Welcomes You This Christmas

These are uncertain and difficult times, and yet in Christmas, we are assured that a light still shines in this present darkness. A light that cannot be overcome. Jesus entered the world in weakness so that we might know God more fully and love one another more completely. The one who the universe could not contain was found lying in a simple feedbox in a stable on the outskirts of the city. Light shone in the darkness. Though the world keeps changing, God is unchanging, Gods love is unending and Gods love is for you. Wherever you come from, whoever you love, no matter what you think you have done to separate yourself from God. God still shines light into the dark places of our lives, bringing joy, forgiveness, and healing. Celebrate Gods love with us this Christmas.
