The Fil-Am Group of St. Roberts is open to ALL Fil-Am members of the parish and ALL their friends. Meetings are held every few months, depending on scheduled festivities/celebrations.

Fil-Am is involved with social as well as religious and spiritual activities to meet the needs of our members and of our parish. There are three major devotional practices/festivities that the year:


Flores de Mayo is celebrated to honor and commemorate our Blessed Mother during the month of May. A flower offering by the children of the parish takes place during a special 11:30 mass during the entrance procession, and the statue of our Blessed Mother is crowned with flowers. A reception/fellowship follows after the mass at the entrance of the church. All are welcomed.


San Lorenzo Ruiz, the first Filipino saint, is honored with a nine-day novena held at various members’ homes, culminating with a special 11:30 mass on the Sunday closest to his feast day of September 28th. The mass is followed with a reception/fellowship. Food is served and shared among friends and the St. Roberts community.


Simbang Gabi is a nine-day schedule of novena masses before Christmas. It is traditionally held December 15th thru the 23rd. This is a beautiful tradition that expresses the culture and religious heritage of the Filipinos. It is a joyous way to prepare for the birth of Christ and prepare for the Christmas Holidays. A reception/fellowship follows after each mass, and a Christmas party is held on the last day (23rd) at Henessey Hall. Food is contributed by Fil-Am members and shared among all friends and the community of St. Roberts.

Another important activity that FilAm members are involved in is our "famous" lumpia booth during the St. Robert's Festival. This is an important activity for the school for which FilAm members cook and sell lumpia and other Filipino dishes to help with fund raising for the school.

Also, FilAm members have a very active choir that sings during the 11:30am Mass on Sundays.

FilAm is a very active and committed group of parishioners, and we definitely welcome new members dedicated to our common fellowship for St. Robert's parish.
