Fr. Anthony Dorsa is from San Antonio, Texas. He was ordained a priest on the feast of St. Philip Neri May 26th, 2017 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Originally discerning a Franciscan vocation in his teenage years, it wasn’t until his later teens that he discovered the richness and beauties of the traditional Latin liturgy. It was here that he began to discern a vocation to the priesthood centered on the perennial treasures of the Church's liturgy. Soon he found out about the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and entered Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in September of 2010. Before Seminary Fr. Dorsa was a full time Cook for a gambit of cuisines and a hobbyist classical violinist, playing concerts even in Austria and the Czech Republic.
Fr. Dorsa is finishing the screening procedures for working in the diocese and should be available for public masses and confessions this Tuesday or Wednesday. He will not be present at this Sunday's masses
Despite the hiatus from public masses, we still received 14 new household registrations over the last 3 months (April-1, May-3, June-10).
And despite the restrictions on mass attendance, with the addition of a 4th Sunday Mass at St. William's, and the use of the main church at Resurrection, our June average is equal to what it was last year (Naples- 224, Fort Myers- 119)
Funds for your future parish home continue to grow, thanks to your generosity.
As of June 30th our current total is 1,504,054, which is an increase of over 1 million dollars in less than a year after announcing the approval for the project! The building fund accrues a 3.25% interest, and all donations go un-taxed, exclusively to that goal. Please visit and share our web page with updates on the project and goals.
Quarterly breakdown will be published soon
A reminder that Fr. Romanoski is alone this week, until the new assistant Fr. Dorsa arrives on Friday. Confessions will be heard before mass and by appointment, but not during mass. From Monday - Friday there will only be one mass at 515pm.
Sung Mass this Sunday (June 28) at 4:30pm- St. WIlliam; Monday 5:15pm- Sung Mass Sts. Peter and Paul
This Sunday will be Fr. Passo's last Sunday Sung Mass whereby it will be celebrated at St. William's at 4:30pm to provide a larger venue with more seating. No need to sign up as the church at half capacity provides space for more than 400 people.
The 8:45am Mass at St. Agnes will be a low Mass.
Fr. Passo will also celebrate a Sung Mass on Monday, June 29th, for Sts. Peter and Paul at St. Agnes, chapel at 5:15pm. This is his last scheduled public Mass. One must sign up for that Mass as there is still a limit of 90 people in the chapel.
As Fr. Passo departs on July 1st, and Fr. Dorsa arrives on July 10th, we will return to the sole 5:15pm Mass from July 2nd onward. As the chapel fits 90 people at 50% capacity, there will be plenty of room for our normal weekday mass attendance.

His Excellency, Bishop Frank Dewane has decided to extend the dispensation for the Diocese of Venice from attending Sunday Mass through September 1, at which time it will be reevaluated.
He likewise repeats the instruction that the faithful are to wear masks while at Mass to take greater precaution of avoiding any spreading of virus to one´s neighbor at this time.
Again, anyone who is at risk, vlunerable, sick, are encouraged to stay home and sanctify the day as best one can- e.g. watching a livemass transmission, praying the rosary, etc.
Our priests are available for any personal pastoral attention one might need.
Sunday masses celebrated in the main churches at Resurrection and St. William have plenty of space to spread out. Likewise masses during the week at St. Agnes average around 40-50 in attendance, which one can freely attend instead of Sunday mass which is not obliging at this time.
