St. Philip’s provides a welcoming inclusive community for anyone seeking a deeper connection with God, self, and others. Our long history in Uvalde, dating back to 1881, has helped shape and form us to be the church that we are today: a place of beauty, spiritual depth and learning, love and friendship, as well as a church that helps lead and influence the community of Uvalde. St. Philip’s has become known as “the church that helps others.”

The Core Vocations
of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church
God calls St. Philip’s to be a public face of Christ and to offer all people concrete ways to participate in the mystery of God.
St. Philip’s responds to God’s call by:
Reflecting the beauty of holiness in our sacred spaces and worship
Being a catalyst in our region for collaborative ministries that care for people in need
Providing transformative experiences for people in our region through teaching and practices of Christian formation
Appreciating the uniqueness of each person and nurturing and supporting their relationship with God
About Our Rector
The Rev. Dr. Michael K. Marsh has been the rector of St. Philip’s since 2005. As rector, he has primary responsibility for the worship, preaching, teaching, and day to day administration. However, his deep passion is helping others grow spiritually. He does this through sermons (Interrupting the Silence), teaching, individual spiritual counseling, and leading retreats.
Although Fr. Mike dreamed of becoming a priest since elementary school, he practiced law in Corpus Christi for fifteen years before beginning seminary in 2000, at The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. In 2012, Fr. Mike completed a Doctor of Ministry at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
Fr. Mike brings a quiet, deep, contemplative presence to St. Philip’s. Study and prayer have formed his life and priesthood. He is a calm presence in a busy and often chaotic world.
Fr. Mike enjoys cycling, backpacking, and reading. He is married to Cyndy. They enjoy traveling, especially visiting Randy and Rachel, their son and daughter-in-law, in Hawaii. Their older son, Brandon, died in 2009 in a work related accident at the age of twenty-seven.
