As Pastor, I am delighted you are considering joining the parish.
By registering, you are declaring your desire to be a part of the Catholic faith community. This commitment will benefit you in many spiritual ways and can provide a sense of belonging.
It will also enable me and the staff to get to know you better, to welcome you and minister to you! This is especially important during a time of crisis so that the pastoral staff can attend to you spiritual needs and the needs of your family.
Finally, registering as a member of St. Luke the Evangelist says, you are willing to put your faith in action as we respond to the call of Christ to: “Love God, Love Our Neighbor, and Make Disciples.” Won't you join us and the entire Diocese of St. Petersburg as we "Courageously Live the Gospel?"
Simply return your completed registration form to the parish office so we can share a Welcome Packet with you. If you prefer to schedule an appointment to drop it off and meet with me please call 727-786-3648. In closing, I trust you'll find warmth and happiness in our parish, and I look forward to getting to know you personally in the weeks and months ahead. God Bless you.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Paul Kochu, Pastor
