Please read the following message from Fr. Tapp:
On Tuesday of last week, the Priest Personnel Board from the diocese contacted me and asked me to consider taking a new assignment. After much prayer, discernment, and a very long talk with our Vicar General, I said I would honor their request. I will be going to Nativity Parish in Brandon. If you want to see what the parish is like, their website address is: www.nativitycatholicchurch.org.
It is with mixed emotions that I leave Holy Family Parish. I have been ministering here for eleven years and my family and church roots are here in St. Petersburg. I am sad to leave my family and such good friends and faithful parishioners. But, taking on a new assignment is part and parcel of the way of life for a priest. God has always seemed to guide me in whatever work I have done throughout my 30 years in ministry. I am confident he is doing the same as I start this new “adventure.” I am not sure when I will leave. Those details are still being worked out with the Bishop and the Vicar General. More than likely, it will be around July 1st. In the meantime, pray that the Holy Spirit will guide our Personnel Board with wisdom as they assign the next pastor to Holy Family Parish.
Please continue to keep me in your prayers as well. I have always been grateful for your support, prayers, and faithful witness. I will continue to remember you in my prayers each day.
