    "ABCD: Your Support, Our Goal: Let's Reach Higher Together"

    Our commitment to the 2024 ABCD as a parish is a testimony to our collective faith and the love we have for those in need. Though we've made significant progress, we've yet to meet our goal. Every contribution counts, and with your support, we can make a real difference. Please take a moment to consider making a gift to the ABCD today-helping us achieve our goal and offering love and compassion to those who need it most.

    Let us unite to be One in Faith, One in Hope, One in Charity.

    We need you!

    Your generous support of the ABCD makes you an instrument of God’s mercy and peace, and you become the answer to someone’s prayer. Through the ABCD, as one faith community, we feed the hungry, cloth the poor, and care for the sick and dying. As one Church, we nourish and educate our children, assist our poor, and care for the sick and dying. As one Church, we nourish and educate our children, assist our poor parishes and schools, and shelter the homeless. As Catholics, we defend and respect the dignity of sall human life and work to eliminate prejudice, and promote justice. YOU make all this possible. Thank you to all who have already decided to generously respond to this year's ABCD.

    As Scriptures remind us, Give and it shall be given to you. Please join us by making a gift now-even a small gift can make a big difference.

    Thank you and God Bless you!

    Archdiocesan News

    It deeply warms my heart that, despite extraordinary challenges over the last several years, so many have come together in unity with the Holy Spirit, consistently responding with generosity and kindness toward those in need. While the difficulties that our communities confront today are great, the selflessness and love within our spiritual family have proven to be far greater. Make your donation today! www.isupportabcd.org.

    Planned Giving

    Planned giving is a thoughtful way for donors to extend their gift beyond their lifetime to support the Archdiocese of Miami and to ensure that our Church and ministries remain vibrant and filled with hope for future generations. Visit www.adomgift.org for more information today.

    Stewardship

    It's difficult to teach or practice stewardship, unless we have a clear understanding of exactly what stewardship is. If we wish to embrace stewardship, we must gradually learn to embrace every definition or aspect of stewardship.

    “You shall not carve idols for yourselves in the shape of anything…” - Exodus 20:4.

    How many “gods” do you put before God? “Idols” do not always take the shape of physical things, things we can touch and feel. Those are easy to recognize. Many times, they take the form of things we cannot touch and are much harder to spot like pride, power, ego, time, comfort, or health. Pray for God’s help to prune our vices and to grow in virtue.
