May 2016 Online 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 500 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.
May 2016 ABCD - Donors Welcome
Thank you to all who have already generously responded to this year’s ABCD. Your support strengthens the ministries that serve our Archdiocese and allow the Church to form new disciples. As Scriptures remind us, Give and it shall be given to you. Your neighbor needs you. You are the answer to someone’s prayers, and together, we are changing lives.
If you have yet to respond to this year’s ABCD, please take a moment to reflect upon the many blessings the Lord has given you and how He is calling you to respond this incredibly important annual campaign. To make a gift, you can obtain a pledge envelope from the parish office and simply return it to the parish office or Sunday collection basket. Let us all unite through our support of this year’s ABCD so that we can be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity. Thank you
