Where can I park?
While St. Philip’s does not have a dedicated parking lot of its own, there are many places to park nearby: Wilson Avenue, the gravel lot next to the Oddfellows’ Hall, Progress Street (on Saturday and Sunday only), and the city lot (free after 5 pm Monday – Saturday and all day on Sunday). It’s important not to park anywhere marked as Town of Blacksburg permit parking only or blocking driveways; cars parked in these spots without proper permits may be towed. On Wednesdays, parking on Wilson Avenue is allowed for church events, and the city lots are free after 5 pm.
Do you have a student ministry?
While we do not have a separate student ministry at this time, we welcome students from area colleges and universities to join us in our parish life through worship, study, and service opportunities. We’re a small but growing parish, so students have the opportunity to build relationships with others of all ages. Students may be especially interested in our Wednesday noon Eucharist, Life Together (Wednesday evening dinner, prayer, and Bible study), Theology on Tap, and Christian Formation (Sunday morning before Mass, 10AM). For more information please click here and check out our calendar.

How do I join St. Philip’s?
We typically welcome new members to St. Philip’s twice a year when our Bishop visits. We offer catechesis classes covering the basics of the Anglican faith in the months leading up to the Bishop’s visit. If you’re interested in joining St. Philip’s, please contact Father Miller.
