Welcome to the Florida Page! The area that is the State of Florida is known to the Church as the Roman Catholic Ecclesiastical Province of Miami.
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.
First among these we hope to be able to provide current information about Traditional Latin Masses (“TLM”) in the State.
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 and update our information if needbe! Thanks for visiting!
