Introduction to Catholic Social Teaching

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English

“Catholic social teaching is a central and essential element of our faith... [It] emerges from the truth of what God has revealed to us about himself. We believe in the triune God whose very nature is communal and social... We who are made in God's image share this communal, social nature. We are called to reach out and to build relationships of love and justice.” (USCCB)

This course will introduce the catechist to the Church’s rich tradition of writings dedicated to the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching.

Who can register? Parish catechists, Catholic schools' teachers, private schools' catechists or teachers who are seeking to obtain renewal of their catechist certification.

The Community of St. John Paul II

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM - English

The Community of St. John Paul II invites you to our new prayer and study group inspired by the life, spirituality and writings of St. John Paul II.

Our Mission: To deepen our Catholic faith, to respect and defend the sacredness of life, to live the fullness of the Gospel message, to promote the new evangelization and grow in greater love of God and neighbor as taught and exemplified by Pope St. John Paul II.

As St. John Paul II repeatedly said, "Be not afraid! Open wide the doors to Christ", we seek to open the doors to Christ of the new evangelization in all the dimensions of human life: family, marriage, work, social, cultural, artistic, intellectual, historical... all in and for Christ.

Please join us every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month, at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, at 8 p.m.

Additional projects: Rosary for Life: "Life is a gift, not a choice!"

We are exited to explore and study the rich intellectual and spiritual legacy of St. John Paul II and the Catholic Church.  Many of the writings we are aiming to prayerfully study and live include: 

Redemptor hominis, Laborem exercens, Redemptoris mater, Veritatis spendor Evangelium vitae, Fide et ratio, Ecclesia de Euchristia, Familiaris Consortio, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, Dies domini, and the many letters of St. John Paul II to women, artists, children, families, scientists, and others. 

We will also examine and study many key Church documents such as:

Humanae Vitae, Gaudium et Spes, Dominus Iesus, Rerum Novarum, Providentissimus Deus, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, Pacem in Terris, Casti Connubii, Aeterni Patris, and others.

 We wish to realize the Holy Father's words:

“Make time for study, meditation, and reflection. Use your intelligence well; make an effort to reach correct convictions; do not waste time; deepen the motives and foundations of faith in Christ and in the Church, so as to be firm now and in your future.  —John Paul II, from Go in Peace

Please join us for a rich intellectual and spiritual journey guided by Pope St. John Paul II, the Great!

Grief support group at St. Patrick

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

St. Patrick has a faith-based grief-sharing group which meets once a week in the evening in the parish office building, from December through May.

The death or terminal illness of a family member can be emotionally and physically debilitating, causing confusion, many disparate emotions and behavioral and physical reactions. The mission of St. Patrick’s grief sharing group is to help participants accept the reality of their loss; assist them as they experience the physical and emotional pain of the grieving process; adjust to life without the deceased or the terminally ill loved one; and find an enduring connection with the deceased and about-to-be deceased so that the participants can move on with their life.

The group is conducted in an open, non-judgmental and caring atmosphere. If you or someone you know might be interested in joining the group, please contact Arthur Gowran at arthurgowran@yahoo.com for further details.

St. John Bosco Clinic is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine, Florida. Established in 1992, we aim to be an enduring presence providing care as long as there are underserved children and adults without access to healthcare. 

The strength of a free clinic lies in its volunteer support. Volunteers help strengthen the safety-net that cares for our community. Those served at St. John Bosco Clinic have different life stories, faces and nationalities. They are the young, old, working poor and the unemployed, but they share one very similar need: the need for healthcare and difficulty meeting that need for themselves and their families. The St. John Bosco Clinic is a safety-net for these families.
