Parishes of the Diocese of St. Petersburg have our approval to share any of the materials listed below on their website, social media, bulletin, and other parish communication channels. If you have questions about any materials found on this page, please contact Keishla Espinal at firstname.lastname@example.org.

However, this content can also support your efforts.)
