Give Light, Give Love, Give Life

ABCD reminds us that the work of the Church is shared by all. By supporting the works of our Archdiocese and the mission of the Church here in South Florida, you will answer God’s call to love and to serve those in need: those who are without shelter or food, those who are sick or dying, women in crisis, immigrants, children and young adults. Your gift is also an investment in the future by supporting the training of our future priests and deacons. In a word, your gift transforms lives, displays compassion and serves as a living testimony of your faith.

Jesus calls us to be instruments of hope and through the ABCD, to Give Light, Give Love and Give Life. The ABCD gives light by introducing others to Jesus as missionaries of hope. ABCD gives love by action, a deed by giving away of oneself as Jesus gave himself away. ABCD gives life through Catholic education, engaging our youth and young adults and defending the dignity of all human life.

Next week, every parish in the Archdiocese will unite to ask our Catholic community to support this year’s ABCD by making a gift. I ask that you prayerfully consider making a gift, whether by responding to the Archbishop’s letter, making a gift online atwww.isupportabcd.org or turning in your pledge envelope at the Church.

Our next outings will be on Saturday, January 20 and Sunday, January 21.

We are in need of volunteers and hot food for both Saturday AND Sunday. This means rice or pasta dishes with chicken or beef, ex. spaghetti with meat, arroz con pollo and other casserole dishes with meat. Meatballs from the frozen food section are easy to cook and can be added to other dishes. Please bring these in a disposable aluminum pan.

Hamburger soup, snacks, hard boiled eggs (cooked for at least 10 minutes), canned sodas, cases of individual water bottles, and individually wrapped sandwiches, i.e. ham & cheese, turkey & cheese, or PB & J sandwiches are always welcomed.

Please bring your food donations between 2:00 and 3:00pm to the church pavilion which is located between the school and Resurrection Hall.

The group departs for the Miami Rescue Mission at 3:30pm. Come and share in this wonderful experience.

Children must be at least 12 years of age and must be accompanied by a parent. God bless you.

Dear Lord,

It is You who calls us to stewardship in our lives. It is You who sowed the seeds of talent in us and have helped us to harvest a multitude of blessings in this world.

Help me to be the faithful steward, to share abundantly from my storehouse of blessings to glorify Your Name.

Help me to place my trust firmly in You, secure in Your promise to multiply Your goodness to those who seek You and Your kingdom.

All that I have is Yours, Bless me with a spirit of generosity. Make me a gift to others in Your Name. Amen.

Please note that the doors open at 6:00pm and he begins promptly at 7:00pm Thanks to all who will be participating and we pray that this will be a life changing event for our parish family.

As the Social Media Team, we wanted to be able to give our community a gift that motivates each one of us to do more for our Parish...So we asked people from both the English and Spanish communities to be part of this project because for us, even if we go to a different language mass, we are just one body called to be His disciples.

So rejoicing in happiness, here is the final product: a bilingual song that reflects what all are called to do for Him.

Thank you Andrea Bejarano, Kaylin Bosque, Emilio Saravia, Eddie Blandino, and Tom Mazzeo for saying YES to God. Sharing with you the lyrics of the song that will represent our 2018 Ministry Fair!

“Be His Disciple – SJN Social Media Team

You gave me the best of you Even when I couldn’t find my way Taught me how to love, everyday a little more Now, Ill spread your perfect word Ill spread your perfect word

Even when the world pulls me away I refuse to lose my faith They may doubt your grace, even blame you for the pain But, I won’t stop praising your name

Be his disciple, give to those in need Be his example, and give a helping hand Be a shining light for those who don’t know his name

I want to be a reflection of your face Spreading your message You’ve never failed me, Lord Chorus.
