This Sunday, June 4th, as every first
Sunday of the month, we are distributing
grocery bags to replenish the food pantry.
The bags are imprinted with those items most needed, but
anything you can provide will help.
We ask that you return the bags the following Sunday
placing your offering to those in need in front of the altar under
St. Joseph. Thank you for your generosity.
THE SOLEMNITY OF THE ASCENSION OF THE LORD
As in many Dioceses and Countries throughout the world, in the Province of Miami (the dioceses of the State of Florida), the observance of the Ascension of our Lord is transferred to the Seventh Sunday of Easter (this year June 2, 2019). Thursday, May 30, 2019 is observed as a weekday during the Sixth Week of Easter.
On Sunday, June 2, 2019, the prayers and readings for the Ascension of our Lord are used in place of the prayers and readings for the Seventh Sunday of Easter. Many of the faithful were not able to participate in the celebration of this important Feast for our salvation. Therefore, for pastoral reasons, it has been transferred to the seventh Sunday of Easter.

There will be a Virtus class Monday, June 3rd at 5:30 p.m. in The Basilica School Library. Please pre-register online at www.virtusonline.org. (Walk-ins are welcome, but you must register on-line immediately after the class to get credit. We can help with that.) The class runs about two hours, and please note that children may not attend.
The Archdiocese of Miami requires that all volunteers who work with children or vulnerable adults: 1) participate in the Virtus® program, and 2) be fingerprinted. This includes Eucharistic ministers who visit the homebound, senior servers, and volunteers for school, scouts and Religious Ed.
Fingerprinting is done at The Basilica School but you must first register with www.fieldprintflorida.com. Call the school office (294-1031) for access codes or more information. We’re happy to help.
If you have questions about Virtus or fingerprinting, call or email Eileen D-H at school (firstname.lastname@example.org). Many thanks to those who already participate in Virtus. Please remember to read your monthly bulletins to retain your active status in the program. God bless you for your dedication to protecting the vulnerable among us.
