From whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.  Ephesians 4:16

Welcome to Saint Philip Parish, a Roman Catholic Church, and a very active rural parish located in Melbourne, Kentucky, a small city nestled among the rolling hills along the Ohio River in Campbell County Ky.  St Philip is a member parish of the Diocese of Covington and has about two hundred families registered.  Saint Philip School is sponsored by the church, and has been in existence since 1909.  It was begun and staffed by the Siste
rs of Divine Providence, who still reside on the property to this day.

Our Pastor, Father Robert Rottgers, is a Campbell County Kentucky native.  He is a generous and kindly man, willing to serve in any way he can as shepherd of the parish.  He has his "feet on the ground," and is "comfortable to be with." 

Parish Life at St. Philip offers something for everyone.  You can be as active within the parish as you like.   To learn more check out one of the many organizations Saint Philip has to offer, from the Altar Society to the Worship Committee, or Boosters to the Board of Total Catholic Education (BOTCE).  There's something for you!  
Please come and attend one of Saint Philip's masses in our beautiful church and feel free to contact the school for more information on classes and registration.  All are welcome.

Service Learning Project with the "Bag Lady"

You've never heard of "Plarn"?  Ask a St. Philip student!  They'll be able to tell you how Shari Petrie, "The Bag Lady" uses "Plarn" to recycle plastic bags saving them from ending up in a landfill, while at the same time helping local homeless people stay warm.  Check out the St. Philip student's service learning project featured on the Children's Inc. blog.
