Saint Philip The Deacon/Evangelist


St. Philip the Deacon is sometimes called St. Philip the Evangelist, for he had a powerful way of sharing the Good News of Christ. His preaching was profoundly well-received among Samaritans, and the 8th chapter of Acts shares the story of an extraordinary conversion and baptism of a treasurer from Ethiopia.

Feast Day:  October 11
(formerly June 6)
