Mission & Vision

The people of God, in the Roman Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg, in union with our bishop, are transformed by Baptism, sealed with the Holy Spirit and nourished by the Word and Eucharist to promote the incarnation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We, the Roman Catholic community in west central Florida, respect, honor and celebrate the image of God revealed in human uniqueness, dignity and diversity. God’s grace guides and strengthens us as we:

  • encounter Jesus daily in our sisters and brothers, especially the poor and most in need
  • lead people to experience the Gospel, through prayer, stewardship and evangelization
  • serve each other in Faith, Hope and Love
