Parish Office Hours:

On Monday, June 17th, COTLF's 9th Annual VBS will be off to a ROAR'n start! We are thrilled to welcome 125 young campers who will be assisted by 75 enthusiastic and faith-filled teen volunteers.

VBS is one of our largest, most active, dynamic, and successful youth ministry offerings in the parish and we're so excited to soon get underway.

Please pray for our VBS volunteers, campers, and families as they discover that although life can get pretty wild, God is Good!

Join us every Monday evening at 6:00pm at the St. Therese Prayer Grotto for the COTLF Summer Fun Runs!

A safe, simple-to-follow route will be provided.

All runners and walkers are invited. Children are welcome with adult supervision. Families with strollers, join in! No timing. No pressure. Just fun!

It was a majestic send-off for Father Davis last week, an amazing wine and food festival last Saturday night, a glorious Pentecost Sunday Mass, concelebrated by eight additional priests (including Father O'Sullivan), stately music with trumpet and timpani, tearful testimonials, and a beautiful reception in Comber Hall during which hundreds of parishioners thanked Father for his amazing eight years of service and love. This past Thursday, Father Davis moved to his new parish of Saint Gregory the Great in Plantation. He sends his greetings, gratitude and love to us as a new chapter in our spiritual lives begins under the leadership of Little Flower's new pastor: Father Manuel Alvarez.

Words of welcome are now in order for Father Alvarez, the 9th Pastor of the historical Church of the Little Flower in Coral Gables. He moved in this past Friday, with his first day on the job this past Saturday, June 15th. He takes the helm of a very vibrant and highly regarded Catholic community in the Archdiocese of Miami, bringing with him his energetic personality, a zeal for ministry, an excellent work ethic, and his abundant spiritual gifts. His excellent service as the former Pastor of Our Lady of Divine Providence Catholic Church in Sweetwater, and most recently as Pastor of Immaculate Conception Church in Hialeah, has set the stage for his service among us as our new Pastor. He follows in the path of our beloved Monsignor Morras, who likewise came to Little Flower directly from Immaculate Conception Church as well. Father Alvarez' curriculum vitae is newly posted on our parish website for our perusal.

Our community is now delighted to warmly welcome him with our prayers and best wishes for a fruitful ministry, as the newest member of our parish family. Father: may you be at home among us and be choicely blessed by the Lord.

Ad Multos Annos!
