Hello and Welcome!

Mrs. TenerI am so glad you are visiting the St. Philip Neri Catholic School website. 

I am proud to be a member of the Class of 1971. I know that I am blessed to have St. Philip Neri as a touchstone in my life. I have taken a circuitous route to return as the principal of St. Philip Neri. Many people have asked me since returning if I knew some day I would come back as the principal. I answer with a resounding, “No.” But, I did know from a very early age that I would always be connected to Catholic education somehow. And so, here I am.

God and our Catholic faith are an integral part of our daily activities and lessons here at St. Philip Neri. This is a school with committed teachers, strong academics, integrated technology, and Catholic values. I would like to invite anyone interested in our exceptional school to explore our website to find out more about us. Better yet, call us at 405-737-4496 or email me at btener@spnok.org for a visit.

Archbishop visits 5th GradeARCHBISHOP COAKLEY VISITS

     The Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley, Archbishop of Oklahoma City visited St. Philip Neri Catholic School on Thursday.

     Archbishop Coakley began his tour by presiding over School Mass. The ceremony was celebrated with school children, teachers and parishioners. Archbishop focused on St. Paul’s Letter to the Hebrews in his homily citing, “If God is for us, who can be against us.” His Grace challenged those in attendance, “Place trust in the Lord, just as Jesus did with His Father.”

     After Mass, Parish Priest, Father Timothy Fuller and School Principal, Mrs. Brenda Tener, led Archbishop Coakley on a school tour. Archbishop Coakely visited every classroom and answered questions from the students. Second grader, Remy Broussard posed the inquiry, “What was Jesus’ mission?” Coakley answered, “To announce the Kingdom of God and receive the reign of God into our lives.” The Archbishop made sure to discuss the subject of religion along with the advanced curriculum St. Philip Neri offers to all of their students.
