Spirit Life Youth Group was created to give teenagers, from ages 14-18, an experience with Christ.

We are more than a youth group; we are a family in faith who learns, laughs, and prays together.

Our goal is to show others to not be afraid of their faith, rather to embrace it with an open heart!

“I’d rather stand with God and be judged by the world, than stand with the world and be judged by God.” - Grace Wesley

Parishioner, Mariela Matamala, describes herself as a “school counselor (twenty-five years and counting), mother of three adult children, wife to Jorge, her best friend of 30 years and a daughter of God”. No doubt you have received the host from her during ass at Our Lady of Lourdes, where she also serves as a Eucharistic Minister. I came to meet her on our pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes this past June, when a mutual friend urged me to introduce myself. I did this crossing the Atlantic to Spain where she immediately embraced me in a warm hug and let me know she had been praying for me for the past two years. Strangers no more, she now became “my go- to- Catholic” for the duration of our journey together.

There is something so approachable and kind in her manner of expression that I felt extremely comfortable asking her all of my questions about the processions, the rosary, Bernadette and Mary herself. Each time she answered me with such patience and love for what she was sharing. It doesn’t take long for someone to realize that Mariela not only believes wholeheartedly, she also shares her faith with sincere joy and real-life candor that you come away better for the thoughtful exchange. I would describe her as a “connector”, someone that brings people together and more specifically, to God.

La parroquiana, Mariela Matamala, se describe a sí misma como una “consejera escolar (25 años y contando), madre de tres hijos adultos, esposa de Jorge su mejor amigo por 30 años e hija de Dios”. No hay duda que ha recibido la Comunión de ella durante la Misa en Nuestra Señora de Lourdes, donde también sirve como ministro de la Comunión. La conocí durante nuestro Peregrinaje al Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Lourdes este pasado junio cuando un amigo mutuo me instó a presentarme. Hice esto mientras cruzaba el Atlántico hacia España y ella inmediatamente me acogió con un tierno abrazo y me dijo que había estado orando por mi por los dos últimos años. Ahora ya no extraños ella se convirtió en “mi católico donde ir” por el resto de nuestro camino juntas.

Hay algo en su manera de expresarse que la hace alcanzable y me sentí extremadamente cómoda de preguntarle todas mis preguntas acerca de las procesiones, el rosario, Bernadette y María misma. Cada vez me contestaba con tanta paciencia y con amor por lo que estaba compartiendo. No toma mucho tiempo a alguien darse cuenta de que Mariela no solamente cree con todo su corazón, también comparte su fe con alegría sincera y real honestidad que uno sale mejor de ese considerado intercambio. Yo la describiría como un “conector”, une a las personas entre sí y más específicamente a Dios.

Dear Brothers,

Following some notices from members of the faithful that these “Catholic Priests” may be going around people’s home and after inquiry in regard to their person, I wish to notify you that a “Father Thomas Smith”, a “Father Simon” and/or a “Father Thomas Matthews” from India, are not authorized by Archbishop Wenski or his delegate to serve in any capacity the Roman Catholic faithful in the Archdiocese of Miami.

Therefore, please alert your parishioners that these priests should not be entering their homes nor be called upon by the faithful to perform any priestly ministry in the Archdiocese of Miami. Should they use their services, they do so with full knowledge of their status with the Archdiocese of Miami which is not responsible for their actions or negligence.
