Several important organizations are affiliated with St. Philip Neri, with these groups filling essential roles within both the church and local community.
Child Development Center Preschool
The Child Development Center, a preschool operated by St. Philip Neri, fills a substantial need of both our Parish and community by preparing preschool-aged children with those skills required to enter kindergarten. It also offers children the experience of a Christian way of life. This program is open to children that are two, three or four years old. Attendees must be age-appropriate by September 1st. Sessions take place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday during the months of September through May.
Our Lady of Grace Mission Church – Indian Land
St. Philip Neri and the Rock Hill Oratory currently sponsor a Mission Church, Our Lady of Grace. Under the guidance of St. Philip Neri’s pastor, Fr. John P. Giuliani, Our Lady of Grace was formally established as a Catholic Community and Mission Church in 2008. Located in Indian Land, SC, it lies approximately 30 minutes, or 15 miles southeast of St. Philip Neri. The congregation, which began meeting in February 2008, continues to grow. Development plans are currently underway for a sanctuary for Our Lady of Grace.
The Oratory of Rock Hill
The Parish of St. Philip Neri is directed under the auspices of the Rock Hill Oratory, an Oratorian house that was founded in 1934 in Rock Hill, SC. The priests of St. Philip Neri, Fr. John and Fr. Joe, are Oratorians, or members of the Rock Hill Oratory. The local Oratory is part of a worldwide federation of 60 independent Oratorian houses collectively known as The Oratory. This international alliance was founded by our patron, St. Philip Neri, in Rome in 1556. The Rock Hill Oratory is the oldest and largest house in the United States.
