    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 in advance.

    Ministrations to the Sick

    We appreciate knowing when a parishioner is in the hospital or homebound. Please call the parish office.


    In the Gospel passage from John, Jesus appears twice to his disciples, and both times Jesus shows them his wounds from his crucifixion. Thomas actually touches the wounds. Jesus' wounds did not disappear after the Resurrection. Jesus meant for his followers to know that his sufferings, and ours, are part of our encounter with him. Jesus revealed how God is present in our human suffering, joining us in our most painful moments with consolation and with mercy. Suffering is a great mystery, and we cannot adequately explain or justify the many wounds we experience in life. However, in prayer God can open a way forward. The Holy Spirit might offer wisdom to perceive when or how our sufferings make healing or hope possible for others or for ourselves. When we enter into this mystery we follow Jesus, who radically trusted God to transform his sufferings into new life.

    The community of believers was of one heart and mind

    (Acts 4:32-35). Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting

    (Psalm 118). Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is begotten by God

    (1 John 5:1-6). The risen Christ comes to his disciples with peace and the Spirit.

    (John 20:19-31).

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    The Lord is truly risen, Alleluia!

    Many thanks for your generous response to our Easter collection. As Christ’s disciples, we are called to go forth and spread the good news of His Resurrection. Our Parish’s many ministries are examples of how many of you answer that call and share your gifts of time, talent and financial support.

    I would also like to thank all those involved in making our Easter Services so beautiful. The Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Organists, Soloists, Altar Servers, Ushers and Floral Arrangers are to be commended for sharing their gifts.

    May the Lord continue to Bless you and your families.

    Sincerely yours in Christ, Father Clem
