St. Paul continues to assist People Helping People
in Hernando County
(visit their website >  )

Church collects food: During the Advent season,
members of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church made
donations to benefit People Helping People of Hernando
County. Church members donated nonperishable food
items and dropped them off during the church’s four
Advent services leading up to Christmas.

On Dec. 19, Regina and Vinny Spadafora, representing
the church, delivered the food to Fran Finley, left, a
People Helping People community outreach volunteer.

Mission Territory of Florida, The Old Catholic Church - Province of the United States (TOCCUSA)

St. Paul the Apostle and St. Francis of Assisi are now joined by five more Mission churches or communities. Some are in their infancy and some are concepts in planning.

The churches, communities and missions located in Florida are presently under the Episcopal Protection of the Most Reverend Robert T. Fuentes, who is the Bishop of the Old Catholic Diocese of Napa in California.

Church families located in Florida are not in a diocese, hence our identification as a Territory. The principal locations are Clearwater and Spring Hill, two very popular tourist destination and relocation points in Florida. Others are planned in nearby cities and counties. We are part of the greater Tampa Bay metropolitan area, which is one of the most dynamic and growing regions in Florida.

We are a Catholic Church apart from the jurisdiction of the Vatican. His Holiness, the Pope is always in our prayers, as are all patriarchs of all churches. God blesses all churches of the world.

The website joins us together in ecumenism and the Holy Spirit, to communicate our plans and progress as we work to form a diocese.

Welcome to Florida, welcome to the Old Catholic Church in the United States.

Mass during the week
If you are unable to attend Mass on Sunday, please offer your input as we contemplate the addition of a weekday Mass on Wednesday or Thursday. Your opinion is always welcome.
