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.
Catholic Ministry Appeal
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 .
Give to the Catholic Ministry Appeal Here
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.
