On 12/12/21, we welcomed our 5th Pastor! Msgr. Michael Carruthers was installed on Gaudete Sunday by the Most Reverend Gregory L. Parkes, Bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg. It was a beautiful day of celebration. May the Lord look upon St. Lawrence and bless our Pastor as he leads us.
Blessing of the Saint Statues 2021
The morning of January 20th, St. Lawrence Catholic Church held a special blessing of the Saint statues on campus. This blessing was headed by the Pastor, Father Dan Kayajan. The parish and school staff were joined by the first graders from St. Lawrence Catholic School, along with many fathers and parents who remained after the Dad’s Mass earlier in the morning. This was the third annual Dad’s Mass tradition, in which fathers of children at St. Lawrence Catholic School are invited to attend weekday Mass with their child and participate in the liturgy together. The first-graders and their families in attendance were thrilled to share their weekly morning mass with their dads!
After Mass, each first-grader was invited to participate in the blessing of the saint statues. Each child was given a white rose to place at the foot of a statue while Father Dan blessed the statues with Holy Water. This special, prayerful morning united faith, family, and our parish-school community.
St. Lawrence would like to extend a special thanks everyone involved in planning these special moments for our parish and school!
