Official Communication Channels

Posted inLocal News

To help our diocesan family of clergy, religious, staff, parishioners and the entire community stay up-to-date with news and information about our bishop, our faith and our activities, please refer to the Diocese of St. Petersburg’s official communication channels listed below. We encourage you to subscribe, follow and stay connected. There are some groups who claim to be Catholic and can misinform the public about Catholic views and teaching. We invite you to review official Church channels for accurate information. If you have questions about our communication channels, contact Teresa Peterson,
