Founded: January 27, 2013
Saint Cyprian parish is a consolidation of several parishes. The history of our parish spans more than 125 years:
The members of Saint Cyprian Parish bring both the love of their former parishes and their spirit of faith and hope to the creation of yet a new and expanded faith community. The territory encompassed by this new parish, includes a vast portion of West Philadelphia and almost 2000 persons, young to "seasoned."
Already active and alive, our new parish moves forward in UNITY, FAITH AND HOPE.
ST. CYPRIAN was born an African nobleman about 200 A.D. He converted to Christianity. Later he became a priest then a bishop. He directed the church during a time of persecution, always stressing the theme of UNITY.
Almighty God, we are reminded through your servant, St.Cyprian, of Your Spirit always within us and your continued presence in us and of our oneness with you and the Church. May we always grow together and profess You in FAITH, UNITY, and HOPE, guided by the Holy Spirit. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
