Renewal Committee

The Renewal Committee at St. Philips has evolved as the organization that offers opportunities for the parish to move closer to the Lord outside of the regularly scheduled Masses. They plan and facilitate the Retreats at Advent and Lent. They have hosted Divine Mercy Sunday and led the Divine Mercy Novena during Lent before the Station of the Cross on Fridays. They bring in guest speakers for our spiritual enrichment. In December we heard from Elva Hurst do a Chalk Talk presentation on the Spiritual Traditions of Christmas. These gatherings are usually family oriented, low cost or free and offer refreshments as well. The Renewal committee helps in other areas of the Church life such as arranging the crowning of our Blessed Mother in May. If you are interested in helping or have an idea or suggestion for a parish presentation, please contact Bob Trowbridge at 293-1021
