Mission

The Communications Office invites all to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and one another and we partner with our parishes and schools to proclaim the Good News.

Through various tools of communication, we guide and support God’s people in their faith and inspire them to courageously live the Gospel.

Specifically, we promote the messages of our bishop, Most Reverend Gregory Parkes and the mission of the Catholic Church through written, broadcast and electronic media.

We inform the community of diocesan news and information and assist with media inquiries.

For members of the media:

The executive director of the Office of Communications is the Diocese of St. Petersburg’s main contact for the media.

The Communications staff prepares and distributes statements, news releases and other resources for the media, arranges interviews with Bishop Gregory Parkes, responds to media inquiries, and credentials press for major diocesan events.
