Our Catholic Appeal:   Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord! 
We are called to follow God’s Word. The law of the land. We strive to do just that through our ministries, but we are only the starting point. Being Catholic means being part of a community which flourishes God’s commandments within our neighborhoods. The ministries supported by Our Catholic Appeal extend our work beyond our parish boundaries so that we might prosper God’s law throughout Central Florida and beyond. 
You can visit www.cfocf.or/oca to learn more about the life changing impact of your gifts. 
If you have already received a pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back or bring it to Mass with you next weekend. 
Our parish goal is $121,656. Once we achieve this goal, the majority of the additional funds will be returned to our parish to support our own special needs. 
Thank you for your generosity!

RCIA:  Lent is a time of purification and enlightenment for all of us, especially our elect. The elect are those who are in the final stages of preparation to receive the Sacraments of Initiation this Easter. Our elect are Tariq Holt, Kiara Solano and Eliezer (EJ) Vazquez. On the third, fourth and fifth Sundays of Lent during the 10:00 Mass the Scrutinies are celebrated for the elect. During the second Scrutiny, which takes place on March 26th,  we all join with the man born blind and beg to see Jesus, who is the light and gives us sight. Next week, we lie with Lazarus within the tomb of oblivion and death, built with the stones of our own sins, until Jesus reaches out His hand and pulls us up from the pit.  Please keep our elect in your prayers.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION:   Listen to what the Pope John Paul II said: "The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship”. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration. Notice how the Holy Father is asking you to be generous with your time. He is not asking for your money but something much more precious – your time. We invite you to come spend time with Jesus. Adorers are Needed. Please contact Stasia for scheduling 386-574-2131.

CHRIST RENEWS HIS PARISH  RETREAT WEEKEND 
Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is designed to promote spiritual growth and community interaction as Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Learning how to be a faithful follower of Christ ought to be one of our greatest desires. Too many distractions tend to distance us from God and His love.

We join our Lord in inviting you. “Come and you will see” John 1:39

Our Lady's Peace Plan is founded on three simple, but powerful requests. The first is a request for prayer, most particularly the Holy Rosary and the devotion of the Brown Scapular. The second calls for us to make reparation for the sins and outrages perpetrated against God's Grace and blasphemies against the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The third request is for consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, both on a personal basis and, publicly.
