Garage Sale This Weekend

Our annual Garage Sale continues after all of the Masses today – Sunday, November 29th!

Toy Drive for Migrant Families

New, unwrapped toys or sweaters (for children up to age 12) may be placed in the food baskets at the church entrances. No batterydriven toys please.

If shopping is a problem, a check designated for the “Toy Project” made payable to the church may be placed in the collection basket or dropped off at the rectory. Our goal is to provide a toy for the nearly 500 children of migrant farm workers belonging to San Isidro Church in Pompano Beach.

Scripture Reflections

Jesus' predictions about the end times may sound dire, but in the next paragraph Luke tells us that people woke early to listen to Jesus' teaching in the Temple area. In his person and in his message, those who heard Jesus found strength and consolation.

Like the first Christians, we may encounter events and circumstances that could lead us to despair. Through prayer, however, we find strength and consolation in Jesus' words and in his continuing presence with us to endure all things and to witness to the action of God in our world.
