AFTER CHRISTMAS, SEND IN YOUR CHRISTMAS PHOTOS
Merry Christmas! We invite you to share photos of how you and/or your parish celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Photos could be of your Nativity set, Christmas tree, your family, praying or however else you celebrate Jesus’ birthday. Photos will be shared in a special online album posted on the diocesan website and Facebook page. Please email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them at @DioStPete with the hashtag #DOSPChristmas. Photos will be added to the album as they are received throughout the Christmas season.

The cost of $20.00 per person includes a menu choice of three entrees, salad, dessert and beverage. Please call Mary David for tickets & information @ 391-2016.
A Message from Pope Francis
Bishop Lynch recently had the opportunity to share words of gratitude with Pope Francis on behalf of everyone in the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Pope Francis’ response to Bishop Lynch was, “Please pray for me, I have only just begun and I need prayers.”
The diocesan office has created a poster to help share our Holy Father’s prayer request to as many as possible throughout our diocese.
