First Sunday of Advent - November 29, 2015
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.

2015 Archbishop's Charity And Development Drive

The Scriptures are unambiguous about God's concern for the poor. Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in our land (Deut. 14:11;Isa.58:6-12). Jesus showed a preferential option for the por. As the example of the saints has taught us, in loving and serving the poor, we too love and serve Jesus Himself.
ABCD is our one opportunity during the year to reach out in support of all of the people of God beyond the boundary of our parish. Through the ABCD, we follow the example of Christ to serve our brothers and sisters here in the Archdiocese of Miami. Jesus Christ is the common thread that binds us all. We are one.
We need you. You are making the good works of the local Church here in south Florida possible. Together, we are making a difference and impacting the lives of those in need. Please be as generous as possible in your response to the ABCD. Thank you for uniting with us to be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.
