Children's Homilies

Let the Children Come Unto Me
Let the Children Come Unto Me
Children’s Homilies on the Icons of St. Philip’s - Our holy icons can become mere old-fashioned decorations to our children unless the stories of the Bible, Church history, and the Saints become our family stories. Only then can children grow deeper in their love of God and more mature in their lives in the Church. Fr. Noah Bushelli attempts to do just this in these live recordings of homilies to children of his parish about cooperating with God's love in the company of His saints.

And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26)
