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 (email@example.com). 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.
SUNDAY SCRIPTURE STUDY
Starting on Monday, April 29 and continuing for the
next 13 Mondays there will be a bible study reflecting on the
scriptures for the coming Sunday. All are welcome to attend

focusing on the readings for the upcoming
Sunday and are not sequential, it is not
necessary to attend all of the classes. No
registration needed, just come to the Star of

Center at 7:15pm on Monday night
starting April 29.
