THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS! Congratulations to our Confirmation Candidates for attending the Confirmation Retreat! May the joy of the Holy Spirit remain in your hearts and bear fruit as you continue to prepare for the final Sacrament of Initiation. Thank you to all who made the retreat a success! We greatly enjoyed the taco salad made by Rich and all of the food prepared by Mike and his team. It was delicious! Thank you: Deacon Hector, Audrey, Ben, Tim, Dom, and Allen for your teaching, witness, challenges, inspiration and your example. We thank Jeff for leading us in song throughout the retreat and helping us to lift our hearts in praise to our Lord during the closing ceremony. We thank Deacon Luis for his assistance and prayers and Deacon Hector for giving us the great gift of being in our Lord’s presence and having Him come to us in the procession of the Blessed Sacrament. We are blessed! We are grateful to our chaperones and all who worked behind the scenes and for those who helped blowing up the balloons and filling the balloons with water - shhh don’t tell next year’s candidates it’s a surprise. Thank you: Janet, Sari, Javier, Carlos, Dom, Audrey, and Jillian. We wouldn’t have had so much fun without your help. We thank all of the parents, sponsors, and family members who joined us for the closing ceremony. Your presence was greatly appreciated. We also thank all of you who prayed for the candidates and we ask you to continue praying that all of the candidates will have an open heart to allow the Holy Spirit to transform their lives and they will know the love of God.

Ministry of Hospitality: Greeters & Ushers; serve as humble hostesses and hosts to warmly welcome the people of God to each liturgical celebration.  The first task of the parish community is to reach out to all people in Christian love and service.  Christian hospitality draws people together, opens them to participation, and sets the tone for the liturgy.

Every Christian is called to ministry and gifted by the Holy Spirit.  This calling is rooted in our baptism.  By means of our initiation into the Church and strengthened by grace, God empowers each person with the resources for ministry.  The minister of hospitality is equipped for this ministry by the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  These gifts make that ministry effective and enable the minister to build up the Body of Christ.  In their welcome and Christ-like attitude, ministers of hospitality ensure that the faithful see and experience the love of Christ.

The ministry of hospitality is crucial because it is so visible in the Church.  Certainly the attitude, conduct and even the appearance of the minister of hospitality directly affects, either positively or negatively, the experience of the faithful at Mass. 

Conscious of this vital ministry and its significance for the faithful, our community has created a co-ministry of greeters to help create a sense of warm welcome and hosiitality.

If you are interested and want to know more about this ministry, please contact Bill Feuerbacher, Head Usher at 407-416-8441.

Respect Life MIA Baby Bottles. Please help turn in our missing in action Baby Bottles from last year’s baby bottle campaign. We still have 34 bottles out and we have a deadline of October 15th to turn them in. If you have a baby bottle you are still filling or even if it is empty, please give to the office or an usher so we can account for all of them and return to the Pregnancy Center before our next campaign in December. Thank you again for your support for Life. Spiritual Adoption Campaign. Thanks to all who participated in spiritually adopting your unborn baby and praying for them. Please continue to pray for this child who you may never meet in this life, but will know in the next life. The banner for this month was inadvertently put up this past month so it will hang for two months. Sorry for the confusion.

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!
