February Movies

Sunday, February 18, 3:00PM: “Reluctant Saint (St. Joseph of Cupertino)” (1962 / NR / 1 hour 45 minutes)

Joseph of Cupertino, a simple young man thought by many in his village to be an idiot, is pressured to enter a monastery. He does so, and surprises everyone by passing the entrance exam to study for the priesthood. But this is only the first of many surprises from the man who would become Saint Joseph Cupertino. Movie is appropriate and fun for all ages!

Sunday, February 18, 4:45PM: “Bakhita - From Slave to Saint” (NR / 3 hourss 17 minutes)

Born in a village in Sudan, Bakhita was kidnapped by slavers, often beaten and abused, and later sold to Federico Marin, a Venetian merchant, Bakhita then came to Italy and became the nanny servant of Federico's daughter, Aurora, who had lost her mother at birth. She is treated as an outcast by the peasants and the other servants due to her black skin and African background, but Bakhita is kind and generous to others. Bakhita gradually comes closer to God with the help of the kind village priest, and embraces the Catholic faith. Movies is in Italian with English subtitles. Appropriate for teens and up.

Nicaragua Mission Trip Information Meeting * Sunday, February 18

Thanks to the generosity of Fr. Libor, the Men’s Club, Knights of Columbus, and the parishioners from Ss. Cyril and Methodius, we will be returning to Nicaragua in 2018. We will again be repairing roofs, painting, and building up Paul Rush's Guadalupe Garden's Mission Center, in San Marcos. Some of us will be visiting successful Nicaraguan ministries, feeding neighborhood children, visiting the only women’s drug rehabilitation center in Nicaragua, and visiting families in our door-to-door evangelization.

Fr. Robert Rindos (the chaplain for Keiser University) will oversee our early morning Holy Hours and Holy Masses, and hear confessions before each Holy Mass, so it will seem as if we never left Ss. Cyril and Methodius. Each evening will end with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and group recollection of the day among our Nicaraguan brothers and sisters.

Members of Ss. Cyril and Methodius parish need to know that they will stand prominently in our prayers on the mission. In fact, none of our missions to Nicaragua could have happened without the generous support of so many parishioners.

We will have a meeting for those interested in the 2018 trip on February 18 after the 9:30AM Holy Mass, in Room #117. Our fundraising has already begun, THANKS to the Men’s Club and their Lenten Fish Fries.

Blood Drive * Tuesday, March 27

Our next Blood Drive is during Holy Week on Tuesday, March 27. The Blood Drive will take place from 1:00PM-6:45PM.


I Gave my Blood, Christ Gave His.

I Gave a Pint, He Gave All.

The Needle is Sharp and Small,

The Nails were Large and Blunt.

The Bed is Soft and Restful,

The Cross was Rough and Painful.

The Nurses are Kind and Gentle,

The Soldiers were Cruel and Tough.

Humanity Applauds my Sacrifice,

The Crowds He Passed Reviled Him.

My Blood is O Positive, His is Positively for All.

Mine will Prolong Life for Awhile, His Will Save Forever!
