To be a disciple is to have faith and follow Jesus.

After Christ asks, Who do you say that I am?
Peter answers, You are the Christ. Let our profession of faith be the same. And then, as James implores us, let us demonstrate that commitment to our faith by our words and actions.

Good News about Religious Education!

September 19th is Catechetical Sunday and our Catechists will be blessed by Father Luis at the 10:00 Mass as they begin their ministry, teaching your children.

Please plan on being there as Father will call up the children and the parents before the congregation! Parents are the first teachers of their children in everything, especially in learning about our Faith.

Yes, September is a busy month!

See you in church!

Father, all the elements of nature obey Your commands.
Protect us and all Your people
During this season of storms and hurricanes.

Help us to see You
In all we may encounter,
And help us to minister to each other
In Your Name.
Through Christ Our Lord,

The Archdiocese of Miami’s guidelines for masks and social distancing have not changed. Vaccinated people can get COVID. Whether they can then transmit the virus to others, is unclear.

In addition to providing our parishioners with the option to view our Masses online, we are also simulcasting our weekend Masses outside at the church entrance and throughout our gardens for those who cannot find comfortable space in the church building and for those who prefer to socially distance outdoors.

“Listen, my beloved brothers and sisters. Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?” - James 2: 5

Discrimination and prejudice are evils in our society. To be Christian disciples and good stewards, we must understand the kingdom of God is open to ALL who love Him.
