Thanksgiving Day Schedule
Thursday, November 22nd : Bilingual Mass at 9:00 am in the Church.
Offices And Blessed Sacrament Chapel will Be Closed on Thursday and Friday.
Masses for Friday night (6:00 pm and 7:00pm) will be celebrated as usual.
In late August, we launched our Hospitality Ministry and Information table.
The purpose of this Ministry is to assist Parishioners with answering any questions they may have about our parish services. The Ministers are equipped to register parishioners, provide information on Weddings, Baptism requirements, Godparent qualifications, Mass hours, and soon they will be able to take Mass intentions.
The Ministers are stationed outside the doors on the East side of the Church and wear a crème colored golf shirt with black pants/skirt. These ministers currently serve all the Sunday Masses. We are in need of more Ministers.
If you are interested in joining this new Ministry, please contact Amarily Lora at (954) 971-8780 ext. 201.

O, Lord God of hosts, O God of our salvation, O God who alone workest wonders, do thou now look down with mercy and compassion on thy humble servants and out of love for mankind hearken and have mercy on us. Look with mercy, we pray thee, O Lord, on those of our sons and daughters who now serve in our Armed Forces, and who in obedience to their superiors have for our sakes placed themselves in harm’s way. Grant that those who request the protection of thy right hand may be overpowered by no adverse force, and may the invited defense of thy mighty power shield thy faithful sons and daughters. Watch over them, O Lord, and bring them back safely to those who love them. Grant courage and steadfast faith to them and to those who long for their return. Bring a quick and bloodless end to these conflicts and spare the lives of the innocent. Grant no increase to the numbers of widows and orphans and relieve the privations of the bereaved and wounded, whether wounded in body or in soul. Restore peace in our day, O Lord, that thy truth may go forth unhindered, for Thou, O Lord, art the Prince of Peace and art everglorified with thine unoriginated Father and the allholy, good, and lifegiving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen..

God Bless Our Troops and their Families!!!
In the course of his teaching Jesus said to the crowds, "Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation."
He sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treas-ury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood."
Pope Francis’ Intentions for the month of November 2018
In the service of peace:
That the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict.
Message from the Archdiocese
- Join us for a Mass through which, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, Archbishop Thomas Wenski expresses his gratitude to South Florida Catholics who have consistently donated to the annual Archbishop’s Charities and Development appeal (ABCD). Visit www.adomdevelopment.org/thanksforgiving.
- What do bequests, life insurance gifts, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and life time giving have in common?
They’re ways you can pass on your Catholic Heritage, Faith and Love for San Isidro. Contact the rectory or call the Office of Planned Giving at (305) 7621110 for more information.
- “…but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood." MK 12:44
Both widows in today’s readings gave all they had to the work of the Lord, one using all her remaining food to feed Elijah and the other offering her two copper coins to the temple treasury. Faithful stewards give all that is asked and trust the Lord to be faithful to His promises.
