Mark your calendars and don’t miss this wonderful spiritual opportunity! Mrsg. Cesar Petilla will be our mission preacher. This event is for the whole parish family. Please plan to attend the talk, from 7pm to 8pm at the church each evening.
On Thursday, March 7, from 5 to 7 p.m., every parish and mission in the Diocese of St. Petersburg will open their doors for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. A candle will be lit at the main entrance of the church to alert those who wish to take advantage of this sacramental opportunity. This is not a penance service. Priests will simply be available in church to hear individual confessions. This is an initiative that has been successful in our dioceses for the past four years. Let us pray that it will continue bear great fruit.

Saint Padre Pio – Powerful Intercessor
Padre Pio, a humble Capuchin priest from San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, transformed many persons lives by his witnessing to God. Padre Pio was blessed with many gifts, his most significant gift was the stigmata. From 1918 until his death in 1968, Padre Pio bore the wounds of Christ and because of his holy life, Blessed Pope John Paul II canonized Padre Pio in 2002.
Many people today seek Padre Pio for blessings, favors, and miracles. Please feel free join us at our scheduled gatherings, or in spirit, as we lift up prayers to this amazing mystic and powerful intercessor to God.
God Bless +

On behalf of MHR, I want to extend my gratitude and thanks to Marianna Berry for her service to our church. Marianna was the sacristan for a few years. She oversees the chapel and church linens and liturgical paraphernalia’s. They are moving to San Antonio area and therefore could not participate as she usually do volunteering her services for the church. Thank you, Marianna, for all you do for MHR. We will surely keep you in our prayers in this time of your transition.
God Loves you….
