From the beginning in 1997, The Chapel has celebrated the solemnity of the Annunciation in memory of our founding father, Vernon Robertson.
Father Robertson left The Chapel his large collection of art depicting the great mystery when the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary in Nazareth, announcing that she had been chosen to bear a son, Jesus, the Christ (Luke 1:26-38 ).
This year, because the usual day for this celebration (March 25) falls on Palm Sunday, the Annunciation has been moved to Monday, April 9. The Chapel Gallery will exhibit Father Robertson’s collection that weekend. On April 8, the eve of the feast day, The Chapel will open at 6 p.m. for anyone who would like to visit.
Last spring, 2017, we celebrated 20 years as The Chapel of St. Philip in grand style. This year will be less grand, but come anyway.
