This Ministry exists to provide for the spiritual and material needs within our parish family, as well as, those within our surrounding community.

(Pastor directly recruits members for this Ministry.) The goal of this Ministry is to invite and connect people in our parish family and to bring them into a deeper spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this, in part, by creating a pleasant and attractive environment in the church building. We also develop creative outreach toward newly registered parishioners, and encourage people to volunteer in our parish Ministries. As the name suggests, this Ministry seeks to cast a net and “catch” parishioners who would like to feel more a part of the Saint Philip Neri Community.
Healing Prayer Teams
(Pastor will meet with volunteers who indicate an interest in this Ministry.) Prayer Teams, of two or three members, meet after each Mass on the first weekend of the month to pray for individual parishioners’ physical and emotional needs. Teams are available for half hour sessions by special appointment. The Lord encourages us to “ask for what we need”, and this Ministry strives to help those in need to do just that!
