KeyNote: Dr. Mary Healy  

     Philip Militante is a gifted singer & worship leader. Many years ago, God brought about his conversion, using music as a catalyst. As he grew in his love for God, he joined a religious order called the Brotherhood of Hope. Here he grew in love of God and anointing in worship. He left the Brotherhood after discerning that his vocation was not to live as a religious. He and the love of his life, Rebecca married in 1999 and live with their 3 sons in Jacksonville, FL.
     Music has always been an important part of Philip's life. God continues to use and grow that gift in Philip. He ministers in many venues in the diocese, including various parish activities, the Life Teen Program at Christ the King, Rachel Vineyard Retreats, diocesan youth rallies, March for Life, and for the last 3 years, at the annual Diocesan Eucharistic Congress. He and his wife are founding members of Families Following Christ where Philip helps lead worship and adoration on a regular basis. Charismatic prayer is an integral part of Philip’s spiritual background and he looks forward to helping with the Catholic Charismatic Conference.
