2023 Pledge Card

Recently we celebrated Christmas, the reflection of the liturgy this week presents us with the adult Jesus who leaves his life in Nazareth to begin his preaching ministry.


He went to Galilee, a land located on the outskirts of Jerusalem, which had no good reputation and nothing good was expected from that region, yet it was there that Jesus began his preaching.


Here is the seed of what would one day be his Church.


He began his ministry with a cry: "Conversance". A phrase, not original at all, John the Baptist had already pronounced it many times.


Also, today this is the word that we have to hear from Jesus in our communities: "Convert".


We do not like to talk about conversion. We always think of something sad. The conversion of which Jesus speaks is not something forced. It is not to stop living but to feel more alive than ever. It is to experience that there is a God whom we can approach just as we are.


We can come to Jesus today too. We can simply listen to what He has to say to us, or we can tell Him our needs and hopes.


Responding to God's call is not all roses, it is full of trials, yet in the midst of the trials we find great comfort in the abiding presence of Jesus.


"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; a light has shone for those who lived in shadows of death." - Matthew 4:16


Now it is up to us to become a light for others, it is up to us to make the light of Christ present in our family and in our church.

Anglican Cycle of Prayer

The Church of North India

The Canons of the Diocese of Southeast Florida demand that the Annual Meeting of the parish community be scheduled on the last Sunday of the month of January or within the 60 days that precede it. Unfortunately, this year we are encountering a number of obstacles, including the fact that on January 29th access to the cathedral will be made extremely difficult by the 30,000+ people expected to be running in the Miami Marathon. Therefore, the Chapter is petitioning the Bishop for a postponement. We expect that our annual meeting will occur on March 5th, the second Sunday in Lent, from 11am to noon.


Mark your calendars, your presence at the meeting is of the utmost importance!

These are difficult times and many struggle to make ends meet. When you come on Sundays, please consider bringing one or more items of canned or boxed food.  Items to consider include canned goods, peanut butter, packaged cereals, paper products, dish and laundry soaps, boxed dinners, toiletry items, and feminine hygiene products. Remember that we cannot accept expired food or items that need refrigeration.


Gift Card Ministry 

The LGBT ministry has organized an on-going Gift Card collection drive to aid in the purchase of perishable food items for food pantry recipients. Our Sacristan - Roberto Soto - personally distributes these cards on a weekly basis. To continue to help this cause or if you or someone you know could benefit from this ministry, please contact Roberto Soto at:

Epiphany 3 (A)

Isaiah 9:1-4; Psalm 27:1, 5-13; 1 Corinthians 1:10-18; Matthew 4:12-23

This week’s lectio divina features the Rev. Natalie Thomas, the Rev. Melanie Slane, the Rev. Paul Daniels, and Erin Weber-Johnson. Watch their discussion at iam.ec/epiphany2023 and follow along by yourself or in a small group. To participate:

  1. Read today’s Gospel passage: When Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, so that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: “Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali, on the road by the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.” From that time Jesus began to proclaim, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him. Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people. (Matthew 4:12-23, NRSV)
  2. Reflect: Which word or short phrase caught your attention or came to mind? Whether you’re alone or in a group, say it aloud.
  3. Read: Reread the passage, perhaps in a different translation.
  4. Reflect: Where does the passage touch your life today? If you’re with a group, share your responses with each other, without discussing further. If you’re alone, say your response aloud or write it down.
  5. Read: Reread the passage, perhaps in yet another translation.
  6. Reflect: Where is God calling you to go? Where, either near or far, can you cross boundaries, listen deeply, and live like Jesus? You might consider journaling out your response and meditating on it over the course of this week.
  7. Pray: In closing, say the Collect for Epiphany 3 in the Book of Common Prayer (p. 215).

Collect for Epiphany 3

Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation, that we and the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

"Power of Love"

Call for Housing Justice

episcopal news service

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, along with Bishop John Harvey Taylor and Mayor Karen Bass, issued a rousing call for housing and socioeconomic justice at the Jan. 15 annual King Day celebration in the Diocese of Los Angeles, where more than 40,000 are homeless and five people die daily on the streets.

