For the 49 parishioners joining Father Davis on the February 16th pilgrimage to the Holy Land, there will be a pre-departure meeting on Tuesday, January 30th at 7:30pm in Comber Hall.

Travel documents, itineraries, plane tickets, luggage tags, and other travel related information will be distributed at that time. The spiritual adventure of a lifetime is now right around the corner. See you on January 30th.

The custom of the last six years at Little Flower has been to have a special potluck dinner, called “Catholic Casseroles,” each Wednesday evening during Lent. The dinner is followed by a 30 to 40 minute seasonal reflection, meant to assist the community in their Lenten journey.

This year, we will continue this custom, with two new features:

  • we will have a rotational schedule of speakers;
  • we will have a simultaneous program
    in English and Spanish (English on the ground floor;
    Spanish on the top floor of Comber Hall).

The community dinner starts at 6:30pm. The reflection starts at 7:30pm and concludes by 8:15pm. All are welcome.

The following is the schedule of speakers:

Date First Floor English Second Floor Spanish
Feb. 21 Father Flores Deacon Fleitas
Feb. 28 Father Davis Father Flores
Mar. 7 Father Stravinskas Deacon Parlade
Mar. 14 Deacon Fleitas Father Garreaud
Mar. 21 Father Garreaud Father Genu

Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 9:00am to 3:30pm.

Address: St. Thomas University, Convocation Hall

We invite you to attend the 19th Annual Marriage Covenant Retreat the Weekend of March 3rd, 4th & 5th. The Marriage Covenant retreat consists of a weekend of activities, talks, and exercises to strengthen our marriages. We cover key topics such as God’s place in our marriage, praying as a couple, communication, forgiveness, and family.

The retreat provides a unique opportunity to pause from daily life and reflect on our marriages. It is also a great way to have fun and to meet other couples. Subsequent to the retreat, we have monthly meetings. These meetings not only strengthen our marriage but they are fun and create long-lasting friendships.
