St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church is a parish in the Diocese of Fort Worth in Lewisville, Texas. In 1967, Catholic families in the Lewisville area started meeting for Mass and Religious Education and the pastor from St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Grapevine, Fr. Balthasar Szarka, said Mass. Mass was held in various churches in the neighborhood and at Central Elementary school, until the funds had been raised for a temporary church building. A pre-fabricated metal building on Jones Street was completed in 1970 and the St. Philip Benizi parish, later renamed St. Philip the Apostle, celebrated the first Mass in the new church. Fr. Joseph Scantlin, appointed in 1972, was the first pastor. The new church on the current property was completed in 1977, and served as the church until 1997, when the new church was completed. The old 1977 church now serves as the Community Life Center. .
