WEEKLY COLLECTIONS

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR STEADFAST PARISHIONERS

Thank you for your continuing financial support through online e-Giving, and mailing your Envelopes to the Parish Office during social distancing restrictions. Our Church has returned to a normal Mass schedule, and we are happy that you can again come and be strengthened by the Body of Christ. 

 May God continue to bless and protect you and your loved ones. 

WELCOME BACK TO OUR EUCHARISTIC CELEBRATION

Dear Parish Family,

Please consider e-Giving.  e-Giving is an easy, fast and secure way of automatically giving your offertory or other contributions online using your checking account, credit card, or debit card.  The convenience of not having to worry about weekly envelopes or writing a check before you rush to attend Sunday Mass is absolutely valuable for many parishioners.

e-Giving guarantees the delivery of your offering on a timely basis, and in a predetermined fashion designed by you.  This saves the Parish the continuing escalating cost of printing and mailing envelopes.  However, you may still request envelopes if you so desire. 

If you decide that this is a convenient and time-saving way of making your offertories, please click HERE to register. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Accounting Department at 561-483-2440 Ext 1418. 

Thank you for supporting your Parish.  May God richly bless you.

2020 DSA

Thank you to all of you who have supported the DSA in the past, and have helped our Parish to meet its goal. The funds collected helped our Diocese of Palm Beach in assisting those in need the most, and provided funding for the various programs throughout the Diocese, from Catholic Charities to Seminarians formation. Please, consider participating in such a charitable endeavor as an expression of personal gratitude for the Lord’s countless blessings.

Our goal for this year is $177,000. Pledges and payments to date total $131,639 so the amount needed to reach our goal is $45,361. No matter how large or small the amount, your participation will help our Catholic Church build a better world, as Christ taught us.

Your Faith, Your Community, And The Census

Why am I hearing about the 2020 Census from my house of worship?

The census is a count of every person who lives in the United States and its territories. It happens every 10 years.  The U.S. Census Bureau is partnering with faith-based institutions to promote the 2020 Census. These institutions volunteered to help because they understand how important a complete count is for their congregants and community.

Being counted matters for you and your community regardless of your religious affiliation. The 2020 Census will determine how many representatives your state will have in Congress. Census results will also help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to states and communities each year for housing, schools, food assistance, health care, and other vital services.  Federal programs funded based on the census include those that address poverty, hunger, homelessness, child care, emergency services, and public safety.

We encourage you to complete the 2020 Census.  By law, all your answers must be kept confidential.

Please click HERE for more information.

ELECTION RESOURCES

 Catholic citizens are encouraged to meaningfully participate in building the culture of life. As the November 3, 2020 general election approaches, the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops (FCCB) and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will be sharing various election resources. Some of these resources are provided below:

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

BECOME A CCD CATECHIST

Please consider volunteering in our Religious Ed program during the next school year. We are always in need of teachers, assistants, office help, and traffic monitors. Teen Helpers are also needed. Help bring our children closer to Jesus. We will train you.

Serving at the Altar and assisting the Priest at Mass is an awesome privilege that allows children who have made their first communion to grow closer to God and serve the Church. Altar Servers get a “behind the scenes” look at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that few others will ever have. It is a great honor and a commitment on the part of the server and their families.

Anyone who is interested in serving should contact the Parish Office at 561-483-2440 to sign up for .

Volunteering is a rewarding way to serve your community. It challenges your spirit, fills your heart and enriches your life. Yours may be a renewed sense of purpose or possibly work to fill idle moments. Maybe it’s the opportunity to touch someone on a heartfelt level and be touched in return. If you would like to serve, please contact the Parish Office at 561-483-2440.
