A WEEKEND TO RECONNECT
Is your marriage going down the right road, or is it a little off track?
Life can be difficult, and so can the challenges you face in marriage.
Does the distance between you seem wide? Are you already separated? Looking for a better way?
Retrouvaille can help and offers hope for a better relationship. It is a peer ministry of volunteer couples that can help you learn the tools of healthy communication, build intimacy, and heal, just as they have done in their own marriages. It can help get your relationship back on track.
Retrouvaille is Christian-based and Catholic in origin, but it welcomes all faiths as well as non-religious husbands and wives.
The next local weekend is set for October 28 to 30 at Rodeway Inn, 2440 W. State Road 84 in Fort Lauderdale. For information, call the registration team at 800-470-2230, visit HelpOurMarriage.com, or email RetrouvailleSF@gmail.com.
World Mission Sunday is October 16.
This is a worldwide collection for the missionary church that provides emergency aid when disasters strike, cares for refugees in war-torn countries, and provides rural health clinics and transportation for priests, catechists, religious and lay pastoral workers. It provides financial support for the daily needs of all missionaries.
Please pray for the missions, and be generous on World Mission Sunday.
Choose one of the three topics below to write about. Essays will be judged by content (personal and/or informational) and not by length.
The deadline is October 23. Two $50 cash prizes will be two awards: one for those in grades K to 5 and one in grades 6 to 8.
This is just one way we wish to encourage students and their families to become familiar with our Church’s teaching on all life issues, from the unborn to the elderly to the death penalty.
If you or your child has any questions, please contact our Respect Life representative, Darlene, at 954-798-0751. Thanks for your participation.
All ladies of the Parish are invited to make this year’s retreat at Our Lady of Florida Retreat Center in West Palm Beach.
The theme is “Reflecting Christ.”
Because of Hurricane Matthew, the retreat has been postponed. Stay tuned for a new date.
If you have considered attending in the past, let this be your year.
Call Council President Cathie Desjean at 954-783-5122.
The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is the process by which non-Catholics gradually become members of the Roman Catholic Church. RCIA is primarily a journey of faith. It is a restoration of the ancient practice of initiation in the Church. It is not a program but a sacramental process by which candidates are fully initiated into the faith.
Sessions are held on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Please call Sister Anne at 954-684-8742.
Cradle Catholics who feel the need to update their understanding of the teachings of the Church are also most welcome.
