Where is Saint Philip’s in the Hills?

Saint Philip’s is located on the northeast corner of River Road and Campbell Avenue at 4440 N. Campbell.

Where do I park?

There is plenty of parking in the north and east parking lots (shaded parking spots in the east lot). There are plenty of handicapped spots, spots for expectant mothers, and parking for new visitors.

What if we’re late?

Come on in — and if you don't have time to make breakfast or don’t have any clean dishes there is a parish breakfast every Sunday morning during the program year (September–May) at 8:00am!

What should I wear?

Tucson is a casual town, and Saint Philip’s is no exception. You will see all varieties of dress among all age groups. During the summer, you might want to bring a light wrap to offset the air conditioning in the Church.

Is there childcare?

Saint Philip’s offers nursery and childcare service every Sunday from 8:30am until 12:30pm. Toddlers and infants are provided a separate space with age-appropriate activities and a highly trained, professional staff.  With that said, your children are welcome in all parts of the church at any time!

There is also a “soft space” in the church designed for kids, with books, coloring materials, small toys, and the like, where many parents sit with their children during the service. The Rector here has young children and will make yours as welcome as he wants his to feel.


Visiting

Choosing to visit a new church can be intimidating and even a little frightening. Who knows what you will find? Will it be pledge Sunday? Will they try to make me join a committee? Will they mention Jesus once or twice? How long will the sermon be? Will I be welcome?

These and so many more questions will come up! So who is welcome at Saint Philip’s?

Father Robert and the Blessing of the Backpacks Service

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, rich, poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail, or could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or if your cat gives you a dirty look when you try to carry a tune. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail. We really don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope, have a fondness for Lutheran potlucks, grew up Episcopalian, or left Church young and are just starting to look back.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion” — we’ve been there too.

If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church (thank you for humoring her).

We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, and pilgrims. We welcome you all because all of us have found a welcome here and we hope that you will too.
