(Baptism Preparation)

Parents are the most important models of faith in the lives of their children. Pre-Jordan ministry provides an opportunity for parents to informally meet with other families preparing for their children's baptism and reflect on their own relationship with God. Considering their personal faith experience and sharing it with others helps parents assume their responsibility as Christian role models for their children.


Pre-Jordan class will be scheduled once monthly. Please call the Rectory office at 215-679-9275 for details.



Please Note: PREP Registration is closed for the 2019-2020 year except for Newly Registered Families.


We, the catechists and volunteers of St. Philip Neri’s Parish Religious Education Program answer Christ’s call by facilitating encounters with Christ for our children through sacrament preparation and teaching our children the basic truths of our faith.  Our goal is to support the catechesis that is taught in the home by the first leaders of faith formation, the parents and guardians of our students.

More Information


What is it?

The RCIA or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the Church's process of journeying with adults in their relationship with God, becoming familiar with Catholic teachings and practices and become acquainted with members of the parish.



Individuals interested in exploring and discerning membership in the Catholic Church meet with our RCIA Team on a weekly basis to discuss these teachings in light of Sacred Scripture and Tradition. This process is for non-Catholics who wish to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist. Also, Catholics who desire to have a deeper knowledge of the Catholic Faith are most welcome to participate.


Children over 7 years old who have not received the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist are invited to participate in a similar age-related program. Please contact the church office at for details.
