Greetings and welcome. This website was assembled as a place for you to learn more about our prayerful cause of having an having a Roman Catholic Ordinariate community established in the Tampa Bay area. Particularly, we would like to invite you to come and pray with us and experience a bit of what Ordinariate liturgy might be like beginning on Sunday, June 4, but also on the Sundays of July 16 and August 13.
Philip Mayer, who formerly served as an Episcopal priest before becoming Catholic, was recently asked by the director of vocations and clergy development of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter to begin seeking the establishment of a community in the Tampa Bay area. Once a viable community has been gathered, and an official community has been established by Bishop Lopes of the Ordinariate, Philip will, God willing, be ordained as a Roman Catholic priest in order to say Mass for the new community and to lead it to becoming a parish.
We would like to invite you to come and celebrate Pentecost and pray with us for the formation of this community by joining us for evensong (chanted evening prayer) and a potluck (bring a dish of food to share) Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 5:00 PM at St. Mary Catholic Church, 15520 North Blvd, Tampa (also mark your calendars for July 16 and August 13, same place and time). Children are welcome. Please let us know that you are joining us by calling or texting 407-409-8913 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
