The parish has donated much money, time, food, and articles of clothing. Each year, we have a time when we collect coats, socks, shoes and underwear so that the "guests" of Manna House can have warmth from the colder temperatures outside. ​ Manna House of Memphis offers hospitality to homeless and poor guests. Hospitality includes welcoming of guests, and the offering of basic services such as clothing, hygiene items, showers, and serving coffee or other beverages. Staff and volunteers seek to interact with their guests and will learn their names and their stories. ​ Manna House is grounded in the spirit of the Catholic Worker Movement and thus seeking to welcome all guests from the streets with a spirit of hospitality that respects their dignity as human beings. In offering hospitality, Manna House affirms that hosting guests involves not only provides needed material goods, but more importantly honors guests’ humanity and personhood. As stated on MHM website: “We are not a social service agency; rather we are persons welcoming other persons to share ourselves, our gifts, and gifts we have received from others. We seek to know our guests as persons with names, histories, and hopes. We seek to be stewards of God’s graciousness, not possessors of power and privilege dispensing charity from above. We seek to build relationships and we are not out to “save” people or remake them in our own image. We recognize and repent of our racism, classism, sexism, and heterosexism, and we seek to create a community of hospitality in which all are welcomed as children of God.” ​ The mission : Hospitality to homeless and poor persons in the city of Memphis; Advocacy for persons on the streets; Opposition to violence–on the streets, by the police, through imprisonment, executions & war; Witness to the reign of God. ​ If you want to learn more about the Manna House of Memphis, donate money or become a volunteer for this worthwhile ministry, we invite you to visit their WEBSITE: Relief for Victims of the Recent Natural Disasters Considering a way to assist the victims of the recent natural disasters in the U.S. and abroad?

  • Coffee Hour | St. Philip Episcopal

    Our "Coffee Hour" St Philip is known for its hospitality and “coffee hour” following the Sunday worship services is a small way to make a big difference by welcoming our guests and visitors. This is usually much less than an hour, but sharing a cup of coffee and a donut among those with whom we worship deepens our relationships with others as a faith community. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Parish Hall immediately following the services. Our Coffee Hour Hosts make this happen! This ministry comes with minimal Sunday morning responsibilities and is always looking for volunteers to help. If you are interested, contact the Parish office:

  • Vestry | St. Philip Episcopal

    ​ What is the Vestry? ​ The Vestry is a group of elected congregational leaders within the congregation of an Episcopal church. Its basic responsibility is to: Help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; Support the mission by word and deed; Elect a rector when the need arises; Ensure effective organization and planning; Ensure adequate resources in leadership and in financial stewardship; Manage resources effectively; Determine that appropriate programs, policies, and procedures have been developed and are followed; Assess its own performance. It has some similarities to a board of directors, but it is important to remember that this ministry of leadership is exercised within a church. The success of a congregation is not measured in terms of numbers of members or size of the endowment, but rather in the degree to which it is working toward fulfillment of the mission of the Church. ​ Vestry Current Vestry The Rev.
