Little Flower is a Special Place,
And we hope you can feel the family atmosphere when you come and worship with us! If you’d like to make Little Flower Parish your spiritual home by registering as a parishioner, please call the Parish Office at (251) 478-3381, or stop by the Office Monday through Friday between 9am and 5pm!
There are so many ways to live your Catholic faith with us, and below is a sample of all of the great ways you can get involved in our Parish (listed in alphabetical order):
Altar servers assist the Priest in the celebration of the Mass. Those interested, both boys and girls, should contact Sr. Mary Joyce to get on the schedule.
Sr. Mary Joyce Bringer, CSJ
The Altar Society is composed of members who work in the background to ensure that the parish sanctuary is clean and neat, and that all necessary preparations are made for Masses, special liturgies, and celebrations. Members clean the sanctuary, wash altar linens, laundry altar servers’ albs, and perform other jobs that may arise.
catholic round table
Catholic Round Table is a weekly discussion that features a different topic and a different facilitator each meeting. See the events page for more information, or contact Betty below.
Young children participate in Children’s Liturgy during the 9:30am Mass each Sunday.
This group organizes Thanksgiving Baskets and the Christmas Angel Tree to help those parishioners that need extra help during the holidays, including our beloved members confined to their home or those in a Nursing Home. We also help collect money and needed supplies for the different ministries in our area, such as Catholic Social Services, the food pantry, 2 B Crisis Pregnancy Center, winter coats for the needy, pro-life work, and many other service projects!
This season we have two soccer and two volleyball teams currently competing as well as basketball. Sports are open to students grades 2 through 8 who are either enrolled in our Parish School, or participate in Religious Education. For more information, contact our Athletic Director, Brandi Lindsey, below.
Discernment (Priesthood and religious life)
All of us are called to holiness, to be Saints, and thereby to be with God forever in Heaven—and God calls us to a specific vocation in order to attain Sainthood. While many are called to the vocation of Marriage, there are those in our Parish who will be called to the Priesthood, or even Religious Life. If you feel that God may be calling you, take the next step and follow the link below to the vocations page for the Archdiocese of Mobile —and of course, talk to your Pastor!
