On April 16th 2020 Bishop Gregory Parkes of the Diocese of St. Petersburg announced clergy changes.

The newly ordained Reverend Connor Penn will be assigned as Parochial Vicar of St. Catherine of Siena Parish effective August 15 2020.


Join us in welcoming Fr. Connor Penn, who will be ordained to the priesthood on August 15th, 2020. We are excited to have him join our parish as he begins his priestly ministry! Fr. Jack Marino, O.F.M. will still remain at St. Catherine of Siena parish leading up to the transition.

Fr. Jack, a priest of the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor, has been assigned to full-time residence at the St. Anthony Friary in St. Petersburg which will be effective upon Fr. Connor’s arrival.

Our faith community is truly grateful for Fr. Jack’s ministry at St. Catherine of Siena parish. More details will be announced about how our faith community will give a farewell to Fr. Jack in gratitude for the blessing he has been to our parish.