Curry delivered a spirited “the power of love urges us on” revival message to hundreds of cheering and applauding ecumenical, church, civic, and community leaders who packed Christ the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in the city’s historic Leimert Park neighborhood for the annual celebration livestreamed here.

The Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle

Feast Day: January 25

The conversion of Paul to Christianity is so important that the story is told three times in Acts, and Paul mentions the experience three times in his letters. An observance of Paul's conversion is mentioned in some calendars from the eighth and ninth centuries. Pope Innocent III (1198-1216) ordered that it be observed with great solemnity. After his conversion, Paul devoted his life completely to Christ. He was the leading missionary to the Gentiles in the early church. The Conversion of Saint Paul is commemorated on Jan. 25 in the Episcopal calendar of the church year. This observance concludes the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. 


O God, who, by the preaching of thine apostle Paul, hast caused the light of the Gospel to shine throughout the world: Grant, we beseech thee, that we, having his wonderful conversion in remembrance, may show forth our thankfulness unto thee for the same by following the holy doctrine which he taught; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Religious Life Sunday

January 22, 2023

episcopal church.org

Are you seeking to deepen your relationship with God and to center your life on Jesus Christ? Are you longing for companionship along the way? Episcopalians living under vows (monks, nuns, sisters, brothers, friars) provide guidance, community, and resources for the sacred journey. We invite you to celebrate Religious Life Sunday and to learn more about the spiritual support that we offer.

What is “Religious Life Sunday”?

The General Convention of The Episcopal Church approved resolution 2022-B004, “Foundation of Religious Life Sunday,” to be held each year on the 3rd Sunday of Epiphany. This Sunday focuses efforts to tell all Episcopalians that residential monastic and dispersed Christian communities exist, who we are, and how to connect with us.

What are the “religious” communities in The Episcopal Church?

Religious communities in The Episcopal Church include monastic communities, whose members live together under a rule of life and under vows such as poverty, chastity, and obedience. “Religious life” also includes dispersed Christian communities whose members are from all walks of life, who have jobs, who live in their own homes, some with families, and who live under religious vows.

What can religious life do for me and for my faith journey?

We have developed traditions and practices that assist in developing spiritual growth and discernment. We teach about prayer practices, lead retreats, give spiritual direction, assist in writing and living a rule of life, give presentations about the spiritual journey, and provide spiritual friendship. Many of our monastic communities offer hospitality for short visits or longer retreats. Religiouslifesunday.org includes resources, a video, a list of speakers, and much more.

You may perceive a call to a deeper commitment with one community, as an associate or oblate. Such commitments begin with discernment and preparation, followed by a formal service of commitment. Associates and oblates pray for the members of the community, as we also pray for them, and may offer financial support, commit to a rule of life, and attend retreats. You or someone you know may be experiencing a call to join a community; we welcome the opportunity to discern with you.

How can I connect with an Episcopal religious community?

Dispersed Christian communities: naecc.net.

Collect For Monastic Orders and Vocations

O Lord Jesus Christ, you became poor for our sake, that we might be made rich through your poverty: Guide and sanctify, we pray, those whom you call to follow you under the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, that by their prayer and service they may enrich your Church, and by their life and worship may glorify your Name; for you reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Bishops visit migrant shelter in Mexico as US government seeks to limit record-high crossings

episcopal news service

On a hillside in the Colonia Buena Vista section of Nogales, Mexico, asylum-seekers, many forced to flee violence and persecution in Mexico, Central America, Haiti and Cuba, find much-needed safety and rest at La Casa de Misericordia y de Todas Las Naciones, The House of Mercy for All The Nations.

“La Casa, in addition to being a place of respite and restoration, is also a place of story, a sacred and holy space shaped by the stories migrants share,” the Rev. David Chavez, the Diocese of Arizona’s canon for border ministries, told Episcopal News Service.

