Philip was the one who brought Nathaniel (also known as Bartholomew, another Apostle) to Jesus. He was the one who questioned Jesus as to how they were going to feed the crowds of so many people before the miracle of the loaves and fish. He holds a scroll which indicates that he was a bearer of the Good News of Jesus Christ. St. Philip's feast day in on May 3rd.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
