A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are all close to my heart!
Lots of love, blessings, and prayers to you all.

Welcoming Our Seasonal Parishioners

The busiest season in the parish is approaching. The winter parishioners will be coming back to the parish. We will welcome them and will be glad to see all of them back in the parish and in their Florida homes.


Above all, Thanksgiving is also coming soon! We will again this year hold Thanksgiving for everyone, especially for those who are homebound, sick, or elderly. There will be announcements from the pulpit, please sign-up at the back of the church. We need to know the count in order to prepare properly.


I am also planning for the Christmas Season. We will start the Christmas novena on Friday, December 16th after evening Mass. It will continue until Friday, December 23rd evening. In preparation for Christmas.

Parish Retreat

Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center in West Palm Beach FL

December 16th

Additionally, we will take one day of reflection and retreat at Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center in West Palm Beach FL. This was the place where I have my retreat every year. It’s a beautiful place. I believe you would like it too. The sign-up sheets are also available in the back of the church and there will be a pulpit announcement too. Please sign-up. We need the count. I made these arrangements only for our parish. It’s the best way to prepare for Christmas. We will arrange a bus for those who do not want to drive and want to ride together. Others, of course, can meet us up there in their own cars. We need the count.

It will be December 16th with more details to follow in the coming weeks. There will be a chance to make your confessions as well. For Christmas, I am looking for children, who would like to do the Motion Gloria for all the Masses. I understand that everyone that has seen it loves it. Please let the office know about your granddaughters who would like to participate in this. There will be practice every Saturday morning in December at 10:00 a.m. Please let me or the office know about it.
