The annual Blessing Mass, hosted by the Special Needs Ministry, will be at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church at 9:15AM on Sunday February 23, 2020.


The Blessing Mass focuses on our family and our community, celebrating the uniqueness and talents that each member brings into our lives recognizing the diversity that is so prevalent within not only our families but also our parishioners.


So regardless of how society views an individual, the Blessing Mass welcomes all and embraces each one as a child of God – without whom our family would be incomplete.


Every one of us knows of someone who is:


         (individuals who once cared for us and now we need to return the favor)

Physically challenged

         (individuals who make our families and communities stronger)

Spiritually in need of our Lord’s grace and peace

         (individuals who suffer in silence)

A caregiver

         (individuals who truly sacrifice themselves for the sake of another)

Suffering due to life’s circumstances

         (e.g. loss of a job, loss of a loved one, worries about school)


The ‘Blessing Mass – All are Welcome’ is open to all regardless of whether you are a parishioner or even a nonCatholic – all are welcome! Following the Blessing mass will be a Community Fair with resources, games and food. We encourage you to attend and to bring your family and friends to join in this celebration of gratitude and thanksgiving for those who our Lord has placed in our lives.
