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.
During the next two weekends, Sept 26-27 & Oct 3-4, we will be taking a collection to help those areas suffering the devastation of the recent hurricanes. Envelopes are available at the entrances of the church, or you may donate through our WeShare online giving site.
Bishop Parkes Calls Us to Dignity Beyond the Debate
With another election cycle in full swing, we are faced with the difficult question of what it means to love our neighbors in the midst of such a divisive climate.
The Diocese of St. Petersburg is challenging Catholics to model love for neighbor through respect and compassion during the 2020 election cycle and beyond.
Put your faith into action and make room in your heart for those with whom you disagree.
