“For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve” MK 10:45

Good stewards must not argue about who is the most important. Those who aspire to greatness must humbly serve the needs of all. Even Jesus came not to be served, but to serve All discipleship involves mission. Because of our Baptism every member of the Church is called to evangelize, and the practice of authentic Christian stewardship inevitably leads to evangelization.”

Being chosen as a godparent for baptism is an honor, for the godparent traditionally becomes a spiritual companion to the one being baptized in a journey of faith.

Please decide if your faith life makes you ready to publicly pledge that you have been leading a life in harmony with the Catholic tradition. Godparents should be both role models and resource persons, individuals who are at ease with the practice of their faith and would normally be considered as “active Catholics.” They should be people who are comfortable with answering questions about their personal relationship with God as experienced in the Catholic Communion, even if they are unsure of all the technicalities.

Godparents should be people who are interested in and will continue to spiritually support the “godchild” in the years ahead.

Catholic Church Requirements - To be a godparent, a person must be:

  1. A baptized Catholic who has received the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion and is practicing the Catholic faith.
  2. Mature enough to undertake the responsibility.
  3. A member of the Catholic Church canonically free to carry out this responsibility. If a person is married, the marriage must have been a Catholic marriage, not just a civil marriage. Catholics currently living in a marriage not considered valid by the Catholic Church or cohabitating are excluded from being a Godparent.
  4. Someone other than the father or mother, spouse or fiancé of the one who is to be baptized.
* In order to be a Godparent/Sponsor St. Mary Magdalen Church requires that the person be registered member of our parish at least 6 months previous to the date of the Baptism.

November 9 - 11, 2018.

More and more young men are seeking a profound relationship with Jesus Christ and are considering the possibility that they may be called by God to embrace a vocation to the diocesan priesthood.

“Vocation Awareness Weekend” is a retreat for men ages 17-35 who are seeking more information about the priesthood and seminary life. It is held on the grounds of St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami and consists of numerous workshops, liturgies, and social events with the seminarians. Participants will have ample time to ask questions, gain an understanding of seminary life and prayerfully consider God's call.

The next Vocation Awareness Weekend will be held the weekend of November 9-11, 2018.

If you would like to attend, please contact your parish priest or the Vocation Director, Father Elvis Gonzalez at vocations@theadom.orgor by calling (305) 762-1137. You may also find a registration form on our website at www.miamiarch.org/vocations under the Events tab.
