This Week

Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time : September 23, 2018

The Little Flower branch of Saint Paul Street Evangelization is a local way for Catholics to engage the culture in which we live through a simple, non-confrontational, method of evangelization, which involves making oneself available to the public to answer questions about the faith and to pray with those who request it.

Armed with a simple sign (such as: Catholic Truth. Got questions? Free Literature. Need Prayer?), pamphlets, and Rosaries, Saint Paul Street Evangelization takes to the streets, going wherever people are gathered—on a street corner, at a carnival, a park, or even a football game. It is about making a peaceful presence, allowing people to approach if they choose. Initial contact is limited to a kindly greeting and free Rosary, but the evangelist never tries to force anyone to stop and talk. A creative ministry that has born much fruit.

For more information, come to a meeting with Father Davis on Thursday, September 27th, at 7:30pm in the 2nd floor conference room at the parish office.

Starting in October, the window change out project at Saint Theresa School will finally get underway. Delayed by five months due to the permitting process with the City, the windows are currently being fabricated and installation will begin soon. Following the installation, the school will be beautified and painted.

Thanks to all who have participated in the many fundraising and development initiatives that have been done at the school over the past couple of years. The windows and painting projects, both long overdue, are completely now paid for. Thanks for helping us take care of the patrimony of our beautiful parish school, and for helping us advance the cause at the Church of the Little Flower.

Though we host specially scheduled Holy Hours throughout the year, as we did last Friday, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for adoration and prayer, every morning, Monday thru Friday, from 9:00am to 12:00pm, in the Parish Office Chapel.

All are welcome to pray before the Real Presence!

With the recent departure of our regular ESL teacher, the English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) Ministry is now seeking a volunteer teacher in order for the group to continue meeting.

ESL classes were previously held on Thursday mornings, but the group may have flexibility to meet on other days or times, depending on volunteer availability. If you are interested in helping a small group of parishioners learn English, please contact the parish office.

The Music Ministry of the Church of the Little Flower is looking for new members and will be holding informal try-outs for both the Children’s Choir and the Schola Cantorum.

If God gave you, or someone you know, the gift of voice, there is no better way to thank Him than using it in His service!

Please contact the director of the Schola Cantorum, Dawn Fontana at music@stscg.org to schedule a time.

We have good news and we have bad news to report to you regarding our circular driveway project. The good news is that we are now within $2,780 of our fundraising goal for the proposed circular side-entrance driveway. Thanks to all who have contributed so far! $47,220 have been collected so far.

The bad news is that we are in a delayed-action-plan. We are currently awaiting the results of an appeal to the Historical Board at the City of Coral Gables. Presently, the board is not willing to accept our initial proposal. We are currently submitting an alternative plan. We may be soon mobilizing for the request of a variance. We will keep you up to date.

Eighteen months from now, March 6 to the 15, 2020, Father Davis will be leading yet another trip to the land made holy by the footsteps of Jesus, the Holy Land of Israel. Good things, like the trip of a lifetime, are worth planning for! In 2020, Easter will be in late April, and so the 10-day pilgrimage will take place the Friday after Ash Wednesday.

Organized by the nationally renowned Catholic Travel Centre in Burbank, California, the trip will make stops at many places of biblical fame, and will be the best investment you could ever make in your Catholic life of faith. Nazareth, Bethlehem, Cana, Galilee, the Mount of Beatitudes, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Via Dolorosa, and the Jordan River are among the highlights. Brochures will be available after May 15, 2019.
