KofC #4934 – Announce Family of the Year

In 2021, Our Council began recognizing families that serve as an inspiration to our parish, community, and Counsel by supporting and strengthening Catholic family life.

At the end of the year, each council that participates in the program selects a Family of the Year. The family of the year is one that served as an incredible inspiration to all of us. Our family of the year truly fits this description. This family has been extremely active in all three of our local parishes – Sacred Heart, St Gerard’s and Our Lady Star of the Sea. They have been very active at our Sacred Heart School and Fr Lopez High School. They are well known for helping others in our community and their active involvement with the Knights of Columbus and all our activities.

Sadly, the family and all of us experienced a terrible loss in September with the passing of the father resulting from Covid complications, but that hasn’t affected the resolution of the family to move forward in the way of our Lord.

 It is a great honor to present our Family of the Year award to the family of                  Terry &  Barbara Cassidy.


Feast of Saint Francis – Blessing of Animals

Blessing of Pets on Mondays feast of Saint Francis was by far the most successful we have ever had! Thank you to all who brought their pets for blessing, to our pastor Rev. Fr. John Tizio, Deacon Lou Bartos for assisting, and the 7th grade students of Sacred Heart for a very organized assembly. God bless all creatures God blessed us with!


Our Catholic Appeal

Our Catholic Appeal, an annual opportunity to support the ministries of our diocese. During this unprecedented time, when so much has been and remains uncertain, your unwavering faith has demonstrated your continuing dedication to your own journey of discipleship as well as our Holy Catholic Church. Thanks to your gifts, the Diocese of Orlando is able to provide resources and services to our parish and to every Catholic parish and school in Central Florida, even in the midst of these unprecedented times. Some examples include educating 22 Seminarians in Formation, enriching over 58,000 adults and children in faith formation and sacramental preparation and supporting more than 75,000 people with food, housing, healthcare, and adoption services.

I thank all of you who have given to Our Catholic Appeal in past years. I thank you for your faithful response. We understand that each of us has been affected by the circumstances of the past year so please know that we are praying for you, and we are here to support you however we can. I simply ask that you join us in prayer and unity.
