Welcome to Saint Philip of Jesus Catholic Church

St. Philip of Jesus partners with Brooks Academy to open a new elementary school: Brooks Academy at St. Philip of Jesus!

St. Philip of Jesus Catholic Church was founded in 1914 specifically to address the needs of the Hispanic community in the south-central part of San Antonio.  Since its inception the parish has supported generations of local families, our parish size is roughly 700 families.  Our average weekly collection scarcely provides to pay the operational costs of our humble parish, but with dedication and loyalty our parishioners devoutly offer their talents and resources.  Geographically we are located in a part of the city that is predominantly Hispanic; therefore we are a bilingual community that seeks inclusiveness and hospitality.  Our communal worship is Christ-centered; that is, central to our faith is the celebration of the Sacred Liturgies, specifically the Word of God and the Holy Eucharist.
