Message from Bishop Parkes

June 2019 Letter

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

Introducing Courageously Living the Gospel as our vision has brought new life and hope to our Diocese. We introduced it during our 50th anniversary and it has been well received. It has given us a renewed sense of purpose and a renewed sense of mission.

Right now, we are in the process of bringing that vision to life and our parishes are breathing life into the vision. Our parishes are making it happen by developing a parish pastoral plan in union with Courageously Living the Gospel.

I thank all of our priests, deacons, religious and parish leaders who have given so generously of their time to make this First year a time of excitement, hope and most of all, joy!

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Bishop Parkes
Bishop of St. Petersburg
