Dear Devotees of Saint Philomena
The Sanctuary of Saint Philomena is not a parish Church. We do not have consistent parishioners who support their own community place of worship on a weekly basis. We are completely dependent on the love and generosity of you, the world-wide devotees, to keep the doors of the earthly home of Saint Philomena open.
I value the spiritual needs of the faithful who grace this sacred space above the accruing of funds. I pray for you constantly at the Holy Altar of Saint Philomena, where the mortal remains of our beloved saint rest today.
I trust in God who provides for those who trust in Him (see Matthew 6:24)! I trust in the intercession of Saint Philomena, whose pleading has obtained such favorable responses from the Almighty to countless faithful pilgrims who have knelt before her mortal remains with fervor in their hearts and her name on their lips!
I pray for the devotees of Saint Philomena to recognize and provide the means to pay our monthly utilities of gas and electricity, which are past due. I also pray for the means to install a lift at the Sanctuary so that physically challenged pilgrims can experience the entire home of their beloved Saint.
I trust that our Provident God, through the intercession of his beloved daughter, Saint Philomena, will inspire benefactors to provide the Sanctuary with flowers in this Holy Season of Lent to commemorate and thank Jesus for his sacrificial death and memorialize Christ's rising from the dead on Easter Sunday morning with the living symbols of resurrection.
I rejoice in advance for the bounteous blessings that our Lord will bestow upon us!
