Visit mdcathcon.org and click on the MD Advocacy Network button to join today.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Volunteers are needed to serve the children of the parish by becoming a Catechist or Aide for Religious Education.  Is God calling you to help share His love and help the children learn and embrace our beautiful Faith?  No teaching experience is necessary and you are not expected to have all the answers either.  Our children are ready and eager to learn more about the love that Jesus has for all of us and how we can come together as members of the Body of Christ to help each other learn more about the Catholic faith.  Without dedicated volunteers we would not be able to offer Religious Education to our children.  Please pray and ask God if He is calling you to serve in the Ministry of Catechesis.  Contact Marlen Coles with further questions at stphiliptheapostlereled@yahoo.com or leave a message at the rectory.


The Movement of Hope group of Blessed Mother Rosa Gattorno meets once every month, usually on the second Saturday, after the Mass, Novena, and Rosary, in the church.  Meetings are held in the Convent Conference Room.  All are invited to join Sister Rezan in this devotional to the Foundress of the Daughters of St. Anne.


VOCATION PRAYER: Dear God, bless our family life and nurture us with your love and care. Help us to be attentive to the needs of one another. Guide us to reach beyond our home in service to others. We ask you to open the hearts of our children to hear your voice, to know their true vocation, and to find true happiness in you.  Amen.
