  • Father Fuller 25th Anniversary Celebration

    On June 10th, St. Philip Neri Catholic Church celebrated Father Timothy Fuller’s 25th Anniversary of priesthood. The celebration included Mass at the parish and a brunch reception accompanied by jazz music at the Reed Conference Center. Over 500 people were in attendance.

    Special guests included Father Anthony Chandler of Immaculate Conception in La Grange, Kentucky, Deacon Paul Albert of St. Matthew’s in Elk City, Oklahoma as well as many family members and personal friends of Father Fuller and hundreds of St. Philip Neri parishioners. Grace before the meal was presented by Father’s first grade teacher, Sister Theresa Margaret, who at the age of 97 is of the Carmelite Sisters and was joined by Sister Sylvia Negrete and Sister Barbara Joseph.

    The afternoon’s celebration included video tributes from St. Philip Neri Catholic school students, a personal message from Archbishop Coakley and touching tribute from parish staff on the sacrament of Holy Orders. Guest speakers included school principal, Brenda Tener who announced the number of sacraments Father Fuller has celebrated during his career as a priest. Deacon Norm Mejstrik, who has served St. Philip Neri as a deacon for the last 15 years, spoke to Father’s timeline as priest highlighting the many missions and parishes served in the Archdiocese.

    At the end of the celebration, Father Fuller addressed the assembly, “I am grateful to the Almighty God for these last 25 years of priesthood, especially in the graces of all the people who have come into my life. I will always carry those relationships with me."

    Father Fuller continues to lead and serve the parish and school of St. Philip Neri as well as holds the esteem title of Global Fellow for the international humanitarian agency, Catholic Relief Services. Most recently Father Fuller was given a special assignment as the Director of Seminarians for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.

  • 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal

    Please Make Your Gift to the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal “Do All Things for the Glory of God”

    During January, many parish families received a letter from Archbishop Coakley asking you to make a pledge to the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal.  We ask you to respond generously.

    The Appeal supports Archdiocesan ministries and services including those that are a great help to our parish. For example, Appeal funds support the education and formation of priests to serve in our parish. This year, the theme of the Appeal is “Do all things for the Glory of God.”  We all strive to live out our vocation as Blessed Stanley Rother did by doing everything in our lives for the glory of the lord. By financially supporting the ministries and services funded by the ACA, we help to extend God’s love to many, many others. 
     
    As you review the mailing from Archbishop Coakley, please note the ministries and services funded by the Appeal, including the ones that directly support the work of our parish. Please prayerfully consider a pledge based on your means and circumstances.

  • St Philip Neri Receives CFO Grant

    The Religious Education Department of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church in Midwest City received a Catholic Foundation of Oklahoma educational grant in the amount of $1,200.
    The monies were used to purchase several Chromebooks to aid religious educations instructors, in particular the RCIA and RCIC programs, in their weekly classes.

    St. Philip Neri recently built a $2.4 million Family Life Center complete with meeting rooms and included advanced technology such as smart televisions. The addition of Chromebooks allows catechists to cast lessons from their tablet to the television for easy access to online resources plus the ability to be environmentally friendly. St. Philip Neri Director of Religious Education, Laurann Donahue, explains, “Just last week we were able to watch a lesson on the sacrament of Reconciliation from formed.org without a DVD. We simply logged on and cast the lesson to the television which was captivating to our young audience.” Donahue continued, “Furthermore, we are saving on the cost of DVD purchases and presentation aids.”

    According to their website, The Catholic Foundation of Oklahoma awarded over $100,000 in grants in 2017 citing, “Whether textbooks or laptops, 'Investing in the Future of our Our Faith' remains our goal as we education the next generation of Catholic men and women.”
