You may have noticed a new yellow envelope (envelope color will be changing to green starting in your next envelope packet) in your parishioner envelope packet that you received in the mail from Our Sunday Visitor that is named BUILDING MAINTENANCE FUND. Donations collected in this envelope will be used when needed for the upkeep and repairs of all the buildings and grounds at Sacred Heart. This collection will be taken once every two months.
This BUILDING MAINTENANCE FUND is different from your donation towards the new parish hall.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
The new schedule has been posted on the website and sent by email to those scheduled volunteers. Please remember that you are responsible for finding your own substitute if you are unable to serve as scheduled. Please contact Shelly in the parish office if you have questions.
