HAVE YOU MADE YOUR PLEDGE YET?
- Active Parishioners: 1500.
- ABCD Donors: 301.
Our ABCD campaign is a responsibility we are called to fulfill for the benefit of the Church. These funds serve the poor, educate seminarians and lay ministers, and keep our church mission alive in so many other ways.
Please look at the graphic to the left: out of nearly 4,000 registered parishioners, we have 1,500 active parishioners. From this number, there are only 301 families who have contributed to this endeavor, so far. Pray about it, and if you have not yet contributed, please contact our church office to commit to our goal. Or simply, fill out a designated envelope from the entrance of the church, and place it in the collection box.
Thank you and God bless you.
Sincerely in Christ,
June 5 - June 19

God of power and mercy, You destroy war and put down earthly pride. Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called Your sons and daughters.
Keep in Your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into Your kingdom of justice and peace. We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord.

ARCHDIOCESE OF MIAMI OFFICE OF PLANNED GIVING
Did you know you can designate the parish as beneficiary on your stocks and bank accounts?
It’s called a “transfer on death” designation for stocks, and a “payable on death” designation for financial institution accounts. By naming our parish as beneficiary, you’ll provide lasting financial support and possibly qualify for tax benefits as well.
For more information, contact the Office of Planned Giving at (305) 762-1110.
