October 2016 Deceptive Abortion Ad Campaign - What can you do about it?
Stand for Life!
On Sept. 12, an abortion advocacy organization called "Catholics for Choice" (CFC) placed deceptive full-page newspaper ads in multiple US cities, including the Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald, calling for taxpayer funding of abortion in the name of the Catholic faith. CFC is not a Catholic organization, has no membership, and does not speak for the Catholic Church.
Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski does!
Join him, and other faithful Catholics from across the Archdiocese in promoting authentic Catholic teaching on the dignity and life of the human person.
Help us purchase a full-page ad in the Herald with a message of hope and solidarity for pregnant women and their unborn children!
October is Respect Life Month.
DONATE NOW at Church of the Little Flower, Coral Gables, Click here and goto "Quick Give" link. Please specify your gift information as "Stand For Life Ad." Checks and cash are accepted at the parish office.
Let us stand in unity as Catholics for Life!
For more information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or Church of the Little Flower Parish Office: (305) 446-9950.

October 2016 Thanksgiving Day Baskets for Our Parish Homebound Parishioners
We could use donations of none perishable convenience food products, baskets, niceties, volunteers, and drivers, who are willing to be part of a team of parishioners who will deliver a “basket of love” to our homebound parishioners.
We ordinarily take Holy Communion to more than 40 people per week.
We thought it would be a nice gesture of love to share with them the blessing of Thanksgiving by gifting them with a nice holiday basket of goodies. They will be distributed on Thanksgiving morning, perhaps after the 10:30 am Mass.
If your charity moves you to help in this endeavor, a corporal
work of mercy, place contact Cecilia in our Ministries Office,
