Liturgy (Page 2)
While Easter, the resurrection, is celebrated every Sunday, Holy Week is like one great Sunday. It begins with a triumphal (perhaps sarcastically so) entrance into Jerusalem, and continues through the Great Three Days—the Triduum.

COME JOIN US!

Last Sunday (Jan 30th) a group of St. Philip folks walked the block around Matt Dishman Community Center, observing the weather, the creatures, the land that surrounds our church. The purpose of a Walking Meditation is to use all our senses to experience our parish neighborhood at a deeper level – the land, the trees and plantings, the creatures, and the neighbors who reside close to STPD.

Our Annual Meeting is woven into our Sunday Eucharist as a reminder that it is the work of every other day of the week that makes our work together on Sundays possible, and it is our work on Sunday to celebrate in gratitude and hope the many ways in which God works through us as individuals and as a community.

At St. Philip, we reflect an awareness that going deeper into God is about responding to God’s work and play in our lives and the world around us now. A deep and authentic spiritual life is rooted in responding with God and God’s prophets to this place, to this time, to this neighborhood, in this body (and bodies). Come, join us, as we continue to hear the stories of God told to children and elders alike. Wonder with us. Journey with us.
