Reverend Nguyen Vu Viet to Pastor of Holy Martyrs of Vietnam Parish, St. Petersburg.
Reverend Carlos J. Rojas from Parochial Administrator of Transfiguration Parish, St. Petersburg to the Pastoral Center, St. Petersburg.
NOTE: After this weekend (October 19-20, 2019), all Masses and parish-related services on the existing property of Transfiguration Parish (4000 43rd Street N., St. Petersburg) will cease, while renovations are being made to the facilities.
