"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit."                                               Ephesians 2:19-22

Fr. Gilbert Medina appointed new pastor of All Souls...

     On Saturday, August 23, over 400 congregants at All Souls were witness to a very special service. John Noonan, bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orlando presided at the installation Mass of our new pastor of All Souls Catholic Church, Father Gilbert Medina. Father Medina was appointed the new pastor of All Souls earlier in the month and comes to the 127 year-old parish from St. Mary of the Lakes, Eustis.

     An avid history buff, the 53 year-old priest recently portrayed Juan Ponce DeLeon at re-enactment festivities in St. Augustine commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Spanish explorer’s coming to “La Florida” from Puerto Rico. In May, Rev. Medina completed the 500 mile walk known as The Way of St. James pilgrimage, or el Camino de Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain.


     The parish Council of Catholic Women hosted a reception for our new shepherd after the Saturday installation Mass.


The weekly homily...

is our offering to those who may have missed Mass over the weekend due to a variety of reasons: we are able to reach our vacationing members, young adults away at college or those out of state or overseas. It is also a way of reaching our homebound or ill members and evangelization and outreach to inactive Catholics.

The Catholic understanding of evangelization includes a number of related elements: the renewal of the person, giving witness to Christ, proclamation of the gospel, acceptance of the gospel message and entering into the community of faith—the Church, growing as a disciple, and sharing our faith with others.

Our parish, her priests and homebound ministers want to stay connected with those parishioners who are not able to join us at Mass due to illness or physical/mental incapacities. Hospital or home visits help ensure our homebound members know they are not forgotten. Our Homebound ministers have the privilege of taking our Lord, present in the Eucharist to those homebound members of our church, letting them know they are loved and being prayed for. (If you or someone you know would like a visit from one of our priests or Eucharistic Ministers for the sacraments, please contact the parish office at 407.322.3795.)  Our weekly homily is another way for these individuals to feel connected to their parish, despite location.

Almost every Catholic who goes to Mass regularly knows one or more inactive Catholics. The difference between the two is that inactive Catholics do not practice their faith. They do not go to Mass as often, may not be registered in a parish, and are not involved in serving in parish ministries.

The fact that a Catholic is not active in a parish does not mean that he or she does not have faith. Some inactive Catholics are more spiritually-minded than those who go to Mass every Sunday. They believe, but do not belong.

It is our hope that by viewing the weekly homily you will not only get a flavor for the wonderful, caring priests of All Souls but that you will find them to be a source of inspiration and reflection. Please encourage those you know to view our weekly homily - especially those inactive Catholics whom we welcome home with open arms and our homebound members.
