Sometimes things can go very wrong in a marriage.  Retrouvaille is a program to help heal and support married couples experiencing difficulties, couples broken, lonely and hurting.  It’s also for couples who have separated or divorced and want to try again.  Our next program begins in Orlando January 25-27, 2019.  For more information and registration, call 352-274-4614.  All calls and names held in strictest confidence.

Vibrant Faith @ Home is an interactive, online resource center that offers free faith formation tips and tools to build a “stronger, more faith-focused family.” Its offerings are based on the Four Keys for Passing on Faith: Caring Conversation, Rituals and Traditions, Devotional Practices, and Service. Downloads include explanation of the Four Keys, family activities, parenting advice, blogs, devotions, articles, how-to videos, interactive forums and Bible basics. Vibrant Faith @ Home’s writing team is made up of an ecumenical group of clergy and laity. A publicity tool kit to promote the site’s use in the congregation is provided free of charge. A Spanish language version of the website and all its resources is also available. While offerings are free, sign up is required. A companion site, Vibrant Faith Ministries, sells related resources, including “Taking Faith Home” a lectionary-based bulletin insert series. Vibrant Faith @ Home can also be accessed using a mobile phone application that can be downloaded from the website.

  The Catholic Foodie brings much more to the table than merely recipes and reviews. The show highlights how food – good food – can be a sign of God’s love and care for each of us and our families. The tagline, “where food meets faith,” speaks volumes about the importance of family, which is so often developed around the kitchen table.

  3-Minute Retreats invite you to take a short prayer break right at your computer. Spend some quiet time reflecting on a Scripture passage.  Knowing that not everyone prays at the same pace, you have control over the pace of the retreat. After each screen, a Continue button will appear. Click it when you are ready to move on. If you are new to online prayer, the basic timing of the screens will guide you through the experience.

I arise today
Through God's strength:
God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's host to save me

Christ to shield me today
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
