An Important Message from Father David DeJulio:
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Today, August 23, 2021, a COVID-19 test was administered to me, and I was informed that the test came back positive.
In order to ensure the safety of our parish community, I will self-quarantine until I have been cleared to return to public ministry. Updates will be provided as they become available.
While we are all taking COVID-19 seriously and taking many precautions to prevent the spread of infection on our campus, the risk of coming into contact with coronavirus remains, particularly in light of the increasing number of positive cases, resulting from the delta variant. Individuals and families should take personal responsibility to protect themselves. A resource page from the Diocese of St. Petersburg, offering protocols for safety in our parishes can be found on the following link: https://www.dosp.org/protocols-for-safety-continue-in-catholic-churches/.
If you are concerned that you might have been infected, I would advise you to contact your physician for proper guidance, including testing if your doctor feels it is warranted.
Let us continue to pray for all who are facing illness or the loss of a loved one, for an end to the pandemic and for the peace of Christ to reign in our hearts.
