Our Catholic Appeal:   Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord! 
We are called to follow God’s Word. The law of the land. We strive to do just that through our ministries, but we are only the starting point. Being Catholic means being part of a community which flourishes God’s commandments within our neighborhoods. The ministries supported by Our Catholic Appeal extend our work beyond our parish boundaries so that we might prosper God’s law throughout Central Florida and beyond. 
You can visit www.cfocf.or/oca to learn more about the life changing impact of your gifts. 
If you have already received a pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back or bring it to Mass with you next weekend. 
Our parish goal is $121,656. Once we achieve this goal, the majority of the additional funds will be returned to our parish to support our own special needs. 
Thank you for your generosity!

RCIA  Rite of Acceptance on February 26th and Rite of Sending on March 5th during the 10:00 Mass.  Several members of our group of inquirers in the RCIA process will be moving into the second stage through the Rite of Acceptance on February 26th. The first phase of the journey of ini1a1on has been a time to hear the mystery of Christ proclaimed. The inquirers have consciously and freely sought to enter the way of faith and conversion as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts. We ask you to please pray for the inquirers as they continue their conversion journey and for our RCIA process as we assist them in moving toward a closer relationship with God. After the Rite of Acceptance the inquirers will become catechumens and they will be dismissed during Mass after the homily to discuss the Mass readings for that Sunday and to experience more fully the impact of the Scriptures in their lives. We hope and pray they will continue on the journey and receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Communion and Confirmation) at the Easter Vigil in 2018.  Rite of Sending will take place on March 5th during the 10:00 Mass. Across the entire world, Catholic bishops on the first Sunday of Lent will welcome those sent by the parish to gather together with their godparents in what is known as the Rite of Election. The Rite of Sending offers us an opportunity to acknowledge the spiritual progress the catechumens have made, express approval of their election and send them forth to Bishop Noonan with assurance of our care and support. In the Rite of Sending the catechumens will sign their names in the Book of the Elect. The Rite of Election will take place at Mary Queen of the Universe Shrine at 3:00. This Rite marks a key moment. It signifies they have been called by Christ. From this point forward, they are no longer catechumens but are called the “elect.” They have been chosen to enter the final period of prepara1on for initiation, to the holy mysteries to be celebrated this Easter Vigil on April 15th.  Please keep our catechumens, Tariq Holt, Kiara Solano and Eliezer (EJ) Vazquez in your prayers.  For more information please contact Dolly at the office or by email: ollfaithform@ourladyofthelakes.org. 

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION:   Listen to what the Pope John Paul II said: "The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship”. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration. Notice how the Holy Father is asking you to be generous with your time. He is not asking for your money but something much more precious – your time. We invite you to come spend time with Jesus. Adorers are Needed. Please contact Stasia for scheduling 386-574-2131.

Bible Study: Thursdays starting January 19th at 7:00pm in the social hall.  Price: $20.00:   Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance - Paul’s letter to the Ephesians reveals many remarkable gifts that we as Christians are given in the Church. This letter tells us about the nature of the Church – as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. It shows us the great inheritance that awaits us as sons and daughters, adopted fully into the family of God. It reveals how God’s great love for us can transform our daily lives if we allow it.  Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance is an 8-part Bible study that will enrich your faith, and show you how to live it out.  In this study, you will: • Discover what it means to be not just a son or daughter of God, but an heir to all he has to give. • Learn about the great mystery of how we can love one another as Christ loves the Church.  Find out that you have a place in God’s “plan of sheer goodness."

CHRIST RENEWS HIS PARISH  RETREAT WEEKEND 
Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is designed to promote spiritual growth and community interaction as Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Learning how to be a faithful follower of Christ ought to be one of our greatest desires. Too many distractions tend to distance us from God and His love. The truly Good News is that God is alive and He loves us more deeply than we could ever comprehend.  Our retreats are just one way we can pause our busy lives, so that we can get to know God better. We join our Lord in inviting you. “Come and you will see” John 1:39

A Journey of Faith on the Camino De Santiago 2016

Our Lady's Peace Plan is founded on three simple, but powerful requests. The first is a request for prayer, most particularly the Holy Rosary and the devotion of the Brown Scapular. The second calls for us to make reparation for the sins and outrages perpetrated against God's Grace and blasphemies against the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The third request is for consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, both on a personal basis and, publicly.

33 Days- Total Consecration to JESUS through Mary  - For further information kindly contact Stasia Wilczak 407-416-4791 or email stasiawilczak@wp.pl
