Building, Responsibility, Equality and Dignity (B.R.E.A.D.)
B.R.E.A.D. is a faith based organization. It takes Scripture and applies it to today’s world: to psychology, to faith community, social ills, individuals in position of power, and to those whose lives are impacted by political decisions. Throughout history, it has fallen upon the people of the faith community to be the voice of concern, to hold our leaders accountable, when they fail to care for the least of us, our brothers and sisters.
St Philip’s food pantry is well and thriving. To date, the pantry has served over 12,000 men, women and children. In addition to our regular ministries at Christmas and Thanksgiving, we also provide the community with gift certificates and food baskets. Volunteers of our parish provide the twice-weekly help for our food pantry.
We need your help! The Food Pantry needs volunteers who can work weekends or evening hours to stock the Food Pantry, do written reports and other functions of the Pantry.
The first Sunday of each month is Food Sunday. Each time you go grocery shopping, remember God’s hungry children. Please bring your food, toilety or monetary donations for the pantry. Specific items needed include paper towels, bleach, body soap, toilet paper, tooth paste, deodorant, etc. If you can volunteer, please call the church office-614.253.2771. Our pantry depends on YOU!
Friends of St. Philip
Friends of St. Philip was started in April 1986 by eight members of our parish. Once a month they prepare hot meals for the people at the Friends of the Homeless Shelter. The food is prepared at the church, taken to the shelter, and served by the Friends of St. Philip. To date, over 10,000 meals have been served to men, women and children at the shelter.
Widow’s Mite Fund
The group was created in memory of Hazel Sydner, a devoted member of the church. This fund provides money for books for college students. There is a single fund-raiser each year, which provides the necessary funds to assist students in college.
