WOMEN ON THE JOURNEY:
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Saturday, JUNE 1 ~ 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
ST. JEROME PARISH CENTER
Spend the day with your friends, your sisters, your mothers, your daughters, and other amazing women. We will learn, laugh, share, and celebrate our journeys with each other.
With the help of Jackie Mallory, noted retreat leader in the Diocese of St. Petersburg and Catechetical Scholar with the National Catholic Education Association, we will explore six women in Luke’s Gospel whose lives were interrupted by the Grace of God: Mary and Elizabeth, the woman with a hemorrhage, the daughter of Jarius, and Martha and Mary. Scripture, reflections, sharing, and journaling will help us relate these women to our lives.
Cost: $15 includes lunch

Pope Benedict declared a Year of Faith,
that commenced October 11.
The Year of Faith is intended to contribute to a renewed conversion to the Lord Jesus and to rediscovery of faith, so that the members of the Church will be credible and joy-filled witnesses to the Risen Lord in the world of today -- capable of leading those many people who are seeking it to the 'door of faith'.
-- Congregation for the Doctorine of the Faith,
"Note with Pastoral Recommendations for the Year of Faith
The major themes of this special year are the very foundation of our faith:
* Belief in the Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit
- and in the Paschal Mystery, the Crucifixion, Death
and Resurrection of Jesus
* A deepened encounter with the Risen Lord, who is the
Light of Faith
* A renewed commitment to the Mass and the Eucharist
Here in Florida, we have had many men and women who were instrumental in bringing the faith to our shores. In the August 12, 2012 St. Jerome bulletin, you read about the faith of Fr. Juan Zuarez, OFM, Bishop-elect of Florida, who we believe celebrated the First Mass in Florida in 1528 on the shores of Boca Ciega Bay.
It is most important that this Year of Faith
is welcomed with joy and celebration!
welcomes new members.
The Evangelization Ministry Meetings are held the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 7:30 p.m. in the Education Building.
The aim of this team is to weave the spirit of evangelization through all endeavors at St. Jerome enabling every parishioner to experience the love of Christ.
For more information,
please call Sister Lucia/595-4610.
