We welcome everyone back to the public celebration of the Mass on weekends here in the Diocese of St. Petersburg! Please know that it is still not necessary to be present at Mass each weekend if one does not feel comfortable in doing so. We want everyone to be safe! This is the Feast of Pentecost. We traditionally think of this as the “birthday of the Church”. The Holy Spirit descended upon those gathered in the upper room and they were impelled to begin to preach the Gospel!
