St. Philip’s Youth & Sunday School


St. Philip’s Youth — “SPY" 

All youth from 8th through 12th Grade meet with Fr. Mike on Sunday afternoons to discuss questions of faith, spirituality, and how scripture fits in their lives and informs their lives. S.P.Y. is safe space for the youth to discus their spiritual journey. S.P.Y. also studies the Basics of Confirmation, including church history, liturgy, Bible study, and diocesan projects. 

Volunteering at Sunday Supper, the Ardmore Soup Kitchen, wrapping gifts for the Foster Children’s Gift Program, and an annual spiritual retreat are areas of outreach and mission in which S.P.Y. participates.

Fellowship and team-building events include sponsoring the Parish Pumpkin Carving in October, bowling, trivia night, rock climbing, and more.

S.P.Y. members are encouraged to invite their classmates and neighbors to join them for the Sunday meetings with Fr. Mike as well as to the team-building events held throughout the year.


Junior Youth Sunday School: Godly Play, Celebrate and Youth Fun Nights

Junior Youth Sunday School starts at 10 a.m. to coincide with the 10 a.m. Mass. The children will re-enter the regular service for Mass. 

The age groups will be: 

~ Pre-k and Kindergarten doing Godly Play. Godly Play is a creative, imaginative approach to Christian formation and spiritual guidance.

~ 1st Grade – 3rd Grade will participate in the new Celebrate Program.

~ 4th Grade – 6th Grade will participate in the Celebrate Sunday School, plus one Sunday a month they will learn something special about the Episcopal church.

A Youth Fun Night is held one Sunday night a month and gives the children another opportunity to gather as a community of faith and friends and have fun.
