After 20 years of service, Pat Scott will leave her post as Mobile Meals Coordinatorat St Philip Neri, effective December 31. Her example of dedicated service and stewardship is appreciated by all involved in the Mobile Meals ministry. We are in need of a person or personsto take on the leadership responsibilities for Mobile Meals every Wednesday. Each week, hot meals are prepared and delivered to homebound individuals in our community. The Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the shopping, cooking and delivery for Wednesday meals and working with the Area Coordinator when new recipients are added. Can you help with this worthwhile ministry so that St Philip Neri will not have to stop its involvement after over 40 years of participation? For more details, please call the Church office 737-4476.
Please remember that the Annual Catholic Appeal is much different than a one-time special collection. It is a pledge campaign where you can make a gift payable in installments.
The ACA theme, "God’s Light shines through Us," was selected to remind us that our contributions to the Annual Catholic Appeal enable the funded ministries and services to share God’s love with many others in our parish and our Archdiocese.
Each pledge makes a difference! Your generous support enables our Archdiocese to deliver needed ministries and services.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.

Note - the ACA Appeal was formerly known as ADF.

Since we first opened in 1954, our goals have remained steadfast. Our mission is to serve families in developing and nurturing the whole child to achieve academic excellence. The School community provides a safe, Catholic Christian environment in which each child can grow to be a contributing member of the Church and society.
For more than 60 years, St Philip Neri has carried on a tradition of excellence, preparing students for upper-level coursework while building a strong foundation of faith. Jesus Christ will always remain at the heart of all we do, whether in academics, athletics, or community service. St Philip Neri is more than a place to learn, it is a place to grow.

Many people expressed strong interest in plots and pairs of plots, and so far no one has asked for something wanted by another. For assistance in selecting a plot, call the church office and they or Larry Hopper will help you. A Cemetery Map shows the plots, but you must see Larry or visit the office to see which are available. Lots numbered in red are currently being sold, those numbered in blue are in a wooded area to be sold later. Orange and green shaded areas indicate walkways and areas reserved for the altar, Columbarium, and trees.
Plots are $500 each (no tax), please call the church office before you come down or mail in a check.
