The Florida Page

Florida, also known as the Roman Catholic Ecclesiastical Province of MiamiWelcome to the Florida Page! There are quite a few resources online listing Traditional Latin Masses or related groups, some active, many not. Here we aspire to provide links to Florida Roman Catholic entities, groups and supporting sites, sorted by Diocese, that are available online and are truly a resource in some way. The idea is to pull together a sense of community online, and point people on the web to local, useful information and resources. The area that is the State of Florida is known to the Church as the Roman Catholic Ecclesiastical Province of Miami, and, whatever you call it, that’s what we hope to concentrate on with this page. Definitely send in a Florida-related link if you think it belongs here or make a comment at the bottom of the page and we’d be happy to check it out! Thanks for visiting!

  2. Some Comments from Don Ryan on the Most holy Redeemer group postings listed under Diocese of St. Petersburg, above.

    The Most Holy Redeemer Latin class meets on Thursday evening at 6:30 in the parish center. The church is located at 10110 North Central Avenue. Beginning, intermediate, and advanced students are welcome. The textbook is Wheelock’s Latin, by Frederic M. Wheelock. Students also use a reading book, Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata Pars I Familia Romana, by Hans Orberg. The advanced group is reading Orberg’s Roma Aeterna, which features passages from Roman authors. Each class begins with Catholic prayers, such as Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Salve Regina, and others; a reading of the Gospel of the week from the Vulgate Bible follows. Sometimes there is a second reading from Christian or classical sources. After this, the students divide into their individual groups. This free class was founded at Most Holy Redeemer parish in June of 1995 and is available to anyone interested in Latin.

    Mensa Latina is a Latin conversation group at MHR parish on Sunday morning at 9.
    No previous experience in Latin is required to join this group. Visitors are welcome to listen, but are asked to refrain from speaking in English or other vernacular languages during the session. The purpose of this group is to offer an immersion experience in Latin and to develop fluency in the language. The topics of conversation vary widely.
