Parishioner receives Award for Examplary Concern
Our parishioner, Jena King Getchell, was recently
presented an award in Washington, DC for exemplary
concern and efforts towards hurricane relief last fall.
She was acknowledged at the 34th Annual Awards
Dinner for the Executive Office of USA Attorneys at the Robert F. Kennedy Main
Justice Building in Washington.
Jena was a member of the team that headed up
efforts to move emergency relief items from Florida and Puerto Rico to the
USA Attorney’s Office for the Virgin Islands after Hurricane Irma and then from
Florida to the District of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. This was a logistics
challenge and they rose to the occasion. Congratulations, Jena!

A New Circular Driveway - Donations Now Being Accepted
Architects and engineers have now designed phase #1
of plans for a new circular driveway to be installed
outside the Sevilla Avenue entrance to our church.
Meant to assist the comfortable drop o of our elderly
and handicapped parishioners, and assist with the ease
of entrance to the church, especially on rainy days, the
circular driveway project will likely get underway this
summer, to be completed by early fall.
We are also
eager to build a new outdoor rosary/prayer garden with
memorialized bricks, benches, a gazebo and new trees
in the backyard of the church, where the famous big tree used to be before the hurricane. We will soon be
producing a sketch of the project for everyone’s review.
- The price tag for the circular driveway
will be approximately $49,500.
- The good news is that we already have received $25,800 in
Donations and sponsorships are now being accepted in person to Father Davis or on-line, as part of the drop-down donation platform at here.
For more information on donation opportunities,
please contact Jorge Perez at the Office of Advancement, (305) 446-9950, ext. 318.
