Pastoral_Letter_English_CoverThe Eucharist transforms the worshipping community so that we may be people of hope and action.  The fruit of our faith is love and the fruit of our love is service. As we reflect upon the principles of Catholic social teaching, we realize that we are called to work for charity and justice.”

Living Eucharist: Gathered, Nourished, Sent
The Most Rev. Robert N. Lynch,
Bishop of St. Petersburg

Bishop Lynch began Living Eucharist with the publication of his pastoral letter Living Eucharist: Gathered, Nourished, Sent.  In 2010, Bishop Lynch published a supplement to the pastoral letter in English and Spanish which expands upon the Eucharistic call to be sent into the world to bring Christ to others through evangelization, catechesis, and service.
