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 some-
one 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
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 parish office.
Today's scriptures emphasize the fundamental link between love of God
and love of our neighbors, especially those who are most in need. Love
of God should compel us to love the people whom God cherishes. Con-
versely, work for justice and charity for those in need should be rooted
in our love of God.
That connection and balance, however, isn't always easy to maintain in
our lives. Even in religious orders we find that some Christians are more
oriented toward contemplation and prayer, while others are more active
in reaching out to those who are oppressed. Today Jesus reminds us of
the necessity for both in the life of faith.
You shall not oppress an alien, for you
yourselves were once aliens in Egypt
I love you, Lord, my strength (Psalm 18).
You became imitators of the Lord, so that
you became a model for all believers
(1 Thessalonians 1:5c-10).
You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart,
and you shall love your neighbor as yourself
