Come sew with us! Goal: 100 Backpacks for men and 100 Backpacks for women will be created for the clients who use the services of the EMO HIV Day Center. The backpacks will be created by friends of St Philip the Deacon church under the direction of Viola Horton. The packs will be filled with a 20 piece pre-assembled hygiene kit, and additional items such as socks, underwear, masks, washcloths, feminine hygiene products, all in various sizes. How a ministry…

Easter Morning Prayer and Coffee Hour, April 12, 11am We will gather via Zoom at 11am on the morning of April 12 using our service booklet.
While Easter is every Sunday, the Great Three Days—the Triduum—are like one great Sunday. We have created a service booklet that allows you to pray the three central days of the Christian year at home or with family. The Maundy Thursday liturgy is designed to be done over a meal, or after, as you choose. Good Friday and the Easter Vigil will be celebrated via Zoom.
Palm Sunday Service with help from the Diocese of Oregon Blessing of the Palms and Procession.
Join us online at 10am for Palm Sunday Liturgy. We will join via video the Diocesan Blessing of the Palms, and continue with Morning Prayer, and then share coffee hour.
Right now, Holy Week is almost upon us, a week we will spend at home. While this may seem strange to us, many of our Lenten and Holy Week practices began in the homes of early Christians, and only later grew into the magnificent services to which we have grown accustomed. At St. Philip, we will start by gathering over Zoom to celebrate the Liturgy of the Palms, and join with our sisters, brothers and friends across our Diocese throughout the week.
