Gospel reading Mark 9:2-10

Second Sunday of Lent - March 1, 2015

Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no fuller on earth could bleach them. Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses, and they were conversing with Jesus.

Then Peter said to Jesus in reply, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here! Let us make three tents: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified. Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them; from the cloud came a voice, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.”

Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them. As they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone, except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what rising from the dead meant.

First Sunday of Lent - February 22, 2015

Dear Parishioners,

The Holy Season of Lent

“For you have given your children a sacred time for the renewing and purifying of their hearts” (Preface)

Lent is a time for coming closer to Christ: Attend daily Mass…Pray daily…Read the Bible daily…Reflect on God’s infinite love…Pray the Way of the Cross…Attend the Parish Mission…Make a Good Confession…Fast…Give Alms…Help those in Need…Be charitable in Thought and Word to All.

Lenten Resolution: He Was in the Desert

Live in God, but in secret. Live in God by your integrity, goodness, sincerity – let God live through you, but let no one know of it who doesn’t need to know. Don’t call attention to the good you do. Don’t strive for praise, recognition, reward, acceptance by others. Let this be our life “in the desert” this Lent. (Rev. Malinski)

Lenten Regulations

Fridays of Lent are all days of Abstinence from meat for those 14 years and older.

Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross will be celebrated after all of the Friday morning Masses during Lent.

Parish Mission

Our Parish’s Lenten Parish Mission begins next weekend. It will be led this year by Father Pat Martin.

ABCD Update

Thank you to those who have contributed to the 2015 Charities Drive. So far we have collected $32,000 in cash and pledges toward our parish goal of $88,000.

Your generous pledge and gift directly impacts the lives of people throughout South Florida with programs and ministries vital to the needs of the poor, needy and underprivileged.

Please return your pledge envelopes in the offertory at Mass or to the Parish Office during the week. Thank you.

Why should you use parish envelopes?

February 26, 2015

Returning to God a portion of our blessings is not charity but a religious obligation. Giving back to God is a necessary form of gratitude.

Supporting your parish shows you are aware of your responsibility to help the Lord in the work of the Gospel. The use of envelopes reminds you to do this weekly or monthly.

Using envelopes also provides a record of church attendance. Such a record is necessary for those who wish a pastoral permission to be a sponsor of a child or adult for baptism and confirmation. Most archdiocesan Catholic high schools will reduce tuition costs for parents who support their local parish church. Using envelopes is the way of demonstrating to these schools that parents are supporting their parish.

There are other simple ways of supporting your parish financially as well. Some members have their banks do a weekly or monthly check to the parish out of their account. Others write a monthly or yearly check. A further benefit of having a record of your sacrificial giving is that you can use that amount as a deduction from your yearly federal taxes.

Most importantly, as a spiritual writer once said, "The Catholic's need to give is far greater than God's need to receive. It is the sign of a grateful heart that knows all blessings ultimately come from the hand of God."

But God cannot be outdone in generosity. His reward for your sacrificial giving is, as Jesus says, more blessings, a hundred times over.
