A study on the abused concept of “social justice” to be held May 12 in St. Pete, FL

This study on social justice is being held by Dr. McKalip, a Catholic man in the St. Petersburg, Florida.  He became concerned about an Alinsky-styled “community organization” in his area called F.A.S.T.  We posted a story about this previously (HERE.)

  • “Start To Finish Spine Care”, adjacent to Founders Corner at 431 Southwest BLVD N, ST. Petersburg Florida (SW corner of 4th St N and 62nd Ave. N, in between Washington and Jefferson Circles)
  • 10am-12pm, 5/12 and 5/26
  •  lunch will be served
  • RSVP here: dmckalip@neuro3.net

See the original post for this class (HERE.)  Be sure to share this information with friends you have in the Tampa Bay area (Clearwater, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Hillsborough County)

Help needed in challenging “FAST” Alinsky-style community organization in the Diocese of St. Petersburg

The Sun Beam Times is warning Catholics in the Diocese of St. Petersburg (in particular Pinellas county) about an Alinsky-styled community organization known as FAST.  This community organization is an affiliate of DART.  You can find FAST on our list of “socialist community organizations” by clicking HERE.

The Sun Beam Times website belongs to Dr. David McKalip.  He is a Catholic who is challenging FAST in his parish.  I personally spoke with Dr. McKalip last week.  He needs the help of faithful Catholics in the Tampa Bay area.  Click on his posts below to learn about the situation, see more posts and get his contact information:

Below is the list of twelve Catholic parishes involved with FAST per information from Sun Beam Times:

  1. Blessed Trinity Catholic Church
  2. Espiritu Santo Catholic
  3. Holy Cross Catholic
  4. Holy Family Catholic
  5. Most Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church
  6. Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church
  7. St. Brendan Catholic
  8. St. Cecelia Catholic
  9. St. Joseph Catholic Church
  10. St. Matthew Catholic Church
  11. St. Michael Catholic Church
  12. Transfiguration Catholic Church

The Sun Beam Times website was brought to my attention by Jo Joyce at Fidelity ’til Parousia, www.johntwo24-25.net, who works on defending the Church from Alinsky organizations.  Their website has alot of great and important information about the errors of this type of organizing.  Please check it out.

Additionally, Jo Joyce contacted me about the Sun Beam Times because she knew I grew up in the Diocese of St. Petersburg and still have family there.  As it turns out, the parish of my childhood;  Our Lady of Lourdes, appears to be involved in FAST.

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.
