Teaching the Catholic Faith
with the fervor of first century Christians
The St. Philip Institute
Welcome to the St. Philip Institute. We are an institute founded by Bishop Joseph E. Strickland to teach the Catholic faith with the fervor of first century Christians, with truth, goodness, and beauty, with reverence for the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, and for all seasons of life.
The St. Philip Institute produces digital and print materials to teach the Catholic faith. Browse our essays, videos, teaching materials, and podcasts.
St. Philip the Evangelist
Pray for us!
“Now there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of the Candace, that is, the queen of the Ethiopians, in charge of her entire treasury, who had come to Jerusalem to worship, and was returning home. Seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet Isaiah. The Spirit said to Philip, ‘Go and join up with that chariot.’ Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and said, ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ He replied, ‘How can I, unless someone instructs me?’ So he invited Philip to get in and sit with him.” Acts 8: 27-31
