2016 Soup and Bake Sale
St. Philip Parish has grown in parishioners. So with that
To make this sale a success we need your help.
We are in need of soup. 1 batch = 4 quarts. We need a total
of 20 batches of Chicken Noodle soup, 12 - 15 batches of Potato soup and 12 -
15 batches of Chili.
To reach our goal this is what we still need:
9 batches of chicken noodle
6 batches of potato
9 batches of chili
If you can help please send me an email with your choice of
soup and how many batches you can do. I will then send the containers home to
you for the soup.
Thank you for making this year a huge soup sale.

Due to the recent merger of parishes, along with the addition of the school, it will take time to process all of the clearances. If you need your clearances, please continue to get them and continue to volunteer. We need your help. We are still trying to get everything in order in the administrative end of the new parish that has formed post-merger. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
