and our parishioner during their visit.
At the Hospital
When you or a loved one is in the hospital,
please inform the staff at registration or later
that you are Catholic and would like to be on

Our Catholic Appeal 2014
Did you know? Your gifts to Our Catholic Appeal prepare our deacons for a lifetime of service.
Through the Sacrament of Holy Orders, the deacon is ordained to be a servant of Christ to His people, and a humble aid to the ministry of priests and
the bishop. The Diocesan Office of Permanent Diaconate, which is supported by
your generous gifts to Our Catholic A ppeal, assists our Deacons at every step, from
discernment to training to ongoing spiritual formation.
Please remember that our parish goal is $336,601. The pledged amount to date is
$275,262 which is 81.8% of our goal, with 1,183 (48.9%) families participating. Once we have achieved our goal, the majority of additional funds will be
returned to our parish to support our own local needs. This year, we will commit
our parish over-goal dollars to the building fund.
Save Time and Donate Online!
Our parish now uses an Online Giving
system called WeShare. This allows
you to make your donations without
writing a check each week. You can set
up a recurring weekly or monthly payment, allocate different amounts for our
different collections, and view complete, accurate financial records at any
time. It saves all of us time and is a win
-win for our parish!
Those who wish to continue to use traditional methods of offering may do so;
however, we ask that you prayerfully
consider Online Giving. If you would
like to enroll, please visit our website
and click online contributions. For
questions about the program or setting
up your account, or for our help with

interested in joining this or another group or have questions call Connie Accurso (750-3130) or Frank Webber.
“SYMBOLON:” Critically
acclaimed by prominent
members of the church,
SYMBOLON is a new
course by Augustine Institute
which provides a compelling
and comprehensive explanation of the Catholic Faith
through beautifully crafted
presentations, state-of-the-art video and a dynamic team
of outstanding teachers, led by professor, speaker and
author Dr. Edward Sri. The course, through a series of
ten 90 minute sessions, provides a clear and compelling
vision of what the church teaches and how to live it
amidst the challenges of contemporary society. It will be
offered in September!!
Litbit: Presider: Why do we call the pr iest a pr esider? Those of us who predate Vatican II remember using
terms like “hearing Mass,” or “attending Mass.” We
said that Father “said” Mass. All of these ways of speaking about our Sunday Worship give the feeling of a passive, audience-type event. And in many ways, it was.
Mass was in Latin and the music was supplied by the
choir, if there was any at all. Along with the Vatican II
emphasis of the importance of the activity of the assembly, was the conviction that our worship experience was
a celebration, a celebration of praise and thanksgiving.
For a while, the Church started calling the priest the celebrant, but it quickly realized that that was misleading,
because ALL OF US celebrate the liturgy. The priest’s
role is to lead our prayer. Therefore, his role is described
as “presider” or sometimes “priest-celebrant” the one
who presides over the assembly and leads us in our action of prayer and praise. (Copyright 2008, Resource Publi-

Come Pray for our Troops at Veterans Park
A prayer group for our troops meets every Thursday at 8:00 a.m. at Veterans' Memorial Park in Spanish Springs. The
group has been meeting for 8 years, and the main purpose is so the people don't forget our soldiers. The names of any
soldier who has lost their life in the past week are read. Then a list is read of approximately 150 men and women who
are now overseas and at home. Then the group says prayers for the safety of the soldiers and their families. At the end,
we sing a patriotic song.
After the meeting there is a fellowship breakfast at Too Jays in Spanish Springs. Everyone is welcome. It is only 20-30
minutes of your time. The troops need to be remembered; they give us so much.
For information call Tom or Barbara Troisi at (352) 430-0175

As many of you have noticed the Saturday Vigil
Mass times have changed. The reason for this
change is because the Policy of the Providence of
Miami states: A Vigil Mass cannot be held before
4:00 p.m. We were given special consideration by
the Bishop to celebrate Mass at 3:00pm on Saturday due to the number of masses necessary to accommodate our blossoming parish.
THANK YOU…
...for your patience and for using caution as we continue the construction of our new church. Please consider wearing closed-toed shoes for safety’s sake.
Please refrain from going near or into the new church, as it is a construction site at this
time. Please note the new parking area, once paved, is still under construction - we
cannot park there as of yet.
We thank you for your cooperation.
Church construction as of July 14, 2014.

Outreach and Food Pantry
Our expenses during the past month were close to three
thousand dollars. This is usually the case in the summer and it decreases in the winter. There were fourteen
clients who were helped by our personal assistance volunteers with electricity being the most expensive item. With
the heat, humidity, and poor insulation, most clients have
high bills and have a difficult time paying their bill when
their work hours have been decreased. Other items that
were paid were rent, medicine, gas and phone bills. Usually financial assistance is given only once a year. Since
donations are down from parishioners and clubs, six hundred dollars was also spent for food to be distr ibuted
at the pantry.
Our income is derived from Our Mother's Attic and donations. Y our support is appreciated by our volunteers as
well as clients.
The office and pantry is located at San Pedro Maldonado
Mission Church, across from the city hall in downtown
Wildwood. This location is convenient to our clients who
may need to walk. Volunteers are usually in the office
Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 10 am to see clients
with appointments. Privacy, prayer, compassionate listening, and advice are used with every person who comes to
us for help. Appointments are necessary for an appropriate
amount of time is given for each client.
Volunteers for the pantry bring food from the church to
the pantry where food is sorted, shelved, and inventoried.
Food is purchased in order that enough is on hand to be
distributed. Clients are interviewed and given food for
their household.
Food requested includes cereal; canned fruit and vegetables; canned meat including pasta and sausages;
crackers and peanut butter; 1lb packages of rice and
dried pinto beans; condiments including mustard and
ketchup; mac and cheese; pudding mixes; and instant
mashed potatoes. If you ar e able to donate paper products; soap; and/or grocery cards, that would also be appreciated.
Please remember that children are home for the summer
and with the increases in food prices, providing for that
extra meal may bring a financial hardship for many families. Also, many senior citizens may not have had the employment opportunities that many of us had in northern
states and they have a difficult time with their small income.
"We are the hands of Christ reaching out to those in
need. We are the spirit of hope......Go make a
difference in the world."

Prayer for the hungry:
Let us pray the Lord gives us the grace to envisage a
world in which no one must ever again die of hunger.
And asking this in grace, I give you a blessing. Amen.

The 4th Degree of the Knights of Columbus at St.
Marks's the Evangelist Church would like to thank
everyone for their support during the recent US Flag collection. We collected over 300 flags. The US flag is a
very special icon for the people of this country. Many
have made sacrifices and many have made the ultimate
sacrifice for the freedom this symbol represents. Special
treatment should be given to these flags when they become worn, torn, and faded, the 4th Degree at St. Mark's
insured they received the dignity and respect the flag deserves. The flags were properly "Retired" during Flag
Retirement Ceremonies on Flag Day. We thank you for
your support and look forward to your support again next
year.
