Celebrating the Triduum

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.

Palm Sunday Liturgy

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.

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.

Tree of Life: Race Talks

St. Philip’s Tree of Life is our effort to give back to organizations that benefit our community, a commitment we made as a part of our 2019 Annual Budget.
