    Patron of contagious illnesses

    O Blessed Saint Roch,
    Patron of the sick,
    Have pity on those
    Who lie upon a bed of suffering.

    Your power was so great
    When you were in this world,
    That by the sign of the Cross,
    Many were healed of their diseases.

    Now that you are in heaven,
    Your power is not less.
    Offer, then, to God
    Our sighs and tears
    And obtain for us that health we seek
    Through Christ our Lord.

    Amen.

    (Repeat the following 3 times)

    Saint Roch, pray for us,
    That we may be preserved
    From all diseases of body and soul.

  • DEFENDING LIFE

    For the times we fear Sharing our pro-life convictions: May the Lord strengthen our faith And grant us courage to follow him; We pray to the Lord. God’s love does not differentiate between the newly conceived infant still in his or her mother’s womb and the child or young person, or the adult and the elderly person. God does not distinguish between them because he sees an impression of his own image and likeness in each one. Life is the first good received from God and is fundamental to all others; to guarantee the right to life for all and in an equal manner for all is the duty upon which the future of humanity depends. The effectiveness of our commitment to peace depends on our understanding of human life. If we want peace, let us defend life!

  • CATHOLIC SHARING APPEAL 2020

    Image result for catholic sharing appeal

    The Catholic Sharing Appeal (CSA) is a wonderful success story.  It is the story about the Church here in Northwest Florida and the Big Bend, a story in which each and every one of us has a part to play.  It is a local story of how the people of God have built this Church up to where it is now.

    The Catholic Sharing Appeal was instituted when the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee was formed in 1975.  Established without many reserves of its own, the diocese and parishes relied upon this vital funding source to carry on essential operations to survive as a local Church.  Today, CSA continues to be used to allocate funds at the diocesan level for expenses that extend past the parish for regional responsibilities, while parishes retain funds received in excess of goal for capital projects and programs within their parish.

    By giving funds through CSA, the people of God assist their bishop and pastor in carrying out the three-fold mission of the Church: teaching, serving and worshipping.  Since accomplishment of the Church's mission is of foremost importance, CSA affords parishioners a special opportunity to fulfill their baptismal call to discipleship.

    CSA specifically funds programs, services and functions that are coordinated from the Pastoral Center and are extensions of the Office of Bishop.  The administrative divisions of the Church of Pensacola-Tallahassee include the Bishop, Vicar General, Chancellor, as well as Secretariats for Communications, Financial Administration, Special Ministries, Social Concerns, Education and Apostolates.   Some of these ministries attend to needs beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their mission to teach, evangelize and provide good liturgical experiences.

    CSA sets aside a time which offers us an opportunity to renew (rededicate) ourselves to stewardship through involvement in our parish and diocesan communities. Annually, CSA provides time for parishes to ask parishioners to make a pledge which helps meet the needs of the broader Church community.
