Bulletin for Sep. 2, 2018

O Holy Apostle Philip,
Intercede with the merciful God
That he may grant our souls forgiveness of sins.


Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory to Him forever! + Slava Isusu Christu! Slava i vo viki!

From the Fathers of the Church …

St. Cyril of Alexandria

Therefore the first commandment teaches every kind of godliness. For to love God with the whole heart is the cause of every good. The second commandment includes the righteous acts we do toward other people. The first commandment prepares the way for the second and in turn is established by the second. For the person who is grounded in the love of God clearly also loves his neighbor in all things himself. The kind of person who fulfills these two commandments experiences all the commandments.


Last Sunday, 56 souls came to pray at St. Philip’s, our tithes to the Lord were $, candles $. Thank you for supporting our church, may God bless you abundantly for your generosity. Please consider making St. Philip’s parish a part of your estate planning.
