Saints Stories for All Ages

Saint Philip the Deacon was one of the seven men chosen by the apostles to minister to the needy members of the community. On the way to his home in Caesarea, Philip preached in the towns and cities along the coast.

Many years later, Saint Paul stayed at Philip’s home in Caesarea, where he still lived with his four unmarried daughters. According to a Greek tradition, he became Bishop of Tralles, Lydia (modern-day Turkey).
