Go and Teach All Nations
This weekend we begin the observance of Catholic Schools Week! We are blessed to have not only fine religious education in the faith formation ministries here at St. Cecelia Parish, but we also have access to fine Catholic schools in our area.
In a particular way, St. Cecelia Interparochial School and Clearwater Catholic Central High School provide excellent opportunities for the education of our young people. It is wonderful to see the strong support these schools enjoy in our community.
Jesus commanded his disciples to go and teach all nations. Our support of Catholic education on all levels helps to fulfill that mandate in our time.
I also want to thank everyone who has been able to support the Diocese of St. Petersburg’s Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA). Our support of the wider church in the diocese Is very important. May we continue, even in this difficult time of the pandemic, to grow in faith, hope and love as we support the works of our parish and diocese.
And let us continue to pray for one another.
