Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Cemetery

The seventh Corporal Work of Mercy teaches us to bury the deceased with dignity. The Church has consecrated our Catholic Cemeteries to ensure that we have the appropriate place to fulfill this teaching. We have invited representatives from Catholic Cemeteries Family Service program to visit us on May 3 and 4 2014. The counselors will have information available to help you make your own decisions.

We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about advance planning in a Catholic Cemetery.

We invite you to visit Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Cemetery online at www.catholiccemeteriesmiami.org and view their new video.

Sexting

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each week the Archdiocese of Miami's Safe Environment Office will offer snipets from Virtus bulletins shared in the last year. Virtus training is a child sex abuse awareness and prevention program that begins with a live training session and continues with monthly bulletins, which are required of all clergy, employees and volunteers of the Archdiocese of Miami.

Sexting is the sending or receiving of sexually-explicit or sexually-suggestive images or video via cell-phone. Instances of sexting depict a continuum of intentions, which define the legal and policy issues of the act. These include: exploring sexuality as part of the development of teens, harassment of teens by other teens, exploitation by teens in retaliation for perceived slights, manipulation of teens by adults for sexual gratification. Well-defined policies and procedures are essential when effectively dealing with sexting.
