At St. Philip’s our motto is “Everyone is welcome, and we really mean it.” This is never more true than at Christmas, when we celebrate Christ’s birth and the renewal of the Christian year. So please know you are welcome here, whether you’re “church shopping” or just want to have a church connection at this special time of year.

 This year Christmas Eve is also the fourth Sunday of Advent. Holy Eucharist will also be celebrated at 8:15 am and 10:15 am.

• Wed., Dec. 20, 7 p.m. – Longest Night Healing Eucharist

• Sun., Dec. 24, 4 and 6 p.m. – Christmas Eve Service. Join us forChristmas Carols 15 minutes before !

• Sun., Dec. 25, 10:15 a.m. – Christmas Day Service.

St. Philip’s isn’t just a place to pray. Reaching out to help others, both near and far, is an important part of who we are. For example, over the past few years we have collected thousands of pairs of new socks for the homeless in our community, who number about 425 in Bucks County. Jesus was homeless, which makes this “ministry of socks” feel especially meaningful. So please feel free to bring a gift of new socks with you when you visit, and we’ll make sure they get to a homeless person who can use them. Help us kindle the Christmas spirit at St. Philip’s all year long!
