In recognition of the significant role it has played in the history of our City, State, and Country, San Felipe de Neri Church is on the National and State registers of historic places.

San Felipe de Neri Church has continuously served as a House of Prayer for nearly two hundred years. Presently efforts are being made to restore and preserve this landmark for future generations. This process will take several years to complete.

Your support for this project is greatly appreciated. Inquires may be directed to the San Felipe de Neri property manager or the Parish Office.
