Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg cordially invites you…
Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg invites you to join us 6:00 pm on Saturday, November 5, 2022, as we celebrate our Second Annual Ministries of Mercy Celebration of Life, benefiting Catholic Charities Ministries of Mercy (Foundations of Life, Friends in Need and Shelters of Hope). This fundraiser is being held at Higgins Hall on the grounds of St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Tampa.
Last year over 460 people attended the event with over $300,000 raised to provide free services, such as financial assistance, medical services, pregnancy and adoption services, housing, and shelters. With more people needing assistance due to the poor economic climate and increased costs due to inflation, we need your support for our clients more than ever. And with the news of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade through the Dobbs v Jackson decision, expectant mothers need our support more than ever!
Our keynote speaker is Father Leo Patalinghug. Father Leo is a priest member of a community of consecrated life, Voluntas Dei (The Will of God), and is a friend of Bishop Parkes. His diverse background as an award-winning chef, radio and TV host gives him a unique perspective on ministry and family life. Plating Grace with Father Leo is a fun, family focused, dynamic ministry seeking to bring about a future of stronger families, closer relationships, and a deeper understanding of Jesus as Food for our mind, body, and soul! Father Leo will be cooking up a taste of Italy while he shares the message of being of service to our brothers and our sisters in need.
We are so grateful to what our sponsors just like you have helped us accomplish over the years. Through your generous contributions, you have enabled us to continue to serve over 16,000 clients, including 123,500 meals, house over 4,500 persons, and provide pregnancy and adoption services to over 2,500 families in need.
