After Black Friday and Cyber Monday the back-to back days of deals join us in kicking off the holiday giving season on Giving Tuesday!

On this global day of giving, our goal is to raise $50,000 as COVID-19 has greatly impacted our church’s financial sustainability by limiting the number of worshipers at the Masses. Our church finances have been greatly affected and we need your financial support.

With your help, we can traverse this challenge successfully and provide our parishioners with a safe and healthy environment during these challenging times. We know that with your help and support it will be possible to continue servicing our parishioners in a safe and Christian environment. Share this message with friends and family and encourage them to join the movement.

The world doesn’t change as long as we think we’re better than others. The world changes when humanity comes together with open hearts, kindness, love and compassion towards one another. Tracy Smith

A blood donation is truly a "gift of life"! Just to think that a healthy individual can give to others in their community who are sick or injured. In one hour’s time, a person can donate one unit of blood that can be separated into four individual components that could help save multiple lives.

Please consider donating blood at our next blood drive, to be held on:

  • Saturday, December 12th / Sabado, 12 de Diciembre
    1:30pm -7:00pm
  • Sunday, December 13th / Domingo, 13 de Diciembre
    8:00am - 7:00pm

We would like to introduce the newest member of our music ministry: our organist, Michael Sayers.

Michael, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, has been a full-time church musician since 1986. He earned his Bachelor of Music Education from Northern Kentucky University and took some graduate courses at the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) of the University of Cincinnati.

Since coming to South Florida in 1997, some of his experiences have included Music Director of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church and Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Adjunct Liturgist and Organist at St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami, and Music Director at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School where he was entrusted with establishing a music program at the newly created high school.

Most recently, he worked as the Music Associate at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale where he directed the high school and middle school choirs (Kirk Singers and Chapel Singers). Both choirs performed an annual Broadway musical. He also led the high school choir on annual concert tours throughout the United States, including tours to Costa Rica and Great Britain.

Welcome, Michael! We are delighted to have you join the Our Lady of the Lakes family!

Prayers for each day

Kneeling before Mary Most Holy, making the Sign of the Cross, the following is said:

  • Act of Contrition
    "My Lord, Jesus Christ, God and true Man, my Creator and Redeemer, because you are who you are, and because I love you above all things, I am sorry with all my heart for having offended you. I propose to make amends and confess in due time and I offer whatever I do in satisfaction of my sins, and I trust by your kindness and infinite mercy, that you will forgive me and give me grace to never sin again. I hope so through the intercession of my Mother, Our Lady the Virgin of Guadalupe. Amen. "
  • Ask yourself: …
    Say four Salves in memory of the four apparitions and then pray each day.

    "Señor mío, Jesucristo, Dios y Hombre verdadero, Creador y Redentor mío, por ser vos quien sois, y porque os amo sobre todas las cosas, me pesa de todo corazón haberos ofendido. Propongo enmendarme y confesarme a su tiempo y ofrezco cuanto hiciere en satisfacción de mis pecados, y confío por vuestra bondad y misericordia infinita, que me perdonaréis y me daréis gracia para nunca más pecar. Así lo espero por intercesión de mi Madre, nuestra Señora la Virgen de Guadalupe. Amén. "
