Join us in the Murphey Gallery at 12:45pm on Sunday, February 24th, for a special presentation with artist Suzanne Moore as part of our year hosting the Saint John's Bible.
Each first Sunday during the program year, the music program is proud to offer distinctive and moving choral works, performed with excellence, to the glory of God.
On First Sundays throughout 2018-2019, from 12:30-2:00pm, a lunch is provided and a speaker from a local organization is invited to give a presentation. Out of respect for what the many local agencies do with grace, humility, deep knowledge, and training, we invite the experts, and look for ways in which our vocation of bearing Christ’s light in the world might meet with their vocation.
Join us for a Pancake Supper, the Burning of the Palms, and the Burying of the Alleluia!

Every fifth Sunday, Saint Philip’s Recovery Ministry is proud to hold a twelve-step Eucharist with intentions for all those affected by addiction. Please join us!
Almighty God, whose dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other that the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life: Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ, that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
On Holy Wednesday, also known as "Spy" Wednesday, we will follow the Stations of the Cross at 5:30pm in the church, then gather in the Murphey Gallery for a simple supper and an introduction to the liturgies of Holy Week presented by our guest preacher for Triduum, the Rev'd Canon Scott Gunn. The dinner will be followed by a service of Tenebrae in the church.
Join us for an ancient service of chant and candlelight as we prepare to enter into the holy days of the Triduum - Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.
The Triduum begins, and we remember Christ's Last Supper with his disciples - his institution of the Eucharist, and his "new commandment" - that his followers should love each other as Christ himself loved them.
The Triduum continues on Good Friday with a solemn service commemorating Jesus' trial and crucifixion. There is no celebration of the Eucharist on this day - a stark illustration of Christ's death, and the weight of his absence. Communion is distributed from the reserved Sacrament - the last time it will be received until the Easter Vigil.
Join us for a family-friendly service of the Stations of the Cross - adults and children alike are invited to pray and reflect on the central events of Good Friday.
On Holy Saturday the Church is, as it were, at the Lord's tomb, meditating on his passion and death, and on his descent into hell, and awaiting his resurrection with prayer and fasting. This service of Morning Prayer calls us to reflect on the middle place between Christ's crucifixion and his resurrection. We will also hear together the words of "An Ancient Homily for Holy Saturday," an anonymous sermon from the fourth century.
