May 2015 Seeking volunteer youth group coordinator
With the evolving number of parish ministries and professional responsibilities of our staff, we are eager to welcome the participation of an expanding number of volunteers who are willing to engage in various kinds of ministry.
One such opportunity is that of Junior High Youth Group coordination. Although it could be done by one person, it could also (and perhaps preferably) be done by a team of youthful energetic young adults.

May 2015Ingrid Huerta: Rest in Peace
Our former Ministries Coordinator, Ingrid Huerta, (who worked with us for six months from July 2014 to December 2014) died on Friday following a grueling battle with an aggressive cancer. Her funeral services took place at nearby Saint Raymond Church last Saturday. She served here at Little Flower with devotion and love, and was one of the "key" personalities behind this past year's Ministries Fair last September and the Ministries Appreciation Evening last November, where she gave a very sincere and emotional speech about the meaning of ministry and the importance of being close to Christ on the journey of life.
Please remember Ingrid in your prayers, as well as pray for the consolation of her family and children. Ingrid, thank you for your love of our parish. May you enjoy the eternal peace and repose of the servants of God.
May 2015Online Giving
As summer quickly approaches, school lets out and our travels take us to points both near and far from home, Online Giving is an excellent option to make sure the church we love so much continues to receive our thoughtful stewardship even when our physical presence is not possible. Summer has always been a time for vacationing and spending quality time with family, let us not forget our Little Flower family. This service is free, safe and secure, and it is a perfect tool for anyone who will be going out of town and not able to be physically at Mass. If you had been thinking of signing up, now is an excellent time to give it a try!
We currently have over 320 families who already use online giving, simply go to www.cotlf.org click on the Online Giving tab and see how convenient it is. If you would like more information or to schedule an appointment to help set up your account, please contact Jorge Perez, at
(305)446-5950 ext. 318.
