Changes Made to Parish Website!

Hello everybody!

We have made some changes to the Parish website, hoping that these changes will make it easy for parishioners and other individuals to quickly access three key pieces of information: WATCH MASS (online via YouTube), ATTEND MASS (by registering online), and DONATE (online or through e-transfer).

Clicking on the WATCH MASS image will take you directly to the parishes’ YouTube Channel, where you will find our live-streamed Mass (when Mass is taking place) as well as recordings of our previous Masses. Because all of the Masses are available through the YouTube channel, we will no longer be posting links to each respective Mass on the parish website. For even quicker access to our Masses, you can bookmark the Parishes’ YouTube channel, or subscribe to it in your YouTube app.

Clicking on the ATTEND MASS image will take you directly to the registration page where you can select the Mass you want to attend, and register online via the EventBrite link contained in this page. This page will be updated regularly with the registration links for our Masses.

Clicking on the DONATE image will take you to a page containing information on how you donate to the parishes, whether it’s online using, in-person during Mass, or by signing up for the parish’s pre-authorized payment service.

Both Weekend Masses to be Live-Streamed on YouTube

On October 17th, St. Philip Parish and St. Clare Mission “turned on” its new live-streaming equipment and began broadcasting its weekend Masses out onto the Internet.

Since that time, several parishioners have volunteered to join the Live Steam Ministry to help bring our Masses to those who, for whatever reason, cannot be present at one of our weekend Masses.

We are very fortunate that because of these new volunteers, we are able to live-stream both Saturday evening Mass and Sunday morning Mass onto YouTube! Saturday evening Mass at St. Philip Parish will be live-streamed to YouTube (going on-air around 4:20-25pm), and Sunday morning Mass at St. Philip Parish will be live-streamed (going on-air around 10:20-25am).

For those parishioners who require closed-captioning, the Saturday evening Mass will remain available for viewing/participating on Sunday (as it takes YouTube about twelve hours to process the Saturday evening Mass and the closed captioning). Unfortunately, it does not appear closed captioning can be done in real-time during the live-stream of the Mass.

Please visit the parishes’ YouTube Channel to view the live-stream of the Mass (when it’s taking place) and to view previous Masses held at St. Philip Parish.

Have a comment to make regarding our live-streaming? Want to pass along a compliment? Think a tweak is needed to make it a better “virtual Mass”? Please send an email to [email protected]! We are always looking for ways to improve the Mass experience for those who are unable to join us in person.
