St. Philip Neri celebrated the final Mass of its centenary celebrations last week. The Mass was concelebrated by former pastors, and the president of the Paulist Order, Paulist Father Michael McGarry. More than 250 people attended the Mass.

The year of celebration, said organizers, celebrated the parish's centennial, but also its 100 years of church leadership by Paulist priests.

The year of celebration began on May 26, 2012, with a special centennial Mass celebrated by Archbishop John Vlazny.


Rose Wolfe found her home here in 1984. She said the discovery changed her life and gave her direction and hope. This parish is a safe place to ask questions and to voice anger of past hurts, perhaps inflicted by the church, Wolfe said. She travels from Happy Valley to volunteer and worship at St. Philip Neri.

“For the first time I learned what it meant to be loved unconditionally by God, and people here have nurtured me every step of the way,” parishioner Rose Wolfe told the Catholic Sentinel in June 2012. "That loving acceptance and encouragement can make a person believe anything is possible."
