Am I an "active member " of Saint David Parish? With graduation from Saint David Catholic School right around the corner, many of the students will be continuing their Catholic education at a local Catholic High School. As active Catholics, you are eligible for tuition discounts. In order to be considered an active, participating member of the parish and thus eligible for this reduced tuition rate, Saint David Catholic Church takes into account a family's or individual's Mass attendance as well as their ministry involvement.
Since weekly offertory envelopes are the primary means of determining if parishioners are regularly attending Mass, we ask you to place your envelopes in the collection box each Sunday even if you cannot make a monetary contribution. Online donating is also a convenient option for parishioners. This can be done using the link at the top of the website. Attendance at Mass is the most meaningful way we model and live our Catholic faith.
Registration can be done by using the online link also located at the top of the website or in the Parish Office. You may also be asked to be a sacramental sponsor. You must be a registered, contributing member for at least 3 months before a certificate of eligibility can be provided.
We would love to have you as a member of the Saint David Parish Family. Please contact the Parish Office should you have any questions at 954-475-8046. Thank you and God Bless.

IN SOLIDARITY WITH
THE WORLD IN NEED
The Church is called to be an "advocate of justice and of the poor" in the face of intolerable social and economic inequalities, which "cry to heaven". Your gift to the ABCD helps the Church here in South Florida to walk with the poor as their friend. Your support of the ABCD changes lives and through its many works of tenderness, compassion and mercy you make Christ's kingdom real for so many.
ABCD is Love translated into concrete gestures and actions by helping those in need with the means to overcome difficulties and obstacles. ABCD reintroduces Hope into the world by assisting the widow, the orphan, the alien, the oppressed and the poor. ABCD also is charity fostered into unity and fraternity to support the many ministries of the Catholic Church in the three counties of our Archdiocese.
ABCD is Universal. Programs served through the ABCD invest in the lives of others. We serve not because they are Catholic, but because we are Catholic.
Please make a donation to the ABCD today. Every gift makes a difference.
Thank you and God bless you.

THE SAINTS & THE PARISH
TAKE A LOOK AT THE HISTORY AND ART BEHIND OUR PARISH THAT HAS BEEN PUBLISHED ON THE ADOM WEBSITE.
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.
