– John 12:26.
A Service-Oriented Parish
St. Philip Neri Church is a service-oriented parish with ministries and groups for all ages.
Our more than 50 ministries are grouped into five categories: Liturgy & Worship, Faith Formation & Education, Prayer & Spiritual Growth, Service & Outreach, and Parish Family Life. Whether you are interested in serving those in need in our local community, passing on the Catholic faith to children or taking part in the Mass, there is a place for you. See a full list of ministries in our 2019 – 2020 Ministry of Stewardship Book.
These prayerful ministries and programs invite parishioners to raise their hearts and minds to God in prayer and enrich their spiritual lives. They support individuals on their journeys to the fullness of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and are designed to build a vibrant faith community of disciples who are equipped to proclaim and share the good news of Christ.
The Formation and Religious Education programs at St. Philip Neri Church are designed to help our youth learn and participate in their faith, grow spiritually and ultimately to support adults in raising His disciples in the Catholic Faith.
The Youth Ministry program focuses on helping our youth to embrace the Catholic faith, to spiritually prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation and to support answering the call to discipleship.
The Social Justice Ministry seeks to help parishioners see the challenges of modern society – poverty, homelessness, immigration, racism, globalization – through the lens of our Catholic faith.
The celebration of the Eucharist is central to our faith community at St. Philip Neri Church, with this traditional practice enabling us to worship and live as faith-filled Catholics. The Liturgical Ministries offer parishioners the opportunity to fulfill a special role in Eucharistic celebrations during daily and weekend Masses and other liturgical events.
As Christians, we are called to be disciples of Jesus. St. Philip Neri Service and Outreach Ministries and Organizations reach out to people, both within the parish and in the larger community, who may be challenged by injustices or are feeling powerless to change the circumstances in their lives. By aiding others with their spiritual and material necessities, Catholics grow in conformance to Christ and ultimately receive His Divine mercy.

Community – in families and in the parish – is basic and essential to living a fully Christian life. Parish Family Life Ministries and Organizations at St. Philip Neri Church seek to build a sense of community and belonging by drawing parishioners together for mutual support, activities, celebration and growth.
