ABCD 2022 logo_edited.jpg

ABCD (Archbishop's Charity Drive)
What is ABCD?
ABCD is Love....
ABCD is Hope....
ABCD is Charity ....

ABCD supports the many ministries of the Catholic Church in three counties of our Archdiocese - these ministries represent concrete ways in which we perform what are called the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.  Through your support of the ABCD,  you help our Catholic Church here in South Florida reach out to those brothers and sisters Jesus speaks about in the Gospel.  ABCD is our Catholic Charities, our religious education programs, our Catholic Schools.  ABCD is the support of our seminarians and priests.  ABCD is in our marriage preparation programs, and our lay ministries that form people to minister to the bereaved, the homebound, the needy.  ABCD exists because of the generosity of people like yourselves, people who in good times and in bad times keep their support of the Church on their list of major priorities.  Please consider making a donation to the ABCD today.  Every gift makes a difference.  Thank you and God Bless.
 

Donation forms can be found in the entrances to the church
or in the Parish Office. 

abcd 2022 THERMOMETER.JPG

I wish to thank you for your support for the Archbishop Charities and Development Drive, ABCD, especially given the financial hardships that many are facing.  However, since we are still far short of our goal this year, which is even less than in previous years, I would like to appeal to those who have not yet made a pledge or contribution to consider doing so.  This will not only support the ministries and services of the ADOM, but will also help our parish, since the parish has to pay the shortfall amount between the annual goal and the amount collected, which last year was almost $34,000.00

                                                                                     God Bless,
                                                                                      Fr. Steve

Given the low incidences of coronavirus cases in our community, the Archdiocese of Miami has updated its protocols for churches.

 

Effective March:

The use of face masks is optional regardless of vaccination status and social distancing will no longer be enforced.  Other precautionary measures such as hand-sanitizing and frequent handwashing are still strongly recommended, as are vaccinations for all those who have not been fully vaccinated: 

"We continue to encourage all to get vaccinated as this offers the best way of putting this pandemic behind us," the archbishop says.

Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center is a monastery and retreat house belonging to the Congregation of the Passion (C.P.).  The Congregation of the Passion, or Passionists, are a religious congregation of the Catholic Church founded by St. Paul of the Cross in 1725.  The mission of the Passionists is to preserve and make present the message that Jesus loves us, and his passion, death and resurrection are the ultimate sign of that love.  The Passionists do this by preaching in the community and inviting members of the community to make a retreat at their monasteries and retreat homes.  To learn more about Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center, click on the link below.

Guest House provides information, education, treatment and care needed to assure that Catholic clergy, men and women religious, and seminarians suffering from alcoholism, addictions, and other behavioral health conditions have the best opportunity for quality recovery and overall health and wellness.

Guest House is located in Lake Orion, MI and treats Catholic clergy and religious from across the United States and around the world.  Although Guest House does bill for the services and treatments provided, each year more than one million dollars of uncompensated care is provided to those in need, no one has ever been turned away.  There is a great need for the support of the lay faithful to be able to fulfill the commitment each year to provide the care needed for the clergy and religious.   
 
Additional information regarding the mission and ministry of Guest House can be found by visiting the website.  

 

On a Personal Note...
Please join me in supporting Guest House and its treatment program for priests and religious who, like me, suffer from the disease of addiction.  I am deeply grateful for the treatment I received for my alcohol addiction, and support I continue to receive in recovery, from the caring and dedicated staff of the Guest House Program. With faith in the resurrection of our Lord and the new life that it means for all of us, may we offer the support we can to Guest House for the new life it gives to priests and religious from their Good Friday experience of addiction.
Father Steve
