February 2015 ABCD
For centuries, the Catholic Church has performed more works of charity than any other organization in the world. Why? Because God is love, and through that powerful statement, He teaches us that it is in giving that we receive. His message is simple—to love God above all else and to love others. It is through His love that I seek your help. You are the answer to someone’s prayers, and together, we are changing lives.
United, as one family of God, we feed the hungry, cloth the poor, care for the sick and dying, and touch the hearts of those in despair. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we nourish and educate our children, both spiritually and intellectually. We assist the poorest of our parishes and schools so that all persons may encounter Jesus Christ. We provide shelter for the homeless. As Catholics, we consistently defend and respect the dignity of all human life, work to eliminate prejudice, and promote social justice. We journey together by sharing in the sacraments—from baptism to receiving the Eucharist, to confirmation and penance, to marriage and anointing the sick. And this year, we are blessed with sixty-five men studying in our seminaries answering their call to the priesthood to become shepherds of Christ here in south Florida. You make all this possible.
Let us unite through our support of this year’s ABCD so that I… you… and we can continue to carry out the good works of Jesus Christ here in South Florida.

February 2015 Anniversary Year: A Shrine To St. Therese
The New Year 2015 brings many causes to rejoice. In August of 2015, St. Theresa Catholic School will open its doors for the 90th time. Shortly after, the Church of the Little Flower parish will begin its 90th jubilee year, culminating in the 90th anniversary of the dedication of the original church on December 8, 2016.
As part of the anniversary initiatives, the parish will be building a grotto in honor of Saint Therese of Lissieux, France, commonly known as the Little Flower, after whom our parish is named. The grotto, with a life-size statue of Saint Therese, as well as a memorial brick patio, will be a lovely outdoor oratory near the front doors of the parish office.
Ground-breaking will be in the spring of
2015. You will hear more about this project as we approach the spring months.
Meanwhile, bricks can be purchased, and memorializations and sponsorships are now available
through the Advancement Office. Contact Jorge Perez at
(305) 446-9950 for more information.