“Most stories detail the dizzying experiences of leaving ‘mi tierra natal, the land of my birth,’ fleeing physical, emotional and psychological threats and violence; leaving to be with loved ones; fleeing as the result of the devastation brought about by climate change.”

All of it takes its toll, and unfortunately, the violence, the threats and the terror don’t end when migrants flee their home country. It continues along the journey.

“Many migrants experience kidnappings, theft, rape and physical assaults at the hands of criminal gangs,” he added. “And, at times, migrants are met by communities of welcome.”


Justin Holcomb elected bishop of Central Florida

episcopal news service

The Rev. Justin S. Holcomb, canon for vocations in the Diocese of Central Florida, was elected on Jan. 14 as the fifth bishop of the diocese, pending the required consents from a majority of bishops with jurisdiction and the standing committees of The Episcopal Church.

Holcomb was elected on the first ballot out of a slate of three nominees. He received 143 votes of 225 cast in the lay order and 107 of 176 cast in the clerical order. An election on that ballot required 115 in the lay order and 90 in the clerical order.

According to the Rt. Rev. Todd Ousley, the bishop who oversees elections in The Episcopal Church, “Both an election of the first ballot and majorities of 63% and 60%, respectively, provide a sense of significant diocesan concurrence with the outcome and indicate significant support for the bishop-elect.”

Additional nominees were: • The Very Rev. Charles “Roy” Allison II, rector, St. James Episcopal Church, Ormond Beach, Florida. • The Rev. Dr. Stacey “Stace” Timothy Tafoya, rector, Church of the Epiphany, Denver, Colorado.

The in-person election was held during the diocese’s Special Electing Convention at Trinity Preparatory School, Winter Park, Florida. Pending a successful consent process, Holcomb will succeed The Rt. Rev. Gregory O. Brewer, who has served as diocesan bishop since 2011 and announced his mandatory retirement last year.


Episcopalians support communities' response to intense rainstorms, flooding across California

episcopal news service

Episcopal congregations and dioceses across California are tending to damaged church buildings and helping their communities recover from an intense barrage of deadly rainstorms in recent weeks that has caused flooding, mudslides and power outages in the drought-stricken state.

California has been plagued for several years by low rainfall, which has fueled devastating wildfires up and down the state. Now the sudden surge in rainstorms is causing its own set of problems. Known as atmospheric rivers, the long, narrow moisture-bearing weather patterns have dropped more than half a year’s worth of rain in just over two weeks.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, the Diocese of California reported that at least three churches sustained damage from flooding: Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Belmont, Transfiguration Episcopal Church in San Mateo and Holy Child & St. Martin Episcopal Church in Daly City. Episcopalians in Alameda, meanwhile, have volunteered at Christ Episcopal Church’s warming shelter so it can stay open around the clock for those displaced by the storms.


UOC-MP dissociates itself from Russia's intentions to hold a meeting at the UN on the religious situation in Ukraine

religious information service of ukraine

“In this regard, please be advised that so far, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church has not appealed to any state with a request for assistance in protecting its rights, and even more so to the state that committed a treacherous armed attack on our country. Also, we did not authorize anyone from the ROC MP to speak on our behalf at the UN. We are concerned that the issue of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is raised by entities that have nothing to do with us. We call on the Russian authorities not to speak on behalf of our Church on international platforms and not to use the religious factor for their own political purposes," the statement reads.

Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia, requested a separate meeting of the UN Security Council to be held on January 17, 2023, regarding the situation around the UOC-MP.

Nebenzia says that recently, "the persecution of dissidents and opposition leaders has been supplemented by the desire to destroy the only canonical Church in Ukraine – the Ukrainian Orthodox Church."

In addition, Russia is threatened with an escalation of the war in case of further pressure on collaborators in cassocks. According to Nebenzia, pressure on the UOC-MP will have serious consequences for regional peace and security. He stressed that what is happening in Ukraine deserves close attention from the members of the UN Security Council.
