Siena House

As baptized Christians, we are called to go out to the peripheries and encounter Christ. One of those peripheries is our initiative in Coral Heights. This is in response to our pastoral priority to connect our faith to the local community. Our newly acquired property is located at 3718 139th Avenue North, Largo, FL 33771.

Siena House Update

In October 2017, volunteers from our parish and the Coral Heights Neighborhood Association began visiting residents of the Coral Heights neighborhood. We went door-to-door to introduce ourselves and to acquaint the residents with Siena House. To date, we have made contact wtih about half of the community. By April 2018, we hope to have met members of every household in the neighborhood.

At each visit, we ask a few questions regarding their concerns and needs of their community and of their own families with which we might be able to assist. There have been requests for prayer, food, clothing, tutoring, and activities for their children. We already have provided assistance with several of these requests.

In December 2017, we held the Siena House Dedication, when we also dedicated playing fields located on nearby Duke Energy property, which are available for community use.
