Second Sunday of Advent

Tuesday, November 22, 2022

The Second Week of Advent is the week of Peace. Jesus came to be the Prince of Peace.

The word peace is the Hebrew word shalom which means completeness or well being. Jesus did not come just to end wars, but to make us complete by saving us from our sinfulness.

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of the United States of America

Friday, December 2, 2022

December 8th, 2022

No sin would touch her, so that she would be afitting and worthy vessel of the Son of God. The Immaculate Conception does not refer to the virginal conception and the birth of Christ, but rather to Mary's being conceived without inheriting Original Sin."

Let us meditate on Mary's famous words to the angel Gabriel: "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." (Luke 2:38)

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is celebrated every year on December 8th. It is designated a holy day of obligation when all Roman Catholics are required to attend Mass.

Immaculate Conception and church history

Immaculate Conception -- or the idea that Mary was born without original sin -- dates back to the early church. It was Pius IX who finally declared that the Immaculate Conception was Catholic dogma and was to be firmly believed in as such.

“Hail Mary full of Grace”

This is a Holy Day of Obligation: Mass Schedule:

Vigil Mass December 7th

  • 7:30 pm English.

Thursday, December 8th

  • 7:00 am in English.
  • 8:30 am in English.

Homeless Ministry News

Friday, December 2, 2022

All you beautiful people have again shown your overwhelming generosity in the donations that were dropped off last Saturday November 19, 2022. Thanks to you, we were able to deliver 386 uncooked turkey meals to the Sisters of Charity. Needless to say, they were overjoyed.

The ministry also provided 300 individual cooked turkey meals to the Miami Rescue Mission which were given to the homeless on the streets. Through your generosity, we were able to purchase food items for 100 people to donate to the Miami Get Well Rehab Center for their Thanksgiving Dinner. Thanks to your food donations, we were also able to provide complete uncooked meals to 6 one parent poor families in the Homestead and Kendall area.

We also took a number of bags of clothes and cases of water to the Miami Rescue Mission. Your extreme generosity is heartwarming and most gratefully appreciated. You are truly doing God's work in feeding the homeless.

For Christmas the Ministry is providing 300 barbecue dinners for the homeless to the Miami Rescue Mission on December 17th. This has been a tradition for the last several years.

Please NO sandwiches or pasta trays on December 17th.

To help the Sisters of Charity, we are asking for complete ham dinner which consists of the following:

  • 1 – 5 -8 lb. ham (unfrozen).
  • 1 - 4 lb. bag of sugar.
  • 1 – small package of coffee.
  • 2 – 14 oz cans of vegetables (corn or green beans).
  • 1 – 2 lb. bag of rice.
  • 1 - 2 cans of black beans (or small bag).

Drop off: Front of Resurrection Hall between 11:00 am – 12:15 pm on Saturday, December 17th.

For a complete dinner we are willing to provide a community hours certificate for 8 HOURS, FOR STUDENTS OF ALL SCHOOLS, no matter how many meals are provided.

This will be the LAST food collection until January 21st, 2023.

In January we will resume our donation and volunteer activities to what they were pre-COVID. That is, we will be collecting food donations at SJN, and then taking them with volunteers to the Miami Rescue Mission (MRM) and serving the homeless in the MRM cafeteria as well as evangelizing in the chapel.

This was our previous practice. More information will be coming soon as well as asking for volunteer signup to return to the Mission.

Do you need to lay down your sword?

Friday, December 2, 2022

Is there someone in your life that you are fighting with right now? Do you have something that you are holding over them in your heart?

Confess it to God and ask for the grace to make peace with them.

When people come to God, He brings peace. Isaiah 2:2-4

How Can We Pray for You Today?

Tuesday, November 22, 2022

Two opportunities to request prayer!

Bring your prayers of concern or thanksgiving to our new Prayer Wall in the Loggia or request prayer online; visit our Prayer Request page.

Believe in the power of prayer "in all circumstances". All prayers are handled discretely and kept private. Prayers left at the Prayer Wall are taken to the altar prior to the Mass and online prayers and prayed over by priests, deacons and staff during the week.

Como Podemos Rezae por Usted Hoy?

Los invitamos a todos a que visiten la Pared de Oraciones en la entrada de la Iglesia y nos permitan unirnos en oración por ustedes y sus seres queridos. De acuerdo a nuestra fe y las enseñanzas de Cristo, nosotros creemos firmemente en una vida centrada en la oración.

Las oraciones que dejan en la Pared de Oraciones se traerán al altar con las ofrendas durante nuestra misa comunal. En la mesa colocada debajo de los sobres encontrarán tarjetas listas para recibir sus peticiones.
