Serving God’s Creatures


St. Philip Neri loves animals, too!
Like St. Francis, we at St. Philip Neri Church love animals. Especially Becky! Becky has inspired several animal-related ministries.  As we collect food for the food bank, we also collect pet food, pet supplies, and cash donations for First Coast No More Homeless Pets, Animal Care & Protective Services, and other animal organizations.  Would you like to adopt a new family member or foster a pet?  If so, contact Becky; she can help you find a new family member or provide details on becoming a foster parent.





“You think dogs will not be in heaven?  I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.” Robert Louis Stevenson

God Bless our pets!

Speaking of animals, on the Sunday nearest October 4, St. Philip Neri Church celebrates the Feast Day of St.  Francis.  When St. Philip Neri celebrates this Feast Day, be sure to bring your pets to be Blessed!  If you cannot transport your elephant, a picture of the elephant will do!

“I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind.”
