St. Thomas University's "Thriving in Ministry Program" would like to invite you to apply for their 2021-2022 Pastoral Cohort of Thriving in Ministry.  They are accepting 60 leaders who are embracing a call to ministry as priests, religious, deacons and lay ministers in their first 10 years of service into their fully funded pastoral enrichment program.

For the past forty years, the School of Theology and Ministry at St. Thomas University has been educating and preparing men and women for full-time ministry in the Catholic Church and other denominations.  They are known and recognized by local parishes and communities of faith for their formation of Christian leaders and efforts to foster evangelization and ministry.  

 

Thriving in Ministry will help to enrich pastoral work in a variety of contexts as ministry leaders are further equipped to respond to the real needs in their parishes and communities.   To apply and secure your place in this year's cohort group, go to their website.

Sessions will be held on the first Thursday of the month from 10am-1pm beginning in August 2021 and going through May 2022.  The sessions will be held at Saint Thomas University and the program is fully funded by Lilly Endowment, Inc.

Archbishop's Charity Drive 2021

2020 has certainly been a challenging year.  Yet, despite all obstacles, the Church remains 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.

Some of the members of our first parish Walking With Moms team met with Father Steve recently as we build and grow this exciting new ministry.  What does it mean for us to be a "Walking With Moms Parish"?  It means that we have joined a national initiative via our commitment to literally walk in the shoes of pregnant (and parenting) women in need of support in our parish and surrounding community becoming a more intentional resource to these women and their children.

The fact is that every one of us is called to be that support, yet how can we unless we know how.  Part of our commitment will also include providing our parish community with information to educate ourselves as to how we can each be a part of this worthy movement by helping make our parish a welcoming place and space for moms in need of our support, especially when they need us most.

While we are fortunate to have a wonderful Respect Life Pregnancy Center nearby that we support and we will be working closely with, it takes an entire community to support, as well as find and share other resources with pregnant and parenting women, especially those in most need of help, perhaps even place the many gifts in our parish community at the service of life by creating new resources and ways to help!

We hope you will join us on this exciting journey of hope for moms in our area and their families as people of life.  If you are interested in finding out more, or if you are a parishioner wanting to join our team, please contact the parish office at 954-475-8046 or Angela Curatalo one of the Core Team Members.

THE HYDE AMENDMENT​

The Hyde Amendment has protected Americans from funding abortion for 45 years.  It's credited with saving the lives of over 2.4 million children to date.  Now, members of Congress want to take away this law which will enable billions of taxpayer dollars to go to paying for abortions.  Please sign the petition  below telling Congress not to use taxpayer money to fund abortions.

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 suffer from the disease of addiction.  I personally am deeply grateful for the caring and dedicated staff there for the treatment I received for my alcohol addiction, and support I continue to receive in recovery.  In this Easter season, as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and the new life that it means for us, may we offer the support we can to Guest House for the new life it offers to priests and religious from their Good Friday experience of addiction.

Father Steve
