The Synod of Bishops is a meeting of bishops from all over the world established by Pope Paul VI in 1965, in response to the desire of the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council to discuss doctrinal or pastoral matters. In April 2021 Pope Francis formally declared the XVI Synod of Bishops, which will take place between 2021 and 2023 and is titled "For a synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission." The Holy Father has asked that all dioceses around the world participate in the XVI Synod of Bishops by engaging the local Christian faithful in a process of discernment with regard to subjects of concern to the universal Church.
To learn more about the Synod click here:
The Synod begins with a parish consultive process in order to hear the voices of as many of the faithful as possible. To participate in this process online, please click the link below:

Archbishop's Charity Drive 2021
Many of us have certainly been going through some challenging times. Yet, despite all of our obstacles, we the Church remain a beacon of hope-a light to the world. Our faith is not confined to a physical building: the influence of the church does not stop at its front door. The Church, like God's love, extends far beyond its doors bringing Christ to you, wherever you are. Please prayerfully consider mirroring Christ's love by making a gift that allows the Archdiocese of Miami to help those in need. We are still way below our goal and any donation that you can make would be greatly appreciated and could make a huge difference in someone's life.
Please click here for the link to donate to the ABCD.
PLEASE GET VACCINATED
Given dropping rates of COVID-19 infections in South Florida, Archbishop Wenski has announced an easing of mask rules for Catholic churches in the Archdiocese of Miami, including Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties. The new rules permit those who are vaccinated to attend Mass without wearing masks while keeping in place mask requirements for everyone at other parish gatherings.
The new rules also retain the requirement of social distancing among different households, the skipping of the Sign of Peace, and the use of hand sanitizer by those entering the churches as well as those distributing Communion.
"We continue to encourage all to get vaccinated as this offers the best way of putting this pandemic behind us," the archbishop says.
Please see the attached flyer as well as websites to visit for more information.

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.
