2024, Feb 22: Flower Festival is Here!

Dear Parish Family,

Tomorrow marks the beginning of our Flower Festival and English Tea and I hope to see you there. Here in Florida, the best climate of the year occurs during Lent and it is hard to be penitential when the weather is so spectacular! This is a simple fact of life and I am well aware that we all want to take advantage of this time to make ourselves known to the wider community. Therefore, and I probably do not have the power to do this, I would like to pronounce a “lifting of the usual Lenten disciplines”, so we can all enjoy the color, the creativity, the music, and the culinary magic that comes with this annual celebration. Special thanks to all who have labored so hard and so faithfully for our success.

Fr. Michael

Funeral Service

It is with sad and heavy hearts that we announce the passing into the arms of our Lord, Richard Cooper. A long time congregant and loving friend to many. A Memorial Service for Rich will be held on Monday, February 26, at 11:00am. Come out to support Veronica and her family.
