Please join our new Ministry DIVINE MERCY NOVENA CIRCLE.  We want to answer the JESUS call and help others in needs. Unlike other novenas, where people ask for something from God through the intercession of His Holy Saints, Divine Mercy Novena is intended to be prayed for graces and/or salvation to be given to other people. Jesus asked that this novena be prayed prior to the Feast of Divine Mercy Sunday, beginning on Good Friday.  It can be prayed at all times. In her Diary Faustina wrote that Jesus told her: "On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy ... On each day you will beg My Father ,for the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls." Commitment- prayer about 15 minutes per day for peoples & own intentions. -9 People in one Circle. Each one prayer consists of one Divine Mercy Chaplet & 1 Day prayer of Divine Mercy Novena. -Can be prayed at any time of the day and at anywhere you are. Animator-Stasia Wilczak 386-574-2131 or cell 407-416-4791-info. stasiawilczak@wp.pl and www.ourladyofthelakes.org It is ideal to accompany this novena daily with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and prayed on the beads of a regular Rosary. Gather your intentions and unite them with the intentions of Jesus, and offer them up to His merciful heart!

CCW Schedule in the Social Hall: May 21 Board Meeting at 10:30 AM; Fridays Crafts from 10 AM - 12 PM.  Open to all women of the parish.

Autism Awareness: Today in the United States, the rate of disability is estimated at 20% of the population.  Chances are that you or someone you know has a disability.  Sometimes we can see differences, a hearing aid or ASI, someone with a guide dog, or a person using a wheelchair.  But often, a disability is not seen; autism, depression, a learning difference.  We all struggle with life.  But we can ALL love.  We ALL have gifts and can share these gifts to serve God.  Our parish is alive when we ALL celebrate together!
