We are a Why Catholic Parish!
One of the greatest benefits of Small Faith Communities (SFC) is their witness as Catholics taking responsibility for their own faith life and spiritual growth. Recently I was an observer at a parish Small Christian Community meeting that was setting its vision for the future. The members felt that the Church's call for the new evangelization and the witness given by Pope Francis in living out the faith was an opportunity to revisit their roots.
At the conclusion of the conference, the following vision emerged: "The root of the Small Christian Community is responding to being called to live a life of Christian values, to carry a sense of the Lord today, and witness a renewal of vision."
The Why Catholic program was implemented by the Archdiocese of Miami in our parish in February 2014. It is a four year program.
“For it is by God’s grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God’s gift, so that no one can boast about it”

2017 Archbishop’s Charity and Development Drive (ABCD) Begins
One in Faith, One in Hope, One in Charity
Understanding that we are made in the image and likeness of God can help us to understand why God put into the humanity of every man and woman the vocation – and thus the capacity and the responsibility – of love and communion. To live out this vocation requires a growth in virtue that leads us to make gifts of ourselves to God and to others. Your faithful and generous participation in the ABCD flows from God’s many blessings to you and to those you hold dear. Next weekend is the 2017 ABCD Commitment weekend. The ABCD supports all of the vital ministries and programs throughout the Archdiocese of Miami, and it is our one opportunity during the year to support all the people of God beyond the boundary of our own parish.
Please prayerfully consider supporting the ABCD. Your gift directly helps our parish to pay its share of the important work of the archdiocese. Let us strive for 100% participation: not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice!
We invite you to join us to be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.
