WELCOME FATHER SIMOES
With gratitude and joy, please join me in welcoming our newly assigned Parochial Vicar Fr. Camilo Simoes, S.A.C. He brings with him thirty years of pastoral and administrative experiences. He served as Parochial Vicar, Pastor and financial administrator of his Province. And he was also the Provincial Superior of the Assumption Province for nine years. His current Provincial Superior has given him permission to serve our family parish of St. Luke. I am certain Fr. Camilo will be a source of blessing for all of us. If not for Covid 19, Fr. Camilo would have been here one year ago. But he is finally arrived on March 24th, 2021. Please welcome Fr. Camilo and express your support and encouragement. ~~Fr. Paul
For more information, see Fr. Camilo full bio listed under "Did You Know?" in the header column Parish News & Updates.
Father Pedro Camilo Simoes written May, 2021
It is little over two months now that I am serving here at St. Luke the Evangelist Parish, Palm Harbor as the associate Pastor. I came directly from India to St. Luke’s and my experience here so far has been quite a happy and enjoyable one. Your words of welcome and good wishes have been heartening and encouraging.
Father Paul our Pastor has been particularly encouraging and supporting me to overcome the tide of cultural transition and get into the life of the Parish. With your support and encouragement, I hope to give my best to the parish and to the Diocese of St. Petersburg in Courageously living the gospel.
