Fr. John's February Update

Dear friends,

We are blessed to enter into yet another year of grace, each new day a gift from the Lord.  As we step into this new year,our hearts should be full ofgratitude knowing that God continues to walk with us.  I take this opportunity once again to thank all of you for making our parish communitymost welcoming, a place where people can experience God’s love through not only our worship of the Lord in the liturgy but also through our many and varied ministries that renew and reinvigorate us on our spiritual journey.  In addition, our social outreach ministrycontinues to manifest the love and care we have for both our local and wider communities.

I extend my warmest welcome to KELLI SALCEDA, our new Director of Faith Formation. Kelli comes to us from California where she served in that role for many years.  She will be a perfect fit for our parish.  A hearty welcome to you, Kelli.

This year, we will be going on pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe from 15-20 May 2023.  Another 11-day pilgrimage to Greece and Ephesus is planned for 11–21 October 2023.  Please contact the office for more details.

February 2023:

4/5 February: We will celebrate the Memorial of St. Blaise, patron of throat-related illnesses, with the blessing of the throats after every Mass.

11/12 February: Weekend of Our Catholic Appeal 2023.  St. John’s is now one of the larger parishes in the Diocese of Orlando.  Thanks to your kind generosity, we have exceeded our goal each year.  I appeal to you once again to prayerfully consider your support of the diocese and its many ministries and missions.

Christ Renews His Parish Retreat Weekendfor the women of our parish.  This weekend is one of the best ways to grow closer as sisters of shared faith and to become more familiar with our parish and the variety of ways to serve. Many lives have been enriched by this amazing program. I invite the women of our parish to join us, especially those of you who are new to the area.

Super Bowl LVII.  Our high school youth ministryteens will be sponsoring the annual“Super Bowl of Caring” on this weekend, a non-perishable food drive to benefit the Sharing Center of Central Brevard.  They will be collecting food items before and after all Masses.

14 February is a great day for the Congregation of Holy Cross.  Fr. Patrick Neary C.S.C., a brother priest of our Province, will be consecrated as Bishop of the Diocese of St. Cloud.The Ordination Mass will take place at 1:00 p.m. in the Cathedral of St. Mary in St. Cloud, MN.  We wish the Bishop-Elect God’s abundant blessings.

17/18 February:Christ Renews His Parish Retreat Weekend for the men of our parish. Many who have attended this weekend have been so moved by their experience that they are now actively involved in the life of our parish.  I ask that youconsider registering for and participating in this weekend’s retreat, especially if you are single or new to the parish.  It is one you will certainly not regret.

20 February:  Gratia Plena ministry is hosting its monthly meeting.

22 February:  Ash Wednesday and the beginning of our Lenten Season.We will offer three Masses: 8 a.m., 12:05 p.m., and 7 p.m.

24 February:  Our Lenten tradition of Friday Adoration begins after the 8:00 a.m. daily Mass, followed by the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3 p.m., Evening Prayer, and Benediction at 5.30 p.m. Soup Supper begins at 6 p.m. in the parish hall and Stations of the Cross at 7 p.m. in the church.

25/26 February: First Sunday of Lent.  The Lenten season invites us to journey with Jesus for 40 days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begin on Ash Wednesday and end at sundown on Holy Thursday.  It is a period of preparation to celebrate the Lord’s Resurrection at Easter.  During Lent, we seek the Lord in prayer by reading Sacred Scripture; we serve by giving alms; and we practice self-control through fasting.  We are called to a true inner conversion of heart as we seek to follow Christ’s will more faithfully. 

28 February: For some time now, I have been thinking about hosting an event that would create greater awareness about cancer and its impacts on both our lives and those of our loved ones.  I have witnessed so many of our parish family suffer the effects of this dreaded disease; hence, in collaboration withComplimentary Cancer Care,a not-for-profit organization located in Brevard County, St. John’s will be hosting a panel of healthcare and support resources – to include doctors and nurses of oncology, social workers, mind-body experts, a Catholic priest, and cancer survivors – for an open discussion about managing the effects of cancer. We will offer spiritual guidance, practical information, suggestions on coping, and healthy-living practices. Please come and benefit from this panel discussion. Refreshments will be provided.

I also invite you to keep all Tuesdays during Lent for something special from St. John’s to enrich and enliven your spiritual journey.

May the Lord bless you and yours abundantly as we step into another year of grace!

With love,

Fr. John
