There will be a Virtus class Thursday, August 29 at
6:00 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, but please note that due to the content
children may not attend.
Who should attend Virtus? If you are a volunteer who
works with children or vulnerable adults, the Archdiocese of
Miami requires that: 1) you participate in the Virtus®
program (i.e., attend the class and read short monthly
bulletins); and 2) be fingerprinted.
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 (305-294-1031 or
firstname.lastname@example.org). Many thanks to those who are
already Virtus participants. Please remember to read your
monthly bulletins to retain your active status in the program
and may God bless you for your dedication to protecting the
vulnerable among us!
If you are working your way through the grieving process from the death of a spouse, parent, child, sibling or friend, be reminded that grief support meetings are available to you every Thursday at 7:15 pm in the St. Francis Room of the Klaus Murphy Center. All bereaved are invited to receive support.
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 Catholic Daughters usually meet the first Sunday of
every month after the 9:00 am Mass. Our October meeting will
be next Sunday, October 7th, after the 9:00 am Mass in the
Klaus Murphy Center. A light breakfast will be served before
If you are interested in joining Catholic Daughters you
