Food Pantry Needs - Thank you for your past donations! We are again in need of filling our shelves…we are looking for canned vegetables, meat and fruit, cereal, pasta and sauce, and peanut butter and jelly. Please bring your donations to the church office during the hours of 10am-2pm Monday through Friday. Alternatively, you can help by writing a check to St. Philip’s and note “Food Pantry” on the memo line. We always appreciate your generosity!
Diocese of Maryland Legacy Society ~ The Legacy Society is an opportunity for churches to recognize persons who have remembered their church in their will and estate plans. We encourage all parishes to establish a Legacy Society as a part of their development planning. We also have an All Saints Diocesan-wide Legacy Society which honors persons who have remembered either their parish or the Diocese at large in their will and estate plans. Your name is published in the Diocese of Maryland’s convention booklet and you will be invited to a service and reception honoring each member this fall, where both Bishops will present you with a Diocesan Legacy Society Pin. If you are interested or want more information please see John Parham or Pat McGrath.
