What's happening...

Have you been thinking about how you can honor or memorialize a loved one?

We have an idea for you to consider.  How about having a brick inscribed with a special message and added to our Outdoor Stations of the Cross Pathway? This will be lasting tribute for generations.

The donation for a 4x8 brick with engraving is $125 (minimum donation). Each brick contains up to 3 lines with 18 characters including spaces and punctuations in each line.  The bricks are placed in the pathway randomly, and are a . 

Click here or on the brick image above for a printable form that you can complete and submit to the Parish Office.

 

The 10th National Eucharistic Congress is set to occur July 17-21 at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The four routes of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will converge at their final destination after completing a two-month journey tracing the sign of the cross over the United Sates. 

We ask for special prayers for the pilgrims and bishops from Florida who will be attending the Congress this week. For those who are unable to join in person, there is a live stream of the main events taking place in Lucas Oil Stadium. This includes Mass each day, the Encounter Impact Session, and each day’s Revival Session. Simply visit the Eucharistic Congress website to view the schedule and join in prayer or live stream events. 

In addition, EWTN will be offering television and live stream coverage, and Relevant Radio will be broadcasting live from the Congress. You can also follow along on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

Vote No on Amendment 3: Recreational Use of Marijuana

The bishops have released a statement encouraging Floridians to vote "no" on Amendment 3, to prevent increased addiction to marijuana and adverse health outcomes for our communities. 

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people who use marijuana have almost a 10% likelihood of becoming addicted, with that risk increasing in people who use marijuana frequently or start using it during youth or adolescence. Additional research links the use of marijuana by young adults to psychiatric disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Women who use marijuana while pregnant increase the risk of stillbirth, premature birth, low birth weight and impaired development of the baby's brain. 

The bishop's full statement is available online in English and Spanish

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In Scripture it is written, “. . . faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead” (Jm 2:17). Living according to our Catholic faith means doing the good works of Christ here on Earth, glorifying God by serving others.

The Diocese’s annual Catholic Faith Appeal is a call to action, and an opportunity to participate in a meaningful way in the works of charity that enliven our faith. Among the many programs sustained by the Catholic Faith Appeal are evangelization efforts, religious education, formation of future priests, and aid for religious sisters who serve those in need. It also funds housing for the homeless, seniors, and mothers and their children who often have nowhere else to go. In short, it is the lifeblood of the Diocese of Venice.Perhaps you watched a brief video about the Catholic Faith Appeal in your Parish earlier this month. If not, I invite you to watch the video, provided below, to see all that the Catholic Faith Appeal allows us to do, together, each year.

Your generous contribution to this year’s Catholic Faith Appeal will help to keep our faith very much alive here in Southwest Florida!

May the Lord bless you and your family abundantly for your desire to help those among us in need, and I wish you a Blessed Lenten Season.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
+ Frank J. Dewane
Bishop of the Diocese of Venice in Florida

Mis Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo,

En las Escrituras está escrito: "... la fe por sí misma, si no tiene obras, está muerta" (Jm 2, 17). Vivir de acuerdo con nuestra fe católica significa hacer las buenas obras de Cristo aquí en la Tierra, glorificando a Dios sirviendo a los demás.

La Campaña Anual de Fe Católica de la Diócesis es un llamado a la acción y una oportunidad para participar de manera significativa en las obras de caridad que avivan nuestra fe. Entre los muchos programas sostenidos por la Campaña de Fe Católica se encuentran los esfuerzos de evangelización, la educación religiosa, la formación de futuros sacerdotes y la ayuda a las hermanas religiosas que sirven a los necesitados. También financia viviendas para personas sin hogar, personas mayores y madres y sus hijos que a menudo no tienen otro lugar a donde ir. En resumen, es el alma de la Diócesis de Venice.Tal vez vio un breve video sobre la Campaña de Fe Católica en su Parroquia a principios de este mes. Si no es así, te invito a ver el video, que se proporciona a continuación, para ver todo lo que la Campaña de Fe Católica nos permite hacer, juntos, cada año. 

¡Su generosa contribución a la Campaña de Fe Católica de este año ayudará a mantener viva nuestra fe aquí en el suroeste de Florida!

Que el Señor los bendiga abundantemente a ustedes y a su familia por su deseo de ayudar a los necesitados, y les deseo una bendita temporada de Cuaresma.

Sinceramente suyo en Cristo,
+ Frank J. Dewane
Obispo de la Diócesis de Venice en Florida
