    Monthly Calendar: 

During the early 1900s the focal point of Catholicism in Pinellas County was located in the community of Gulfport, and it is believed that the first masses to be held in the area were celebrated in the homes of the Steinwelder family in Gulfport and the Bethel family on Big Bayou. Over the ensuing years a strong Christian Spirit continues to develop among Catholic families of the area. With the help of mission priests who came by canoe across Tampa Bay, these families struggled and sacrificed to administer instruction in the Faith to the youth of Gulfport and to enrich their Catholic Heritage.
