St Philip Neri Religious Education Is faith formation that is centered around our Catholic values.  We embrace all and promote full participation in the church.  Of course, the first catechists in any child’s life are the family members with whom he or she resides.  The home should provide a place where we learn to understand and live our faith. Attendance of Holy Mass (Sundays and Holy Day of Obligation) is to ensure your child is participating in and celebrating Christ’s resurrection.
