Worship

Services

Worship is central to our parish — it is where we gather to celebrate our faith, express joy, renew hope, rekindle vision, and prepare for the tasks ahead.

Generally, our services reflect time-honored and traditional rituals — a rich convergence of art, music, scripture, and the spoken word.

Those who are accustomed to receiving Communion at their home church (of any denomination) are welcome to receive at St. Philip’s. All are invited forward at Communion time to receive a blessing.

During July 2017, please note our summer service schedule!
