Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is the ministry provided by our Priest to visit the sick in the hospital and the homebound. It is an outreach program to ensure that our faith reaches all of those that are part of our Parish. If you have a family member, relative or friend that is in the hospital or in need of pastoral care, please contact Fr. Matthew, (850) 889-3919, or the Church office, (850) 433-2662.

Parish Council - Our Parish Council is a group of 11 dedicated parishioners who work closely with our Pastor and are elected by the parishioners to serve as stewards and oversee the business matters of the Church.
