Benvenuti!  Welcome!

Yes, our Italian heritage is still evident from the 1913 founding of our church by the Paulist Fathers, as Portland’s second church in service to the Italian immigrant community. Today it has evolved into a multiethnic and welcoming community intent on showing genuine love for the human person and respect for all God’s creation.

Our parish is named for St. Philip Neri, an engaging Italian saint known for his keen sense of humor and practical piety. He was a missionary and founder of the Congregation of the Oratory in Rome, who had a knack for helping people find or rediscover their faith in Jesus Christ.

St. Philip encouraged groups of people to gather for discussions, studies, prayers and enjoyment of music. His customary question was always, “well, brothers and sisters, when shall we begin to do good?”

I invite you to explore our website and visit our community. Whether you visit for a brief time, are looking for a new parish home, feel lost spiritually, or want to make a fresh start, this community will embrace and warmly welcome you.

I look forward to personally greet you in the spirit of St. Philip Neri, “Well, brother and sister, you are most welcome here at St. Philip Neri Parish. Won’t you join us to do good in honor of God the creator?”

Thank you! Grazie!
Fr. Nazario

St. Philip Neri FEAST DAY | May 26
