This weekend we celebrate with all of our young people who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, February 15! It is a true joy to see our young people moving forward on their journey of faith.
Also, we know that 2020 brings with it the new outreach from our Diocese of St. Petersburg for the Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA). This is how we as parishioners support the wider work of our church in our five county Diocese of St. Petersburg. The diocese engages in ministries that no single parish could ever do alone.
“We are Salt and Light” is the theme of the appeal this year. Please continue to be generous to this important outreach. Our support of the Annual Pastoral Appeal helps people in our area with access to affordable housing, Catholic formation and education, and ministries of mercy that are so important.
My thanks to all who, “Courageously Living the Gospel”, give of their blessings for the sake of others.
And don’t forget our Parish Volunteer Brunch after the 8:30 a.m. Mass next Saturday, Feb. 22. Thank you to all who serve our parish so well!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
