"The World Which Made St. Philip Neri" - A Series of Talks in Washington, D.C.

Beginning on January 27, St. Thomas Apostle Parish in Washington D.C. will offer a six-part series of talks on “The World Which Made St. Philip Neri”, exploring the relationship of St. Philip to the religious orders and movements of his time. Bringing together a Dominican, a Carmelite, and a Jesuit to discuss St. Philip’s historical connections with each of their orders, the series will also include presentations by members of the Oratorian Community of St. Philip Neri, a community in formation for the Oratory in the Archdiocese of Washington. Each talk will take place at 7 pm in the Parish Library.

“ST PHILIP NERI, rapt unto God, in the Host sees Jesus Christ bless those who are in prayer.” St. Philip was a great friend and admirer of the Dominican Order, and used to attend solemn liturgies of various kinds, Mass and Office, at their main church in Rome, Santa Maria sopra Minerva.
