Masses have resumed
Masses with the faithful present have resumed. However, because of social distancing requirements and other restrictions ordered by the Archbishop and the City of Miami Beach that limit the capacity of the parish church, we will continue to stream Mass on this website according to our regular schedule for the benefit of those who are sick, are fearful or cannot attend Mass.
If you receive a text message or an e-mail from Fr. Roberto Cid asking for a favor, do not respond. It is a hoax!

Parishes are generally territorial, that is they include all the Christian faithful in a certain territory. The current limits of our parish territory are the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Biscayne Bay to the west, 17th Street to the south and 69th Street to the north. Therefore, if you live within our boundaries you are by the law of the Church a parishioner at St. Patrick.
