October 15th: A Look at the Week Ahead

Are you looking for ways to get involved at Sacred Heart this week? We have plenty of opportunities for you with our various ministries and events. See below for this week’s highlights and consider joining us. You would be most welcome!

Sacred Heart: Commitment Weekend
This week in the mail, you received more information about our True North vision. Our goal is to fund this vision through our regular Sunday offertory program, and our hope is that in doing so, we can make these improvements as part of our normal parish operating expenses. We would forego our usual campaign for the Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) as well as the need for a capital campaign for the next several years. It would all be rolled up into your everyday giving, and your commitment allows us to better plan and be good stewards of your gifts.

So what do you do? We ask that each family prayerfully consider what you can financially contribute to help us realize our True North vision. Included in the mailing is a Commitment Card. Bring it with you to Mass next weekend and drop it in the offertory basket during our special collection.

Fall Festival – We Need Your Help!
From a dish to share to a helping hand, we need your help with this year’s Fall Festival. There are plenty of ways to give of your time.

Make (or buy) your favorite appetizer, main dish, side dish, or salad to share with your fellow parishioners. Sign up here.

Sign up for set up, clean up, parking, face painting, games, and more to help make our Fall Festival a success. Check out all the opportunities here.

Adult Sacramental Preparation is Starting
