Great to visit the monks today for Mass at St. Leo Abbey. They are celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the consecration of the Abbey Church. Bishop Elias Lorenzo, O.S.B. was the main celebrant. I’m grateful for their prayers and the gift of a new mitre! #courageouslyliving


Stopped by Morning Star Catholic School in Pinellas Park today for their Open House & Alumni Reunion! Morning Star serves students in the @DioStPete with learning differences and special needs. #courageouslyliving #catholicschools


Blessed to have Fr. Leo Patalinghug with us for our @DioStPete Discipleship Days! We began today with Mass at St. Catherine of Siena Parish with Mass, and are spending the day learning how to courageously make disciples in our parishes and communities. #courageouslyliving
