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.

Want to empower women? Support mothers, politician argues

Vatican City, May 22, 2015 / 09:45 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Ahead of a conference discussing the presence of women in the 2015 development agenda, organizers said goals fall short of addressing issues such as attacks on motherhood and surrogacy.

“Today we live, at least in western society, in an abortive society. It doesn’t welcome life. If a second child comes they ask you ‘but do you want it?’ So maternity is not welcomed…today whoever has more children is penalized,” Olimpia Tarzia told CNA May 21.

Nebraska bishops praise move to repeal death penalty

Lincoln, Neb., May 21, 2015 / 05:11 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Nebraska’s Catholic bishops on Wednesday praised the Nebraska legislature’s veto-proof vote to end the death penalty, saying  capital punishment “cannot be justified” in the state at present.

The bishops said their support for the bill was based on Catholic teaching and their prudential judgement that the death penalty is now unjustifiable. Their support “also flows from our prayerful reflection on the words of Jesus Christ himself: ‘love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father’,” they said.
