St. Madeleine Parish Prayer

O God of our hearts, we stand before You,

a growing community of faith.

Graciously hear our prayer, and bless us

on our journey.

We rely on Your constant guidance and

presence in all that we do.

Almighty and ever living God, You have

blessed each of us at St. Madeleine Church.

Make us aware, not so much of what we have given,

but what we have received,

and what we are called to share.

Give us Your grace to be generous and to sacrifice.

Unite our Parish O Lord as we

Preserve Our Heritage and Build For Our Future.

Amen

The devotion to Our Lady of La Leche has special significance in the Diocese of St. Augustine. From the time Spanish explorers established the town of St. Augustine in “La Florida” in 1565, they brought with them a particular devotion to the Blessed Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ. On Sept. 8, 1565, the first Mass of Thanksgiving was celebrated on these shores – it was the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Shortly after, a special devotion to Nuestra Señora de La Leche y Buen Parto – Our Lady of the Milk and Happy Delivery began. Since the early 1600s, this devotion has been kept alive by countless people of faith who travel to the oldest Marian shrine in the United States to seek the Blessed Mother’s intercession for a safe delivery of their child, for the gift of fertility, for those seeking to strengthen their faith and for many other special intentions. The Santa Fe Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche, grounded in the rich traditions of the shrine in St. Augustine, will provide people living in the western counties of the Diocese of St. Augustine and others traveling to Florida a place for pilgrimage and spiritual renewal. The name of the new shrine has rich meaning and historical significance to the people in the High Springs area. Santa Fe (meaning Holy Faith) is derived from an old Franciscan Mission named Santa Fe Toloca once located near the famous 75 mile Santa Fe River which crisscrosses the High Springs area. The original St. Madeleine Church that was located in the heart of High Springs was moved to the parish’s current site 35 years ago. The building that was once used as an Adoration Chapel by the parish has been renovated for the new Shrine. The new wood carved statue of Our Lady of La Leche is from the Demetz Art Studio in Ortisei, Italy. This beautiful 18-acre setting is perfect for silent prayer and contemplation and includes the Emmaus Walking Trail with many unique devotional opportunities for pilgrims. There is also a Marian Grotto (planned), outdoor Stations of the Cross, Memorial Garden and Cemetery on the property.

Flowers for the Altar: The flower chart is located on the ushers closet door in the main church. If you would like to place flowers on the altar for a loved one or a special intention, write it on the flower chart. Please include who is donating the flowers on the chart. You will be responsible to call the florist.

Intentions for Loved Ones: If you would like to have a Mass said for your loved one, please call or e-mail the church office. If your intention is for a specific date, please call well in advance.

Gift Bearers: If you would like to be the gift bearer at a Mass that you are having said for someone, please notify the ushers at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of Mass. Since there are three gifts to be presented to the celebrant of the Mass, we may also have anyone who has placed flowers at the altar for that weekend in the procession. Please understand that once the ushers have chosen those to bring the gifts to the celebrant, they will not be asked to sit back, so as not to hurt any one's feelings.

Bulletin Patron: If you would like to become a bulletin patron or are interested in advertising in our bulletin, please call Jane Koller or the church office.
