We are delighted to
welcome newcomers to
St. Philip's Episcopal Church!
Many of our parishioners came to St. Philip's as young people or adults. Some were already Episcopalians; some were even new to Christianity. From wherever you have come, we welcome you on your spiritual journey.
Our parish includes young and old; wealthy and those of modest means; black, brown, and white; gay and straight; married and single; and those with children or not. Our parishioners come from the city, the suburbs, and the rural routes of the Ardmore area.
We celebrate and embrace the diversity of St. Philip's parish. Everyone is welcome!
If you have not attended an Episcopal service before, please feel free to come to one of our Sunday services. During the program year, our 9 a.m. service is a casual family service and easy to follow. At the 10: 30 service is a traditional Episcopal service. An usher will give you a program that includes directions for the service.
On Sundays during the summer months we have a single service at 9:30 a.m. and alternate between the family style of worship and the traditional Episcopal service.
If you are baptized, please come forward for communion and participate by partaking of the bread and wine, or the body and blood of Christ. All are invited to the altar to receive a blessing.
In your pew and on the information tables you will also find a small welcome card for you to complete so that you can be included in our regular newsletter mailings. If you would like to be contacted by a member of the clergy, there is a place to indicate that as well. After the service has ended, take a moment to introduce yourself to our clergy.
After our Sunday services there are coffee and food available in our Parish Hall. This is an opportunity for you to mingle, introduce yourself, and ask questions about St. Philip's.
