You'll be given a high-level overview of the parish including a short video about the history, philosophy and benefits of being a part of the Espiritu Santo parish community. The whole family is invited and welcomed; however, if only one parent can make it that works well also.

The session presentation will normally run about 20 minutes. New Member Registration Form.

New Member FAQ

Welcome to the faith community of Espiritu Santo. We'd love to tell you about our vibrant, faith filled community. Take a few minutes to explore our website and learn more about our vibrant, faith filled community of catholic Christians. It is our hope that you will continue your faith journey with us.

Why become a member? As humans we desire to belong.  Community is a vital aspect of our personhood.  Within a faith community, membership enables you to take ownership and to invest yourself in the life of the Church in a new way.

How do I become a member? New Member Welcome gatherings for families wishing to beome members of our faith community are typically held on the second Saturday of each month. For up-to-date times, location and dates check the parish bulletin or website. No need to call ahead just come as you are. And, by the way, infants and children are always welcome. Meetings are held in the John Bosco Center on the east side of the church campus at 11:00 am. 

Q & A
1)  Why do I need to come to a meeting to register?
It’s a short gathering of 40-45 minutes with refreshments where you are able to meet, greet and get to know other newbies, existing members, the pastor and some of the staff. Here you will get orientated to the parish community and culture through a multi-media presentation and receive a folder of information about your new parish community.  Infants and children are ALWAYS WELCOMED!
2)  When will my envelopes start?cross2
In about 2-3 weeks time.
3)  Can I sign up for Automatic Offertory Giving then?
Yes.
4) Can I get my child’s baptism process started then?
Yes. You can find out more information at the Baptism Preparation page.
5) Can I register my child for Religious Education then?
No. Simply call their office at 727.812.4656.  Registering first in the community is a prerequisite.  Find out more about Religious Education.
6)  I’ve been asked to be a (Baptism/Confirmation) sponsor, can I get my letter of verification then?
Becoming a sponsor/Godparent is a very vital ministry within the Church and one which requires first, an understanding of that role, then to be “living” that life.  By registering you are “refreshing “ that vow of your baptism to be active in your faith.  Sponsorship letters are available in the office following registration and participation.

 

“This in not the parish we live closest to, but we were attracted to Espiritu Santo because it made us feel welcome and the parish is alive and has lots of activities and life! They start getting the kids involved early, and continue engaging them all through the years.  It’s family oriented and its nice to see the kids and what they do in school.” -Sandy and David Brown, members since 2003
 
“You come to one mass here and you see the care they put into the liturgy and it makes it a wonderful experience.”  –Frank McEwen, member since 1998
 
“I attended a daily Mass on a Wednesday. I was pleasantly surprised when the pews were filled with Espiritu Santo students. It brought tears to my eyes, watching the students perform all the assisting roles of the Mass.”  -Cindy Hutzler, member since Nov 2010 

What We Believe

We are Catholic-Christians.

Mostrance

We are Catholic or universal Christians, members of the Roman Catholic Church which was instituted by Jesus Christ and led by the apostles and their successors for over 2,000 years and strengthened through the gift of the Holy Spirit. We are called to go forth and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We are united by our common beliefs which are set forth in our statement of beliefs, the Nicene Creed. This creed was established in 325 AD and is proclaimed as our statement of faith by the assembly during Sunday and Feast day celebrations of the Mass.

 

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages.

God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried, 
and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come.

Amen.

Parish Pastoral Council

The Parish Pastoral Council discerns the mission of the parish and envisions ways in which the parish membership is being called by God to carry out that mission. The Pastoral Council serves as a consultative leadership body to the pastor. The pastoral visioning and planning function of the council and the day-to-day administrative operations of the parish are two separate and distinct areas of responsibility. The pastor and parish staff are responsible for routine decision-making which needs to take place for the parish to function efficiently and effectively on a daily basis. These day-to-day operational decisions are not the responsibility of the Pastoral Council, whose role is to guide the community in the discernment, expression and fulfillment of its pastoral mission. This is accomplished through an ongoing cyclical process of Pastoral Planning, which is mission-motivated and involves: discernment, consensus, goal setting, developing objectives, implementation and evaluation.

One of the elements of this model of pastoral council is a discernment process that takes place each year. Instead of an annual Parish Council election, nominations of parishioners that you feel would be good leaders for our parish are put forth.

Current members of the parish Pastoral Council are: Joe Ijjas, Jennifer Pettersen, Scott McGowan, Missy Liermann, Khanh Chau, Anna Gutierrez, Dan Rodriguez, Michael Ryckman and Elaine Feldman. Ex-Officio members continuing are: Father Len Piotrowski, Father Brad Reed, Deacon John Alavarez, Jeffrey FitzCharles, and Shaun Shea.

History of Espiritu Santo

 

The History of Espiritu Santo begins with the history of the Catholic faith first being carried to Florida’s west coast in 1539 by Hernando Desoto. In his search for wealth, Desoto landed on the shores of what is now known as Tampa Bay on Pentecost Sunday, where he discovered five mineral springs near a large Tocabago Indian village. He named the body of water Bahia Espiritu Santo (Bay of the Holy Spirit) in honor of the holy day and because the inhabitants of the nearby Indian village believed the springs had healing properties, a legend that persists today.

 

Timeline

1539 Hernando DeSoto discovers Bahia Espiritu Santo (Tampa Bay)
1567 Pedro Menendez de Aviles came to Espiritu Santo Springs to establish a mission
1960 The mission church of Espiritu Santo was established in Safety Harbor.
1964 The first Mass was celebrated in Espiritu Santo Catholic Church.
1987 The first Mass was celebrated in the present-day church.
2001 Espiritu Santo Catholic School was dedicated.

In 1567 Pedro Menendez de Aviles came to Espiritu Santo Springs, later to be known as Safety Harbor, where he negotiated with Carlos, a Calusa chief, in an effort to convert the natives to Christianity.

Menendez sailed on, leaving behind a blockhouse mission, a captain, thirty soldiers, and Father Rogel, a Catholic priest.

The Indians destroyed the mission, however, and drove the Spaniards out. Though their initial effort proved unsuccessful, the seed of faith had been planted at the springs, and in time would blossom and flourish, according to the will of God.

Over 400 years later, this seed of faith found expression in a mission begun under the direction of Monsignor John F. McNulty, V.G. Responding to the need for a Catholic parish in the growing community of Safety Harbor, a mission church was established in 1960 on the present site.

The mission thrived. It soon became apparent that a church building and parish hall were needed. On Christmas Eve, 1964, the first Mass was celebrated in Espiritu Santo Catholic Church.

Through the years the parish grew rapidly. The need for a new, bigger church was apparent, and on April 18, 1987 the first Mass was celebrated in the new church, which seats approximately 1,000 people. The original church building is now the Parish Center.

The Espiritu Santo Catholic School was dedicated on August 19, 2001. The mission of the school is to pass on the beliefs and teachings of the Roman Catholic faith, to teach students to reach out to each other in a caring, Christian way, and to offer students an academic, Christ-centered education in a disciplined environment. The school serves Pre-K 3 through the 8th grade, Sunday morning and weekday evening Religious Education, and Adult Education programs.

The former Education Building has been remodeled and named the St. John Bosco Center. It is available for a variety of parish uses. In the life of the Espiritu Santo Catholic Church community, the seed of faith planted by the Spanish missionaries in 1539 has borne much fruit and continues to flourish.

The following two videos describe Espiritu Santo's long history in becoming the thriving community it is today:
