A Word from Deacon Jim

In an effort to lead all people closer to the Heart of Jesus, Bishop Gregory Parkes has announced that he will consecrate the parishes, schools, charities, ministries and all people who live in the five counties of the Diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. To consecrate means to dedicate or set aside for a sacred purpose. Mary’s life was set aside for the sole purpose of serving Jesus. By following her example, Catholics can completely give themselves to Christ in a powerful way and give their lives to Him in service and love.

All are invited to join Deacon Jim who will be conducting a retreat leading up to this event. Deacon Jim will be meeting with the Legion of Mary and the Mother’s Group and anyone else who wishes to attend these meetings. We will be using the Book that Bishop Parks recommends titled 33Days to Morning Glory. These meeting will start on Sunday April 8, 2018 in our Chapel at 7PM and continue every Sunday until May 6 where we will conclude with a Holy Hour in the Chapel from 7 to 8 pm. For more information, call Deacon Jim at 727-534-7430

Pray for our Catechumens Abby, April, and Jayden who will continue on through the Enlightenment Period of RCIA and will receive the Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil Mass. Last Sunday February 18, 2018 our catechumens went to the Cathedral to experience the Rite of Election and meet Bishop Parkes. They will be officially called the "elect" from that point on.
