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.

The Positivity Rate is Down therefore wearing masks is encouraged but no longer required.
As you may have noticed, the Friday Oct 29th report from the Florida Department of Health has listed the Positivity Rate for Pinellas County as 2.1%, for Pasco County as 3.5% and for Hillsborogh County as 3.5%.
Because of this, we will no longer be requiring people to wear masks in Church. However, we strongly recommend that people continue to wear masks, particularly if they or members of their famlies have any underlying conditions that would warrant precautions.
Should a new strain of the virus appear, we will take another look at this policy.
For now, the wearing of masks in the Church or parish buildings is encouraged, but not required.
If all continues to go well, then for the First Sunday of Advent, Nov 27-28, we will return to using the missallettes, holy water fonts, offertory processions and passing the collection baskets. People will continue to be encourage but not required to wear masks inside parish buildings. Parents can opt for their children not to wear masks for faith formation, while serving the altar, or singing in the children's choir. Communion under both species will remain suspended.
