About Us

Ave Maria Parish and our Iconic Church

Ave Maria Quasi Parish was established in the Diocese of Venice, Florida in 2008 by Bishop Frank J. Dewane. According to the Code of Canon Law, "a quasi-parish is equivalent to a parish; a quasi-parish is a definite community of the Christian faithful in a particular church, entrusted to a priest as its proper pastor but not yet erected as a parish because of particular circumstances."  

 

The unique church building was dedicated on March 31, 2008 by Bishop Frank J. Dewane.

 

On January 19, 2017 Bishop Frank J. Dewane raised the Quasi Parish and Oratory to full Church and Parish status. On the same day he installed Rev. Cory A. Mayer as the new parish's first pastor.  Rev. Cory A. Mayer had served previously as the pastor of the Quasi-Parish.    

Our parish is growing and we welcome you to join us by registering online.
