Tonight is first Wednesday confession in the church from 5-6pm.

Please pray for our second graders who will receive the sacrament of Holy Eucharist this Saturday, May 4.

There will be a special collection for the St. Philomena School Tuition Assistance Fund this weekend, May 4 & 5. This fund helps the parish provide scholarship dollars to families who send their children to our parish school. It is our practice and belief that any parish family who desires to send their children to St. Philomena School will not be turned away for lack of finances. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

Sr. Mary Rose Bingham, OP, from the Nashville, Dominicans will return to St. Philomena Parish in June 2019 to offer Catechesis of the Good Shepherd training for parents, teachers and catechists. The training will be offered for both level I and level II. The level I training is for those working with children ages 3-6 years of age and level II is training for those working with children 6-9 years of age. The training is open to non-St. Philomena parishioners and often draws a diverse crowd allowing for a fruitful collaboration with other programs. To learn more about or register for either training, please visit our website https://www.stphils.com/church/catechesis-of-the-good-shepherd-training/ .

The Scrip buying year for tuition ends on May 31, 2019. Purchases made on or before this date will be credited toward your tuition for 2019-20. Purchases made after that date will begin accumulating for 2020-21. If you have questions, contact the parish office or stop at the Scrip table after Mass. Rebate amounts will be available by July so you know your tuition adjustment. If this is your last child at SPS and you are attending PND, please let us know so we send the rebate to PND. Or, if your last child is graduating from PND, contact us to send the rebate to your child’s college. Remember, you can also designate your rebate to another family from St. Philomena if you no longer have children in school.
