Resurrection Catholic Church & School is a vibrant Catholic community that came together in 1963 and continues to grow every day in members and in Faith. Our school has excelled in providing children a rich educational and spiritual environment. Our parish is a warm, encouraging and inspiring place to call home.  We look forward to many years of continuing service in the Lakeland Community.

Nourished by Word and Eucharist, we live to Know, Love and Serve Jesus Christ, the Risen Lord!

Tolton: From Slave to Priest is a powerful one-man multi-media play on the life of Father Augustus Tolton, the first African American priest (1854-1897). Father Tolton’s compelling story offers encouragement and hope to our world, so desperately in need of reconciliation and healing. It is much more than an inspirational story – Father Tolton’s example offers a key to unlocking the division that plagues our society.

The play features a full cast of characters on a video screen who interact with actor Jim Coleman live on stage. This unique format is visually engaging while also retaining the personal effect of a live performance. Audiences leave the show feeling that they have “met” Father Tolton. The production is enhanced by an original soundtrack based on traditional African American spirituals, orchestrated by composer Tony Manfredonia.

Resurrection Catholic School

The mission of Resurrection Catholic School is to instill the values of the Catholic faith by providing spiritual and scholastic experiences which encourage respect, compassion, service, and lifelong learning.

We would love for you to join our school community!  Click here to learn more about our school or here to register today!

Resurrection Catholic School fosters a learning community which recognizes the uniqueness of each individual and builds self-esteem and self-confidence of the whole child.  We challenge every student to grow to their fullest God-given potential through involvement in academic, cultural, service-oriented, and spiritual pursuits.  Resurrection strongly believes that each student can achieve academic excellence and we hold all our students to high standards.  Recognizing that our students bring a multitude of strengths and a range of interests, we strongly support a differentiated learning approach guided by student aptitude and learning-style to ensure that each student is properly educated. Both inside and outside of the classroom we train our students to be role-models and leaders in areas of personal behavior, service, and faith.  From the student uniforms and conduct policy to the attitudes and actions of our caring and dedicated faculty, all our school efforts are focused on supporting this mission. Finally, we believe the parents are the first and primary educators of their children.  We strongly encourage parent involvement both at home and in the school.
