“Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.” – Pslam 75:1

As we move into the 75th year of ministry, we are declaring 75 Years of WONDROUS WORKS for St. Philip’s School and Community Center with plans for special events through December 2021, the publication of three books, and more.  We have formed a Diamond Club Committee comprised of current and former trustees, ambassadors, and loyal friends to lead the way in ensuring every effort posed over the next year is successful in raising awareness and resources for the St. Philip’s ministry.
