A word from our pastor…..

…..And the St. Philip Neri Parish community warmly welcomes one and all once again.

Our patron, Saint Philip Neri, known as the “Apostle of Joy,” set an example for us as we show and share our happiness in God’s abundance and love.

We have been very fortunate for the 20 years that we have sponsored our festival, and it is our great pleasure to extend that celebration to include the whole community. We hope that you and your families, and friends too, will experience the joy and blessings that abound within our parish community.

“Come, Share our Joy!!”

Fr. John P. Giuliani, C.O.

Pastor, St. Philip Neri Catholic Church & Our Lady of Grace
