Give to the Catholic Ministry Appeal Here
This year, 2022, our Diocese is replacing APA (Annual Pastoral Appeal) with the CMA (Catholic Ministry Appeal). The difference is that 100% of CMA will go to ministries. Part of APA was designated for administration expenses. Administration expenses will now be assessed to each parish at a greatly reduced rate. Every parish has a goal for the CMA based onthe parish's best effort. Bishop Parkes is convinced that if the word goes out to all that these goals will be met. Please see the Bishop's introductory video here: https://youtu.be/__lnxcANOJw .
The Diocese has set up a special site for the Catholic Ministry Appeal. Unfortunately, this cannot be accessed through the WeShare site where you make your online donations. However, donations you make to on this site will be credited to St. Ignatius of Antioch Parish. The CMA donation site is: www.GivetoMinistry.dosp.org.
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.
You may have noticed that we stopped broadcasting every Mass and are focusing on the 11:30am Sunday Mass. Why? Because at this time, EVERYONE who is not sick or otherwise impeded from attending Mass should be coming to Mass. That being said, we are interested in improving the quality of the live broadcast. This means we need to purchase additional equipment. If you would like to donate, please contact Ron at [email protected] or Fr. Bill.
185 Programs, 79 movies, 23 children programs, 83 Documentaries, 102 audiobooks and 58-ebooks, all are given to you as a gift from the Brothers in Christ and the parish. If you bought these they would all cost over $18,000. They are all yours for free for attending our parish. You can watch them online, on your tablet or smart phones, or on your TV with the apple or roku aps. Click here to go to the formed site to register. Click register on the lower right of that page, put that you are part of an organization, and put in our parish access code: 68Z88Q. The email you give them will get you onto the formed site using whatever device you wish.
Welcome to Online Giving
Remember St. Ignatius in your will

Faith in Action
"For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be" (Lk 12:34). Jesus encourages us to build up our treasure in heaven. The world encourages us to build up our treasure in real estate, investments, and material goods. How much time are you investing in building up a worldly treasure? Houw much time are you investing in building up a heavenly treasure? To invest more in the things of heaven, you must let go of some of the things of this world.
