“We Stand for Life” Adopt-a-Day: Along with other parishes in our diocese, OLSS will be implementing a regular schedule for prayer outside area abortion clinics. This allows interested parishioners to more easily participate whenever they are able, with predictable times and locations.
To start, our team has designated the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month, between the hours of 12:30-1:30.
We will begin on Tuesday, March 16, on the premises of the 
Women’s Help Center
6210 Samuel Wells Dr. Ste. 1201
(This is across the street from the Florida Women’s Center, where the abortions are performed.)

Parishioners may feel free to attend as often as they like. Simply notify one of our team coordinators listed below, as we want to be sure to have at least two people at all times. Signs will be provided. 

Team Coordinators:
Susan Harrison-(904)705-2304 · Laura Moritz-(904)525-5646 · Theresa Richter-(904)707-8590 · Lisa Frank-(904)718-7533

The OLSS ministry for Human Life and Dignity is pleased to announce the first in a series of speaking events we will be hosting in 2021, each focusing on a different issue regarding the sanctity of human life. 

On Thursday, May 6- 6:30-8:00, our own Ernie Bono will be in the OLSS cultural center to delve into the teachings of the Catholic Church on capital punishment.

Additionally, we have invited Kevin Gay, CEO and Reggie Fullwood, COO, of Operation New Hope [] to talk about the organization’s valuable efforts in helping former prisoners to successfully re-assimilate into society. Following the presentations the speakers will be available for questions. 

Wine and cheese will be provided for refreshment. We hope to see you there!
