Mission Diocese of Florida, The Old Catholic Church - Province of the United States (TOCCUSA)
St. Paul the Apostle and St. Francis of Assisi are now joined by five more Mission churches or communities; some are in their infancy and some are concepts.
The churches, communities and missions located in Florida are presently under the Episcopal Protection of the Most Reverend Robert T. Fuentes, who is the
Bishop of the Old Catholic Diocese of Napa in California.
Church families located in Florida are termed as a Mission Diocese as we expand and prepare for our future in this state. The principal locations are Clearwater and Spring Hill, two very popular tourist destination and relocation points in Florida. Others are planned in nearby cities and counties. We are part of the greater Tampa Bay metropolitan area, which is one of the most dynamic and growing regions in Florida.
We are a Catholic Church apart from the jurisdiction of the Vatican. His Holiness, the Pope is always in our prayers, as are all patriarchs of all churches. God blesses all churches of the world.
Mass during the week
If you are unable to attend Mass on Sunday, please offer your input as we contemplate the addition of
