This coming Monday February 27th is the first Lenten Mission lead by Fr. Jean Robitaille, M. Afr. and the theme will be "God is alive and well in 2023!" He said to bring a pen and paper to take notes.

Communal Penance Service

Please join us for our annual Lenten Communal Reconciliation Service Wednesday March 29th at 7pm in the Main Church. What a better way to prepare for Easter than to experience the Mercy of Jesus in the sacrament of Confession!

Four Churches Visitation

We would like to honor this tradition, beginning with St. Ignatius and concluding with Espiritu Santo. Afterwards, we'll go for breakfast at IHOP in Palm Harbor (which will be around 12:15 am). This is a wonderful way to "stay awake" and join the Lord in prayer in the "Garden of Gesthemene". For more information, contact Taylor Gunn in the office at 727-937-4050.
