Pray and work for repentance and unity in Christ for our parish and country.  Don’t do the devil’s work by gossip or slander, whether in person or online.  Prepare for temptation and persecution, but be strong in Christ, His Mother, and all the Saints.  We live by Faith, not by Fear!

          In Christ,     Fr. Noah Bushelli

Welcome to St Philip Orthodox Church! 

Thank you for visiting our parish website.  We are grateful to God for His many blessings and we look forward to sharing them with you!

Located in the growing Philadelphia ex-urb of Souderton, Hilltown Township, Pennsylvania, Saint Philip is a vibrant, welcoming Orthodox Christian parish of the ancient Patriarchate of Antioch, where the disciples of Jesus were first called Christians (Acts 11:26).  We believe in and worship the Holy Trinity according to the unbroken Holy Tradition, most perfectly expressed in Holy Scripture.  Our services are celebrated in English.

We welcome the people of the Indian Valley and Bucks and Montgomery counties to join our parishioners, all ages and backgrounds, in worshiping the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and growing in the life in Christ and service to our neighbors.  

Besides an excellent choir leading the congregation in the ancient a capella chants of Byzantium, Russia, Georgia, and other Christian lands, we have many educational, service, and fellowship opportunities for all ages.

Though we are happy to offer this website and its many resources to you, we invite you to experience Orthodox Christianity more deeply.  St. Philip, our patron, said it very simply to his friend Nathaniel: "Come and see."

 

 

Reflections on Holy Scripture that explore the connections and continuity between God's self-revelation through His Prophets and Apostles and the ongoing life, faith, worship, and practice of the Orthodox Church.
