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 will resume 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.
