This Week

Announcements from our bulletin of April 25, 2021

Our Mission is to embrace God's Loving Mercy, embracing our diversity as we serve the needs of others.

We are God's children;
we are the flock of the Good Shepherd,
who lays down his life for us.

God loves us so much that we are not simply called God’s children, but in fact are God’s children now. This love is that of a good shepherd, who knows and cherishes his sheep, and who, unlike others, will sacrifice his own life for the safety of his flock.

Easter Sunday is the greatest of all Sundays, and Easter Time is the most important of all liturgical times. Easter is the celebration of the Lord's resurrection from the dead, culminating in his Ascension to the Father and sending of the Holy Spirit upon the Church.

There are 50 days of Easter from the first Sunday to Pentecost. It is characterized, above all, by the joy of glorified life and the victory over death expressed most fully in the great resounding cry of the Christian: Alleluia! All faith flows from faith in the resurrection: "If Christ has not been raised, then empty is our preaching; empty, too, is your faith." (1 Cor 15:14)

A Healthy Reminder

During Mass, please do not hold hands or exchange the Sign of Peace. While preaching or at the altar the celebrant will not use a face mask, but he and other ministers will when they distribute Holy Communion. (If anyone disagrees about the necessity of wearing a face mask, I would ask that person to wear it anyway out of respect for and charity towards their fellow parishioners.)

If you are sick or have flu like symptoms, stay home. If you are frail because of age or are vulnerable because of an underlying condition, or you are a caretaker or someone who is, it might be reasonable for you to stay home. If you are fearful, stay home.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Thomas Wenski
Archbishop of Miami
