Bishop Noonan @ Confirmation prep

January 21, 2009 Leave a comment

090121_sjvcs-ccd-bishop-noonan-confirmation-1CCD — Since I’m a catechist for 10th grade Confirmation preparation (@ St Timothy’s), I went to the Confirmation prayer service led by Bishop Noonan.  Kids, parents and sponsors prayed together with a very meaningful reflection by Bishop Noonan on Baptism, parents, purpose of marriage, our growth in faith, our call to service, our lives of prayer, and our response in Confirmation.  — Awesome … I’m glad I went!

Confirmation Mass

Today, I helped alter serve at my home parish of St Bernadette Catholic Church (Hollywood, FL) for Confirmation Mass with Miami Auxiliary Bishop Roman and Deacon Blanco (from St Brendan High School), along with my pastor Fr Dalton, Deacon Lou, and Fr Kris (from Archbishop McCarthy High School).  A beautiful Mass for some great kids and parents (some I taught last year in CCD).

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Giftshop in Hollywood, FL @ St Bernadette Catholic ChurchI went to 6pm Mass at my parish of St Bernadette Catholic Church in Hollywood, FL.  While I was there, I browsed around our giftshop called “Our Lady of Lourdes Giftshop.”  It keeps getting better and better.  Here are some pictures, but they don’t do it justice.  They’re open after all Masses (Sat 4pm, Sunday 7:30am, 9am, 10:45am, 6pm) and located at 7450 Stirling Road in Hollywood, FL 33024. — if you go, tell Michelle you saw it here!

Christian Holy Spirit IPhone posterSince we were so close to my home parish of St Bernadette in Hollywood, FL, I stopped in to see the high school RCIT class preparing for Confirmation this year @ 4pm.  I saw this cool poster that one of the catechists made and had to take some pictures.  It’s a poster of an Apple IPhone, but with Christian buttons.  — Some great details

Little Flower Catholic Church in Hollywood, FL

About 1 Sunday each month, all of us seminarians here at St John Vianney College Seminary visit a different parish of the Archdiocese of Miami.  Our Rector started the tradition last year and I thinks it’s a great idea.  It exposes us to different parish life as well as makes us visible to the community as a living vocation poster.

Little Flower Catholic Church in Hollywood, FL & seminarians from St John Vianney College Seminary, Miami, FL Today, we all drove up to my ‘hood to Little Flower Parish in Hollywood, FL.  (My parish of St Bernadette is also in Hollywood.)  The pastor Fr O’Dwyer was one of the priest how interviewed me during my seminarian application last year.  The parish was very inviting and provided great food after Mass with lots of conversation with parishoners.  I even found a family to practice my Polish with.  — Definitely, a great tradition I hope we continue
