“Be still and feel the presence of God.”
W elcome to St. Bede's Episcopal Church, Saint Petersburg, Florida. We are part of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida and located in the northwest part of downtown St. Petersburg. For over sixty years, the Episcopal Church of St. Bede has been home to those who find comfort and spiritual guidance in the traditional Anglo-Catholic worship service. This is a Holy place where the presence of God can be felt through the liturgy and through Holy Communion in the Mass. The service music as well as the hymns and anthems are chosen to enhance the selected readings of the day. St. Bede’s would like to welcome all who want to be a part of this very special service where you can “Be still and feel the presence of God.” Come and join our St. Bede's church family for worship every Sunday at 10:00a.m. and Thursday for our Healing Service at 10:00a.m. We are an active church with many opportunities for service as we continue to reach out in our Community, our country, and in world missions. Our programs are on-going as we aim to become more Christ like in our life’s Journey. Directions • Contact

Members of St. Bede's ECW Branch attended the Luncheon and Presentation of "The West Meets the Middle East: A Cultural Experience" by Mary Stenov on April 5, 2017. Mary Stenov and her husband. spent 25 years living in and experiencing the way of life in Saudi Arabia. She explained much about the daily way of life for both men and women, since men and women are still separated from each other most of the time. Women are not allowed to have their skin seen by strangers thus the masks and full clothing covers are still worn. Many of her personal stories were shared with us. Much memoribelia was on displayed. Their use demonstrated.
