We are very blessed to be part of a parish which offers us many opportunities to grow in faith. Below are just a few of our current options. Whether you have never been to a bible study or it’s been a long time, please consider joining one. We currently have bible studies with either the Little Rock or the Ascension Press series. They are offered on various days and times and the topics change and vary as well. If you are not familiar with either of the programs, they are presented from different perspectives but equally valuable. There is no fee for any bible study, but books are available and the cost will vary.

If you would like to sit in on a session, or have any questions, please contact Eileen Koch at 215-696-2089 or preciousbo@yahoo.com.

In addition, we have a new opportunity for men of the parish. Please consider attending Into the Breach per below!

Watch for Faith Formation on our parish website, or our Saint Philip Neri Catholic Parish Facebook page!

Into the Breach:

Men…do you feel like you are under attack as a believer in God?  SPN is proud to offer a new Program called “Into the Breach”. 

It is a call to battle for Catholic men urging us to embrace wholeheartedly masculine virtues in a world in crisis.  Inspired by the Apostolic Exhortation for Catholic Men written by Bishop Olmsted of Phoenix, the Knights of Columbus produced a twelve (12)-Episode Video Series which seeks to answer the question of what it means to be a man and how to live as a man in today’s world.

Beginning Tuesday – March 7th, we will meet for twelve (12) Sessions facilitated by Cameron Bowser with Deacon Mike Franks supporting.  By joining together in brotherhood, men receive the support they need to grow in virtue and to take action to serve Christ and others.  We hope that this Series helps you to step “Into the Breach”! 

The meetings are limited to ten (10) men; class is filling up….only 2 – 4 slots maximum remain. Please call Cameron now at: 215.679.5764 or email at: Cbowser2@gmail.com.
