Please join your fellow parishioners on Sunday October 3rd. for an all parish assembly in the Activity Building.  There will be an ice cream social starting at 2:15 along with ample opportunity to gather information from the various Sacred Heart Commissions.  Discover what these ministries are doing both for our parish and for the community.  See if any of them offer you an opportunity to use your time and talent to help further their cause.  Additionally, by visiting at least three of the commissions you will be eligible for a $100 cash prize drawing.  There will also be a 50/50 raffle.

The formal presentation is scheduled from 3:00-4:30.  Msgr. Greg along with other parish council members will be presenting information regarding a variety of activities impacting on Sacred Heart.  These include a review of our financial position, an update on the columbarium and memorial garden, information regarding renovations of the activity building and the associated fund raising efforts, and a description of the Better Together program.  There will also be ample time for questions and answers.

Remember:  Along with Msgr. Greg as our religious leader, Sacred Heart is really about all of us who are connected to the Parish.  This assembly offers an opportunity for all parishioners to come together as a community to learn about and discuss those aspects that impact Sacred Heart.  It also offers an important chance to provide input and feedback to church leaders as decisions are made regarding our future. 

Please make plans to join us for this timely and informative program.
