Grapevine is the monthly online newsletter of the Diocese of Southeast Florida. A new issue is posted on the first of each month, but because it's a source of time-sensitive information, it is often updated during the month, so you'll want to come back ot it occasionally during the month for the latest on coming events throughout the diocese.
