Christmas Eve Offering
On Christmas Eve, Saint Philip's commits to using all of the money put in the plate at our five Christmas Eve services to serve the under-served and to support those on the margins. We hope that if you are able to give that you will do so generously knowing that it is going to be used to change the lives of those in need.
