Church invites guests to open house

The long, hot summer will soon be over; school is in session; and fall activities have begun. Why not head back to church? St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church is hosting an open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, inviting neighbors and other guests to visit and learn about the parish.

The church campus features gardens, an unusual octagonal meditation labyrinth, solar-panel installation, fully stocked library and renovated Children’s Center.

At the open house you can take a guided or a self-guided tour of the campus, including the church, which was designed by Josias Joessler in Spanish Colonial style and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Snacks and sandwiches will be served in various locations. Visitors also can attend one of St. Philip’s Sung Morning Prayer services, at 9 or 11:15 a.m. Childcare is available from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Activities take place throughout the morning for children, teens and adults at this come-and-go event. The church is showcasing more than 90 ministries and classes along with its worship music, friendly congregation and engaging children’s and teen programs.

Kingfisher Quartet

Friends of Music at St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church will present the Kingfisher String Quartet at 2 p.m. Sunday in the church.

Tucson’s leading chamber group, composed of Benjamin Nisbet and Ellen Chamberlain, violin; Emma Votapek, viola; and Anne Gratz, cello, will perform quartets by Beethoven and Brahms.

The Kingfisher String Quartet was founded in 2008 and has established itself as one of Southern Arizona’s finest chamber ensembles. During their time together, members have combined a mastery of the standard quartet repertoire with an ambitious collaborative.

Admission is a $15 suggested donation to St. Philip’s Friends of Music.
