Welcome Ablaze: St. Philip’s Young Adults Ministry!

  • A new young adult group has formed within the parish. Ablaze is the name of St. Philip's Young Adult Ministry. Upon choosing a name for the group, we thought to follow our roots of "The Light of the Youth" which is the motto of St. Philip's Youth Ministry. We wanted to go a step further than a "light" to signify our growth and maturity in our faith as young adults. "Ablaze" is a large light, an overwhelming fire that consumes everything it touches. So too should be our faith. As St. Catherine of Sienna explained, "If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze”. For more info about the group, click the logo above to visit the group’s website.

    The Dead Theologians Society

    St. Philip's Youth Ministry is proud to announce the debut of The Dead Theologian's Society (DTS) at our parish. This Society is a Catholic apostolate for high school age teens. Through the Saints of yesterday, DTS inspires the youth of today to become the saints of tomorrow. Its motto is "Dead to the World, Alive in Christ." Members will learn about the lives of the Saints using Catholic prayers, Eucharistic Adoration, the Rosary, and the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Our parish is currently the first and only active NJ chapter of the Society. All high schoolers are invited to attend. Meetings will be held monthly on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 2pm unless otherwise noted. Parishioners who would like to support the Dead Theologian's Society are asked to contact Youth Minister Justin Aughey at the Rectory.
