Visiting Clergy/ Religious/ Lay Speakers
Clearance of Speakers ~ Update
*Considering the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have been presented with other options for ministry to the people of God within the Diocese of St. Petersburg. One of those options is the use of the Zoom application to conduct meetings and webinars.
Concerning clergy, religious or lay presenters via Zoom or other videoconferencing applications, if they are presenting via video conference to members of our parishes or other diocesan entities, they should be cleared just as if they were presenting in person. A Clearance Request Form should be submitted with all pertinent information, which would allow us to confirm the speakers’ good standing within their diocese/parish/religious institute .
Request forms for clearance of such persons can be found below:
