We, the Catholic Church of the Incarnation in the Roman Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg, share in the Mission of Christ Jesus on the West Coast of Florida, that Mission being the glorification of the Father through the Son and in the Holy Spirit.

We believe in a celebration of God’s presence as we worship together. We believe that Sacraments should be fully celebrated as real events in our lives and that the Holy Eucharist is the center of our life. We acknowledge the special gift we have been given in Mary as a mother, a model and an intercessor.

We believe in the sacredness of life from the moment of conception to the moment of death. We believe in the sacredness of the family. We believe, as disciples of Jesus, that we are called as individuals to serve our Parish Family, our local community and people everywhere.

We believe that we are stewards of all that the Lord has put in our care. Using our Time, Talents and Treasure to serve all people of various cultures and backgrounds to build the Kingdom of God is integral to our vocation as Christians.

We believe in the effectiveness of small groups working and leavening within the larger framework of the Parish Family. Our goal, under the direction of our pastor, priests, deacons, religious and lay leaders is to provide Religious Education for all people with special emphasis on our youth, our Catholic School and our Religious Education Program for Public School children.

We believe that the Catholic Church is the Universal Church of Jesus Christ and we pledge our obedience and loyalty to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church guided by the Holy Spirit of God, our Holy Father and our Bishop and their successors.
