Recently on May 3 was the Feast Day of Saint Philip the Apostle which we celebrated in an assembly. In the assembly to celebrate that feast day, we learned a bit about Saint Philip, ate pan dolce, and listened to some performances of students that do Speech and Debate. The assembly to celebrate the Feast Day of Saint Philip occurs every year in which we review our knowledge of Saint Philip and learn a bit more. Saint Philip the Apostle is the patron saint of fishermen, hatters, and pastry chefs which is why we eat pan dulce in the assembly and occasionally some grades wear hats. Saint Philip the Apostle is the patron saint of fishermen because he was the one to pass Jesus the fish on the day of the miracle of the loaves and the fish where Jesus was able to feed a large crowd of people that he was preaching to with only a few loaves of bread and a few pieces of fish and Saint Philip himself was a fisherman. Saint Philip was one of the first apostles of Jesus and was also a disciple of Saint John the Baptist. Saint Philip was born in Bethsaida, Palestine and died around the year 80 in Hierapolis, Phrygia. Saint Philip the Apostle is represented in many different ways including an elderly man with loaves of bread and fish, a man with a snake nearby, and an elderly man holding loaves of bread and a cross. For more information on the Saint Philip the Apostle Feast Day assembly, visit the article written by Daniela Salazar titled This Years St Philip Feast Day Celebration.

    Thanks for writing this, Madison. I didn’t know about the snake!
