WE are the church.

 

Almighty ever-living God, eternal health of believers,
hear our prayers for your servants who are sick with coronavirus:
grant them, we implore you, your merciful help,
so that, with their health restored,
they may give you thanks in the midst of your Church.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

On March 18th, Bishop Gregory Parkes suspended all public masses. Let us take the suspension as an opportunity to stay close to the Lord. We encourage all to do any of the following…

For the safety of all our parish has cancelled previously scheduled ministry or social events. Except our outreach ministries. A crisis such as this effects the most vulnerable first, the poor and needy. We ask that you consider donating or giving of your time to one of the following outreach initiatives…

  • Cook and serve a meal at Pinellas Hope for the residents who are in transitional housing to assist homeless adults become self-sufficient.
  • Donate to the St. Vincent de Paul Society through the Poor Boxes in the church narthex. Donations help our parish financially assist the poor in various housing insecurities. Are you willing to donate your time? Volunteer as a team member.
  • Siena House offers a monthly food distribution as well as various support programs to serve the poor and refugee families in our area.

Catechesis at home! During this challenging time, we get to encounter the Lord by sharing the faith at home! Our Faith Formation team has provided at-home resources for families to pray together and grow in faith during this time.

We ARE the church.
