THE JOURNEY

THE JOURNEY, A WAY TO DEEPEN YOUR EXPERIENCE OF JESUS 

 The first series in the Journey was well received by those able to join in small faith groups. They felt a bond with others as they each experienced Christ in their own way and also shared the same connection in their relationship with God. 

  We will begin the second series of the Journey in January.  Currently we have groups that meet on Wednesday at 9:30 am and 2 pm and Thursday at 1 pm.  We welcome you to join one of these groups or add another group, please call Chris at 727-938-1974, ext. 1.

CoronaVirus Updates

As We Begin to Open the Church

Believe that God is attentive to our prayers, just as we are attentive to God's will in our lives. Together, we contribute our part in staying protected from the spread of COVID-19.
 
On Monday, May 11 at St Vincent de Paul, weekday Mass resumed at 8:30 AM. With careful attention to the directives of Bishop Gregory Parkes during this pandemic, we are asked to take the following precautions to honor each life given to us by God and show charity for the well-being of our neighbors:
 
Stay home if you are ill, elderly, anxious or have underlying health conditions. Bishop Parkes has dispensed all Catholics in the Diocese of St. Petersburg from their Sunday Mass obligation until further notice.
  • Maintain six feet of social distance from others who are not from the same household at all times while in the church or on church property.
  • Show patience and kindness as parishes restrict attendance to only 25% maximum capacity inside our church (150 per.) or social halls.
  • Use a face mask or face covering. (Face covering should be removed before receiving Holy Communion.)
  • Refrain from physical contact in greeting others and in the sign of peace.
  • Avoid use to hymnals and limit touching. Doors and pews are sanitized.
  • Sanitize hands when entering and leaving Church. Bring personal supply of hand sanitizer to use before receiving Communion, if possible.
  • Consider receiving Holy Communion in the hand.
  • Honor the silence before and after times of prayer.
  • Keep necessary conversation at a minimum and 6 foot separation.
  • Collection baskets will be at the foot of the altar to receive your offering.
  • Thank you for sharing the sacrifice of Jesus when sent from Mass to witness God's love and compassion in this time of suffering and uncertainty.

Keeping Faith Alive - Quarantine Survival Kit

Ways to create a church at home include:

  • Watch Church on Sundays as a family
  • Pray daily as a family
  • Read the Daily Mass readings together and discuss
  • Create a domestic shrine as a center of prayer
  • Stay connected to your parish via social media and other communication channels
  • Gather together for meals

 Now, more than ever, our church needs us to keep the faith, our children included.
