St. Philip Neri - 500th Anniversary

In 2015, the Oratorian family around the world marks St. Philip's quincentenary - the 500th anniversary of his birth in July 1515. Our local observance of this milestone began with the Solemnity of St. Philip Neri on Tuesday, May 26, 2015. Our celebration continued with A barbecue after our Eucharistic Holy Hour on July 19th. More exciting activities are planned in the months to come!
