Here at St. Philip’s, we invite you to be a part of our church community. We hold weekly and monthly events so that we may learn more about our Lord together. Below are a few of our regular events. See our church calendar for dates and times.
Theology on Tap
Theology on Tap is our monthly book club.
Once a month we fellowship together at Macado's restaurant in Blacksburg on 922 University Blvd.
Each month we will read a selected book and discuss it. Fr. Miller will act as moderator for our discussions.
The next Theology on Tap will be on Sunday, December 5 at 5:00pm. The group will discuss Joy to the World by Scott Hahn. You can buy your copy on Amazon.
We are excited to start Christian Formation classes here at St. Philip’s! Beginning Sunday, September 12, we will offer three groups of study that will meet from 10:00am-10:45am prior to Mass. Please see below for more information.
Pre-school: Ages 3-5
The 3-5 year olds will begin the year studying the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the canticles that are sung during Mass each week. Our lesson will consist of previewing the Gospel Lesson for that Sunday beginning in Advent. We will travel throughout the church calendar, learning each season and its associated color. It will be taught by Trish Miller and she will be assisted by Annie Miller.
Grade School: Ages 6+
Christian Formation for the grade school class (ages 6 and up) will focus on the Ten Commandments, especially on what they teach us about God and how they form our Christian lives. Starting in Advent we will examine the life of our Lord Jesus Christ in the gospel accounts and how he calls us to be his followers.
Christian Formation for the adult class will study books of the Bible exegetically. If you have any questions, please see Fr. Paul!
What is Anglicanism? (Catechesis)
Mass is the heart of our traditional Anglican worship on Sundays. Mass is available at 11:00am and Weekly Mass is available Wednesdays at noon unless otherwise stated by our calendar.
Evensong in the Anglican tradition is the evening prayer service filled with beautiful music. We hold an Evensong service several times throughout the year and usually take up an offering for a local charity. Check our church calendar to see when our next Evensong service will be held.
The word Catechesis means religious instruction given to a person in preparation for Christian baptism or confirmation, typically using a catechism. Catechesis is a study for all who desire to learn more about the Christian faith including church history, matters of doctrine, the ancient creeds and how the earliest of Christians interpreted the faith.
We invite you to join our study whether you are already a Christian or someone interested in church membership or simply desire to learn more.
Please keep an eye out for an announcement regarding the start date of the next Catechesis class.
We invite you to worship with us throughout the week. Please join us for Morning Prayer at the church from 7:15am-7:35am Monday-Thursday.
