Diocesan Convention Affirms New Mission: Church of the Apostles

On October 16, 2021, at the 2021 Annual Convention of the Diocese of Southwest Florida, the Parrish Episcopal Church mission officially organized as Church of the Apostles, The Episcopal Church in Parrish Florida.

The Diocesan convention affirmed the name and the congregation status as an Associated Worshipping Community. It is an exciting milestone in our journey.

O God the Creator and ruler of all things, your reign grows like a mustard seed into abundant life: Bless those who plant and tend the new life of your Church, that it may become a place of welcome, a refuge of healing, a school for souls, and a life-giving spring; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ, our strength and our salvation.  Amen. (The Book of Occasional Services 2003, p. 249)
