Are you registered in the parish? Please do not take for granted that you are registered in the parish just because
you attend mass here. If we have no record of your parish membership it could be quite embarrassing to us, or to
you or your family, when someone wishes to make wedding plans, have a baby baptized, or if you have been asked
to act as a sponsor for baptism or confirmation. Please fill out a census form, which is located at the entrances of the
Multi Celebrational Building (MCB), and mail it to the parish office, or place it in the collection basket.
Baptisms are celebrated on Sunday after the
12:00 Noon Mass. Parents must be registered
and active members of the parish for at least
three months. No confirmed dates are given
before approval by the pastor. Contact the
parish office two months in advance.
Godparents must be confirmed, practicing,
Roman Catholics and must obtain a sponsor
certificate from their parish.
In order to avoid disappointments, do not
book travel plans with family, Godparents,
etc. until a confirmed date has been assigned
through the parish office (561) 966-8878.
Notify the parish office at least four months
Ministrations to the Sick
We appreciate knowing when a parishioner is
in the hospital or homebound. Please call the
If there is one word that stands out in today's readings, it is
"covenant." God's faithfulness and goodness serve as examples
to us of how to live. Genesis tells the story of Noah and of God's
covenant not only with all people, but with all of nature. Never
will the cleansing waters of the flood bring their destructive
power to all the earth again. The sign, the reminder to both God
and nature, is the
rainbow in the heavens.
The psalm reminds us of this compassion of God, and begs God
to remember us, not because of our goodness, but because of
God's goodness and fidelity to the promise. God shows us how
to be good, not by decree, but by example.
God's covenant with Noah when he was delivered from the flood
Your ways, O Lord, are love and truth
to those who keep your covenant (Psalm 25).
The water of the flood prefigured baptism, which saves you now
(1 Peter 3:18-22).
This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand
