Welcome to the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Tampa!
After receiving authorization to resume public Masses from Bishop Gregory Parkes, and after a prayerful discernment and consultation with the leadership of the Parish Pastoral Council, our weekend public Masses have resumed but are still under strict CDC guidelines.
“Bishop Parkes wants you to understand that the Dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass remains in effect until further notice and applies to all Catholics. Bishop says that ‘no one should feel guilty for protecting their health or that of their loved ones’.” (Source: OLPH May 24th bulletin)
A Special Message from Bishop Gregory Parkes
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Change is all around us.
We all experience it in our day-to-day life. We also see it within the life of our Church. It is when the world is changing we most need to place our trust in God who is our strength and our stronghold (Jeremiah 16:19).
You may have heard of changes in how we respond to diocesan-wide needs and support Catholics throughout their lives as they grow in faith. The new Catholic Ministry Appeal is replacing what was formerly called the Annual Pastoral Appeal. This is a big change.
