Hurricane Dorian Relief

In response to the devastation that has impacted the Bahamas and other areas that have yet to be impacted, the Diocese of St. Petersburg is asking for donations for their Disaster Relief Fund. One hundred percent of these disaster relief funds will benefit people affected by natural disasters including Hurricane Dorian. In 2018, the Diocese of St. Petersburg donated $300,000 to the victims of Hurricane Michael in Pensacola-Tallahassee.

Severe Weather Updates – Parish Closings and Cancellations

Severe Weather Updates – Parish Closings and Cancellations

Hurricane season begins June 1st and runs through November 30th.

St. Patrick Catholic Church follows the closures of Hillsborough County Schools for all severe weather emergencies or precautionary safety procedures. During a severe weather emergency, updates to our parish website will be made daily to keep you up to date on Parish Closures and Meeting Cancellations. Please remember the safety of our parish family and community is most important. Be safe and God Bless.

Mass Attendance:
All parishioners are urged to use good judgement when planning to travel to and from Mass. In the event that roadways are not clear and weather conditions are unsafe to travel, the faithful are reminded that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass does not apply when there is grave difficulty in fulfilling this obligation (see Code of Canon Law, Canon 1248 §2)

Parish Ministry Cancellation Notices:

  • None at this time.

There are two websites that are helpful for both hurricane planning and detailed weather information as a storm approaches. The Hillsborough County Emergency Management Office website is www.hillsboroughcounty.org/emergency  and the National Hurricane Center website is www.nhc.noaa.gov/. At the National Hurricane Center website you can pull up and watch things like the 3-day and 5-day cones for approaching storms. At the Hillsborough County website you can sign up for their E-News which is an automatic e-mail service which keeps you up-to-date with pertinent local emergency management information if you like.

Safety Precautions

  • During any heavy rainfall or severe weather event, the City of Tampa encourages the motoring public to heed traffic advisories, obey traffic signs/detours, and to exercise caution when driving in and around standing water.
  • Do not drive through water  it is difficult to determine how deep the water is.
  • It is best to avoid driving unless necessary.
  • Treat non-functioning traffic signals as a 4-way stop.
  • If you see a road closed, please follow the detour signs.
  • Avoid any downed or hanging power lines – they may be live.

Stay up-to-date

  • Residents should also stay tuned to local television and radio stations for more information as severe weather approaches.
