HURRICANE IRMA COLLECTION

This weekend we will have a second collection for the victims of Hurricane Irma.

These funds will be used in the affected areas to support humanitarian aid, provide assistance with long-term efforts to restore communities after widespread destruction, and for the pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church in the US and the Caribbean.

PRAY THE HOLY ROSARY

Come Pray the Holy Rosary in English on Mondays at 5:30 - 6:10 PM in the church.

Celebrate the centennial year of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima and let us respond to Her urgent invitation to pray for the conversion of all who do not know the love of God, for peace on earth, and for the triumph of the immaculate hearts of Mary and Jesus.

DONATIONS

We are looking for some generous donations in order to raise $5,000 to improve our choir sound system. Our current console is very outdated. Your generosity is appreciated.

STEWARDSHIP

Stewardship Saint - St. Thomas of Villanova

Saint Thomas was born in 1488. A thirst for the science of the Saints led him to enter the house of the Agustinian Friars at Salamanca. Charles V listened to him, an oracle, and appointed him Archbishop of Valencia.

On being led to his throne in church, he pushed the silken cushions aside, and with tears kissed the ground. His first visit as Archbishop was to the prison. The money he was given to furnish his house was given to the public hospital instead. As a child, he gave meals to the poor. As Archbishop, two thirds of his episcopal revenues were spent in alms to the poor. He fed hundreds of people daily, took in orphans and sheltered them with a mother’s care. He encouraged the wealthy to imitate his example and be richer in mercy and charity than they were in earthly possessions. He passed away in 1555.

RCIA IS AN INVITATION!

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the pathway for adults (over 18 years) to become Catholics. Becoming Catholic is not about joining a “club”. To become Catholic is your response to God’s invitation to participate fully in the celebration of His love and life through the Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, and even marriage! Make the choice to allow God to work in your life. You will soon see a change in your personal attitude, perception, and intent. The first choice is to say “yes”! Simply say “yes” to God’s call and invite Him in.

There is no time like the present to make the call! Weekly meetings begin Monday, October 2nd from 7:00pm to 8:30pm in the Pastoral Center.

Contact the Office of Religious Education, Sister Maria Andrea srmandrea@stakb.org, or Alida Kurzan akurzan@stakb.org at 305-361-1379, or contact R.C.I.A. Coordinator at 305-205-8943.

ARE YOU WALKING WITH CHRIST?

A Seminar with Jeff Cavins

Friday, October 27, 2017 & Saturday, October 28, 2017

As Catholics, our faith is meant to be put into practice. Christianity is more than a set of beliefs; it is a way of life. Walking Toward Eternity is a powerful seminar that will help you to put your faith into practice, draw closer to Christ, and challenge yourself to make real and lasting changes in your life, changes that will help you to become the person you hope to be. Jeff Cavins is the creator of The Great Adventure Bible Study Program, an author, and the host of Holy Land pilgrimages.
