I am a visitor to St. Stephen's Church when I come to Florida and it's my church away from home.

Monsignor Scully often celebrated Mass when I was in attendance. I will certainly miss him and keep him in my prayers.

His name will be written in November at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at the University of Notre Dame du Lac in South Bend, Indiana.

God has brought you home, Monsignor Scully. Rest in Peace.

We feel blessed to have had Msgr.Scully
come to our Lunch Bunch at St.Stephen's
every month. He always shared his love of The Blessed Mother and how important it is for us to pray to Her and to say the Rosary every day.
We shall miss him and know that we have a special Angel watching over us .

I first heard about Monsignor Scully's passing while he was celebrating Mass at 3:00 P.M. 10/22 on Spirit FM. I was shocked and saddened to lose such a wonderful and such a holy priest from our Parish, but then I thought what a beautiful way for such a holy priest to go home to the Lord. When he celebrated Mass, his voice was so powerful and so strong - you wanted to catch every word. I went to confession with him a weeks ago and he made it so easy - he gave me a brochure of Catholic...

Monsignor Scully meant the world to my family. He helped found St Patricks church where my Grandparents attended. Mryl and Chrystal McAdam opened their home and lives to Monsignor Scully, however at that time it was Father Scully. My Mom, Mary Lou McAdam Byerley and Dad, William H. Byerley Jr. were married by Father Scully and I was baptised by him as well. My family kept in touch with Monsignor Scully from the 50's to the very end. We always enjoyed hearing from him especially when he...

Monsignor Scully, you are now where you should be, next to our Lord and Savior. I remember many happy sermons you gave at St.Patrick's School in South Tampa. You are the true meaning of beliving in God. Rest in Peace and welcome home! LynnMarie Boltze

Monsignor Scully, such a beautiful holy priest who cared so much for all. Always present before the Holy Sacrament that it was no wonder our Lord brought him home during the consecration of the Mass. We will all miss him greatly but will be able to pray to Monsignor to intercede for us.

May the perpetual light shine upon Monsignor Scully.

St Stephen Catholic Church was blessed to have benefit of his wisdom. We rejoice that the Lord called his humble servant during morning Mass. To the Scully family - Thank you for allowing his parishoners to celebrate their faith with his ministry. You were always in his prayers. May the Lord bless you in this time of grief.
