The Parish Mission of St. Martha Church

We, the Roman Catholic Parish of St Martha, are a diverse and multicultural parish in Miami Shores, Florida. As a vibrant Catholic community of faith, we seek to become closer to God through worship, prayer, sacraments, spiritual formation, fellowship and hospitality

Strengthened by the Holy Spirit, we go forth proclaiming the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ in order to make disciples and serve our brothers and sisters with our time, talents and treasure. Through our evangelization in word and deed, we strive to be the light of the world.

Next week is World Mission Sunday!

Each year, the entire Church is engaged to support young mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe, where priests, religious and lay leaders serve the poorest of the poor. Let us join in prayers and also in giving generously in next week’s second collection, for all of the missionary efforts throughout the world.

Stewardship

“My God will supply whatever you need…” - PHILIPPIANS 4:19

God really does provide for all; however He is more plentiful to those who are grateful and generous. This concept is very difficult to believe for people that don’t live a stewardship life-style. People are skeptical and say it’s just coincidence. If you are skeptical, try living a stewardship lifestyle for just one month – commit to being generous with your gifts of time, talent and treasure and see how God provides for your needs.

Planned Giving

Will your estate be eaten up by taxes?
It doesn’t have to happen. Planned giving pro-grams can help you avoid gifting the State when you didn’t intend to and help you pre-serve your Catholic heritage.

Contact the Planned Giving Office at (305) 762-1110 or www.adomgift.org.

One of the Works of Mercy

One of the Works of Mercy is to pray for the living and the dead. The Sacrifice of the Mass is the best and most beneficial prayer; remember your living and deceased loved ones by offering masses on their behalf.

Call the office, 305-751-0005, by 3:00pm on Mondays to include your Mass request for the following week. Suggested donation $10.00.
