Amor en Acción

Amor en Acción is a missionary community of the Archdiocese of Miami, formed in 1976 by a group of young immigrants. They were inspired by the principle of “faith without actions is dead”  (James 2:14), seeking ways to share that love they experienced in Christ with those living in poverty and suffering oppression. Sister Diocese relationships have been established in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Amor en Acción continues to be primarily a volunteer missionary effort, enriched by its roots in a migrant story, and called to live mission in ordinary life, in extraordinary ways.

Making concrete the universal call to evangelize, volunteer catechists teach our Parish Religious Education classes, passing on the Catholic faith and assisting in the Sacramental preparation of our children.

Catholic Disciples in the Public Square

CDPS educates people on the current issues impacting the Catholic Church and inspires them to get involved. Its primary mission is to educate parishioners on life, family, and religious freedom issues and to inspire Catholic identity into action. CDPS members have launched awareness campaigns for Religious Freedom, and established the Fortnight for Freedom at COTLF. CDPS also organizes protests against Planned Parenthood, and plans and participates in 40 Days 4 Life activities.

Homebound Ministry

This is an invaluable service to those members of the parish family who are no longer able to attend Sunday Mass. Arrangements can be made for a home visit by a priest, deacon, or lay minister. Communion, confession, and anointing can be made available and scheduled.

Homeless Ministry

The COTLF Homeless Ministry is comprised of altruistic volunteers, mainly from our parish, and outside as well, that provide food, drink, and service to the homeless people of Miami through a partnership with the Miami Rescue Mission. 100% of our donations of food come from our volunteers and neighborhood food stores. We meet once a month on the 2nd Sunday of every month, and our goal is to serve dinner to 350 individuals, men, women, and children at the MRM.

Children 14 years and older are welcomed and will be provided with community service hours.

Reaching for a Smile
