Exciting News! The next 50/50 raffle will take place after each of the Masses on  January 25-26 and again on February 1-2.   Tickets will also be available in the parish office. They are still $5.00 each or six for $25.00. All parishioners, family, friends and others are eligible to participate.

As before, all proceeds from the raffle will be split equally between the winner and Sacred Heart. Funds allocated to Sacred Heart will be designated for the purpose of updates/maintenance to the parish campus.

The previous raffles have been very successful. Your participation will continue to show great support for Sacred Heart while at the same time offer an opportunity for someone (maybe you) to win a valuable prize.

Please see any of the parish council members if you have any questions.

Parish Assembly
January 26
3 p.m. in the Activity Building

 

There will be a parish wide assembly on Sunday January 26th. at 3:00 p.m. in the activity building. The main purpose of the assembly will be to provide available information to everyone regarding the columbarium, memorial garden and updates/maintenance to the activity building. This will include an identification and discussion of the “next steps” and what will be required to meet future goals of Sacred Heart. There will also be time allotted to receive feedback from parishioners and a question and answer period.

Please plan to attend this very important parish assembly. It will be a great way to find out “what’s going on at Sacred Heart” as well as an opportunity to have any questions answered by parish leaders.

 

Pentecost Video

True to those gathered at the first Pentecost, we are of African, American, Asian, European, Philippine and Indian descent, speaking at least 15 languages among us! Seekers, our journeys here have taken many paths. We are native born, refugees fleeing war, immigrants looking for a better life. We are students, young couples with babies and school-aged children, working stiffs, grandparents, and retirees with time and energy to share.

At first glance, we don’t appear to belong together. Our educational backgrounds, world views, appearances and styles of dress are different. Some of us are laborers while others are in professional roles. We are a motley-looking crew, a fitting image of the Universal Church!

Look deeper. See beyond the world to accept that love is our common language. Just as those gathered at the first Pentecost, we reach out to each other with one message of love in many languages. We are a Christian community building households of faith.

We have sought, received and accepted “the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17)

Filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we are a people of hope. We share each other’s trials and walk together in faith.

True to His Word, we have asked, sought, knocked and found the door open. (Luke 11:9-10) Join us. We welcome you with open arms.

And so I pray: Dear Lord, open the eyes and hearts of those blind to your love. Bring them to our open door.
