Welcome to our Catholic Family.  St. Ignatius of Antioch was established in 1888 as one of the first missions in the West Coast of Florida. For 40 years the people depended on a visiting priest for Mass; but they were determined to create Church.  We still are.

Pope Francis visits St Mary Major

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis paid a private visit to the Basilica of St. Mary Major on Thursday afternoon, to pray for the success of his upcoming voyage to Albania. A brief statement from the Director of the Press Office of the Holy See, Fr. Federico Lombardi SJ, says that the Holy Father made the trip across the city centre to the top of the Esquiline Hill to spend time with Our Lady salus populi Romani – Protectress of the Roman people – whose icon in the church is among the city’s oldest and most beloved objects of Marian devotion. All told, the visit lasted about a half-hour, at the end of which the Pope left a bouquet of flowers.

Pope at Mass: resurrection completes Christian identity

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis celebrated Mass in the chapel of the Santa Marta residence on Friday morning.

Drawing on the words of St Paul the Apostle from his Letter to the Corinthians, which were proclaimed at Mass, Pope Francis spoke of the difficulty that some Christians – and others, who might otherwise be attracted to the Faith – have in understanding and living with the certain knowledge in faith that our bodies will be transformed and that we shall be restored to them.
