A message from the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Office for National Child Abuse Prevention Month:
All employees and volunteers have a responsibility to behave appropriately and uphold a specific set of standards, even if your role does not directly involve minors or vulnerable adults. It is still your responsibility to be a safe adult, which means upholding healthy and appropriate behaviors when interacting with them.

We take particular care when addressing environments and interactions involving minors because of their inherent vulnerability as children. Our behavior can make children less or more vulnerable, and less or more able to be manipulated (and possibly abused).

ABCD 2023 +

Wednesday, January 10, 2024

Our 2nd Collection today will be for the 2023 Archbishop’s Charities & Development Drive (ABCD). Thank you for your very important contribution, it is greatly appreciated.

In Solidarity with the World in Need

The Church is called to be an “advocate of justice and of the poor” in the face of intolerable social and economic inequalities, which “cry to heaven”. Your gifts to the ABCD helps the Church here in South Florida to walk with the poor as their friend.

The ABCD appeal is made once a year, and unlike the weekly collections at Masses, which stay in the local parish, these funds go to the archdiocese, to fund programs and services that are beyond the scope of individual churches.

ABCD exists because of the generosity of people like yourselves, people who in good times and in bad times keep their support of the Church on their list of major priorities.

Every gift makes a difference. Thank you and God bless you.

Nuestra segunda colecta de hoy será para el ABCD. Gracias por tu aporte tan importante, se agradece mucho.

Prayer Candles +

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

"I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life."
John 8:12


In the Catholic church, light has always had a special significance because it represents Christ. We know that Jesus called himself the Light of the world. Additionally, St. John’s Gospel connects Christ with the imagery of light in John 1:4: “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”

Lighting a candle for someone living or deceased is a way to both extend your prayers and show solidarity with the person the prayer is being made on behalf of. We also believe in the importance of our prayers for those who have died, asking the Lord to forgive any sins they may have committed due to human frailty, but it is also a great way to keep their memory alive as we honor who they were and the good they did. The faithful also light candles as a sign of gratitude to God for answered prayers.

Here, at Our Lady of the Lakes, we want to offer you this opportunity to pray for all your intentions with the Prayer Candles placed in our lobby.

These candles can be lit for:

  • The health of someone
  • In memory of someone who has passed away
  • In thanksgiving for a grace or favor granted to you
  • The intentions of someone dear to you (living)

To request your Prayer Candle, please fill the online form.

For more information, please contact the office at: (305) 558-2202.
