Telling our Stories

We would like to hear stories about the life of St. Philip, its members, and the way we have been a vital presence in the life of our community for over 100 years. Anna Ziegler is helping organize a history project that includes Hope Keller, who will help digitize our photo collection, Paula Webb and Faye Powell, who will help consolidate what we already have, and Cheryl Braginsky, a trained journalist and storyteller. 

Our hope is to create an ongoing exhibit, both physical and digital, of the stories and community engagement that has made this parish what it is!

Cheryl will be reaching out to you to ask for your time and memories. Please, tell us your story!

The Story Group will group will meet on Feb 20th to develop a plan to gather and record (in many forms of media) the stories of our beloved community. Join them via zoom on Sat Feb 20 at 3pm. All are welcome. Use Zoom link or dial in:
