PASTORAL CARE &
CHRISTIAN
FORMATION

Pastoral Care and
Religious Education
ministries exist for
people of all ages to
grow in love and service
to God.  All our
programs are
coordinated with the
Diocese of Orlando to
let staff and volunteers
present meaningful
spiritual educational
programs and events.
These include Bible
studies, small faith
communities, and
preparing the faithful for
the sacraments.

Other Pastoral Care
programs include:
Respite Care, Respect
for Life Ministry and
praying for vocations
through the Elijah Cup
program.

With a solid foundation
of catechists and
volunteers, we welcome
new members of all ages
and walks of life as they
answer their personal
call from God to grow in
faith.  We also continue
to nourish all families
who are part of our parish
ADMINISTRATION

Administration is the
business backbone of our
parish!  Our dedicated
staff and volunteers are
the human face of our
parish administration.
This ministry has
responsibilities for our
parish budget,
coordinate activities and
events, scheduling the
use and upkeep of our
nine principal buildings
and grounds including
all equipment, repairs,
and routine
maintenance.  

Administration is also
responsible for all parish
records.  They handle
memorials, tributes,
dedications and manage
incoming calls for every
imaginable need.

Finance supports the
various ministries of the
parish, allocates funds
based on each
individual ministry. For a
small parish we do an
outstanding job of
managing our income
and expenses.  As an
example we are building
our new church debt free!

Counter
On the value of dialogue in Catholic education, Pope
Francis reportedly said:

Effectively, Catholic schools and universities
are attended
by many students who are not Christian or do not believe
.
Catholic educational institutions offer to all an approach to
education that has as
its aim the full development of the
person, which responds to the right of every person to
access to knowledge.
However, they are also called upon to
offer, with full respect for the freedom of each person and
using the methods appropriate to the scholastic
environment
, the Christian belief, that is, to present Jesus
Christ as the meaning of life, the cosmos and history.
Jesus
began to proclaim the good news of the 'Galilee of the
people', a crossroads of people, diverse in terms of race,
culture and religion. This context resembles today's world,
in certain respects.
The profound changes that have led to
the ever wider diffusion of multicultural societies require
those who work in the school or university sector to be
involved in educational itineraries involving comparison and
dialogue, with a courageous and innovative fidelity that
enables Catholic identity to encounter the various 'souls' of
multicultural society.
