Priests of the Parish are usually available to hear confessions before or after any Mass

In addition to our Masses, where we commemorate the Passover-Last Supper Meal, we also have times when we put the consecrated bread, the host-the Body of Christ, in a receptacle called a “monstrance”. Then we have time to reflect on this gift and what it means for our lives.

  • Every first Saturday (05:00 pm – 06:00 pm).
  • Every Wednesday (12:45 pm – 1:45 pm).
  • Every Thursday (07:00 pm – 10:00 pm).

Severe weather procedures for families:

The safety of all parishioners is our primary concern.
If you judge weather conditions to be unsafe, do not come to the parish.
Determine if Sunday school is officially cancelled and closed by calling 727-442-7081.
If Sunday school is officially closed, your child’s Catechist (or Catechist Assistant or Class Parent) will attempt to contact families of that class. He/She may ask you to participate in a ‘telephone tree’ by calling another family.
Do not rely on anyone else, or any phone message, for the safety of your family.

Holy Days of Obligation in the United States

Canon 1246, §2 – Holy Days of Obligation.

On December 13, 1991 the members of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops of the United States of America made the following general decree concerning holy days of obligation for Latin Rite Catholics:

In addition to Sunday, the days to be observed as holy days of obligation in the Latin Rite dioceses of the United States of America, in conformity with canon 1246, are as follows:

  • January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God
  • Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter, the solemnity of the Ascension
  • August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
  • November 1, the solemnity of All Saints
  • December 8, the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
  • December 25, the solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Whenever January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, or August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption, or November 1, the solemnity of All Saints, falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated.

This decree of the Conference of Bishops was approved and confirmed by the Apostolic See by a decree of the Congregation for Bishops (Prot. N. 296/84), signed by Bernardin Cardinal Gantin, Prefect of the Congregation, and dated July 4, 1992.

As President of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, I hereby declare that the effective date of this decree for all the Latin Rite dioceses of the United States of America will be January 1, 1993, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

Given at the offices of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington, DC, November 17, 1992.
