St Philip’s Outreach and Mission

St Francis Center
On the third Saturday of every month a group from St. Philips volunteers time at the St. Francis Center, a day shelter that provides services for homeless individuals in the Denver metro area. Parishioners collect toiletries, socks, underwear, jeans, shirts, towels and other necessities throughout the year for distribution to those in need. The St. Francis Center is located at 2323 Curtis St., Denver, CO 80205 and is open daily from 6:00am to 6:00pm.

Douglas/Elbert Task Force
St. Philips Church collects non perishable food stuffs and toiletries on a weekly basis for the Douglas/Elbert Task Force. Parishioners also provide Easter and Thanksgiving food boxes and periodically make cash donations. The Task Force is located in Castle Rock, CO at 1638 Park St.

Dinner at the Rock
On the second Wednesday of every month St. Philips parishioners assist the Church of the Rock to prepare and serve a hot meal to the Castle Rock community. The meal is provided free of charge to all comers.

Kairos Prison Ministry
Men’s and women’s Kairos teams from St. Philips join other Christian groups to provide outreach to prisoners incarcerated at the Men’s Territorial Correctional Facility in Canon City and the Women’s La Vista Correctional Complex in Pueblo. The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is “to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities”.

St. Philips Church also participates in additional outreach to both the local community and the world. We provide monetary support to the Bridge of Hope (provides housing and mentor support for women and families in transition); the Interfaith Hospitality Network (provides shelter and food for people in need during the winter months); the Buddy Center and Denver Dumb Friends League (provide shelter, food, medical care and adoption services for homeless pets); Colorado Haiti Project (serves Petit trou de Nippes with community support and resources for health care, water, agricultural development, and education).
