Bishop Gregory L. Parkes announces the following clergy changes, effective July 1, 2021 unless otherwise indicated. See the list below or on our website here: Reverend Alexander T. Padilla, II, from Parochial Vicar of Christ the King Parish, Tampa to the Pastoral Center, St. Petersburg. Father Padilla has been assigned to the faculty of St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary, Boynton Beach.


It’s May already, can you believe how time flies? If you haven’t heard already, Fr. Padilla will be moving to St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary to teach on faculty there. Even though we are sad to lose him, we know God has the most extraordinary plan in mind for him. As we say goodbye to Fr. Padilla at the end of next month, we are excited to be welcoming Fr. Andrew Burns from New Jersey to take his place. We hope you’ll keep them both in your prayers!




Fr. Padilla will be giving his farewell Mass Sunday, June 27th at 12:30pm followed by a reception in the pavilion for all of the parishioners. We hope to see you there!
