CONSTRUCTION UPDATES


Convent/Renewal CenterGoals & vision

 Work is progressing on the Renewal Center renovation and we now expect to occupy the building at the end of July, with the official dedication by Archbishop Wenski on September 17. On that day, the building will be officially rechristened “The Klaus Murphy Center”, in honor of two former parishioners whose selfless dedication to others helped make this project possible. 

Fred Klaus and Harold Murphy established a foundation that provides financial support to organization’s whose efforts assist “the poor and needy of Key West, Florida”.  Over the years, this foundation has provided millions of dollars in support of our service efforts to Star the Sea Outreach Mission, The Basilica School , St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen,  and a leadership gift of $750,000 towards this renovation.  With their support, and the support of so many other parishioners, the Klaus Murphy Center will enable us to continue a 165 year tradition of service to our community.

 Cemetery

DSC_2508 copy

 In 1846, the City of Key West dedicated one third of the City Cemetery to the Catholic Community of Key West. Though there was not a parish or a church established at that time, there was evidence of a Catholic Community. Unfortunately, we have run out of plots in this section.

Five years ago, we began to study areas in which we could build niches for cremains and crypts for caskets for our faithful departed. The laws have changed considerably since 1846; therefore, the planning and the plotting has taken time. The Archdiocese of Miami’s Catholic Cemetery’s Office and lawyers have assisted us in determining ways of growth and building in the cemetery. Five possible plots have been identified. The first and the largest will be in what is known as the priests’ cemetery.

 There are four  priests from different orders who died and were buried before the Jesuits began their century long service to this parish. With permission from the Archbishop after investigating that their orders gave permission for this Parish’s care for their remains, the remains of these  four priests will be exhumed and then buried in the grotto cemetery along with their headstones near to where the thirteen Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary are now buried.  Hopefully, this will happen in this month. No one else shall be buried on this property.

These seventeen servants will be honored for their witness of selfless service at the Anniversary Mass of the Basilica Dedication on Tuesday, May 31 at 6:00 p.m.

 

 

CONVENT/RENEWAL CENTER UPDATES

Goals & vision
CHANGE IN TRAFFIC PATTERN OF WINDSOR LANE PARKING LOTS                                                                                                                                 

We have recently completed the striping of both parking lots off of Windsor Lane and there are now identifiable traffic patterns as well as no parking fire lanes. Please observe the directional arrows, veering right upon entering the back lot facing Sacred Heart Hall and following the pattern around the lot to exit properly. Please use caution when entering and exiting the lot.

Parking spaces have been striped to provide for greater order and the convenience of all. Please do not park outside of the parking spaces. Overflow parking may take place along the back wall facing Amelia Street. Please do not park in the traffic lanes. Handicap spaces will be marked within the month.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

PERPETUAL ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT DURING CONSTRUCTION

For the convenience of all adorers, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for all hours now takes place in the New Beginnings Chapel. The New Beginnings Chapel is the second building on the right as you enter through the gate of the back parking lot that is the entrance to the rear of the Basilica School and Sacred Heart Hall.

Again, thank you for your cooperation during this capital renovation project.

God bless you for your witness of faith.

RELOCATION OF RENEWAL CENTER MEETINGS & MINISTRIES

As of Friday, August 14th 2015, all prayer, faith formation, and ministerial groups have vacated the Renewal Center to make way for the renovation of the Convent/Renewal Center.

Please see the menu tabs along the top of this page to locate where your particular group is now meeting

OTHER ACCOMMODATIONS:
  • The Sisters of the Holy Spirit have also vacated the Convent and have been accommodated by a generous family in their Key Haven home. 
  • Hansen and Bringle Cabinets will be disassembling and storing the curio cabinets.  Their contents along with photographs will be stored in a climate controlled storage facility for safe keeping. Other pictures will be displayed throughout the Basilica School where students, faculty and visitors may enjoy them. The furniture, fixtures and equipment have been placed in a s storage container located near The Sacred Heart Hall.

 

May we give thanks to God for the positive collaboration of parishioners in preparation for this much needed renovation project.

jubilee-page-header

 

Pope Francis began his pontificate by inviting us to reflect on “the Lord’s most powerful message: mercy.” In his first homily he said: “It is not easy to entrust oneself to God’s mercy, because it is like an abyss beyond our comprehension. But we must! ” (Homily St. Anna, March 2013)

With the Declaration of this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis invites us to “gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father’s action in our lives.” The mercy of God is not an abstract idea, but a concrete reality with which he reveals his love as that of a father or a mother, moved to the very depths out of love for their child. (Misericordiae Vultus, “The Face of Mercy”)

Everyone is encouraged in this Year of Mercy to become effective witnesses to the saving grace of Jesus Christ in their lives by performing acts of forgiveness, penance, and mercy. Throughout this Holy Year, various programs and activities will be available to aid people of God to more fully experience and share the graces of the special Year of Mercy. 

All the faithful are encouraged to participate in this extraordinary year to the fullest extent of their ability.

THE HOLY DOOR OF MERCY 

 

This Jubilee observance is unique in that Pope Francis has instructed that Doors of Mercy be designated not only in the Major Basilicas in Rome but in every diocese around the world, in all cathedral churches and major shrines.

The rite of opening the Holy Door is intended to symbolically illustrate the idea that the Church’s faithful are offered an “extraordinary path” toward salvation during the time of Jubilee. However, we must remember that merely walking through this Holy Door will not grant one forgiveness or divine blessings! It has to be accompanied by an inner desire for conversion of one’s heart and a thirst for God’s intervention.

To mark the start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, churches around the world — including six in the Archdiocese of Miami — opened a Holy Door on the third Sunday of Advent — five days after the opening of the Holy Door in Rome.  Archbishop Thomas Wenski opened the Holy Door of the Cathedral of St. Mary in Miami on December 13th at 10:00 AM. The Holy Door here at the Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea, opened on the same Sunday in Advent, symbolizes our passage or transition into a special year of evangelization and prayer. We invite everyone passing through the Basilica’s Door to join us on that journey.

Laudato Si’: On Care For Our Common Home

Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si’) is the new appeal from Pope Francis addressed to “every person living on this planet” for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. Pope Francis calls the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path. This encyclical is written with both hope and resolve, looking to our common future with candor and humility.
