Sacred Heart Capital Campaign
Thank you for all your help these past few months. However, we need you more than ever! We are so very close to our $1.7 million goal to fund our new fellowship hall. The hall will be used by our parish and the community. It will serve as a meeting place and a reception space for all. It will come equipped with a full commercial kitchen.
Here's how you can help. Keep praying. All have been so generous. We've received the challenge from our major donor of another $25,000 if we at Sacred Heart can match it by December 31, 2017. We did within 3 weeks. We so badly want this to happen!
Can you help us meet our goal and close the $118,000 gap?
Recently Fr. Bob appealed to all those who have pledged and asked if we could extend our pledges for one more year. For example, Father pledged $3000 over a 5 year period. He is now going to extend his pledge for one more year and add another $600 to his original pledge. Can you/will you join him? Any pledge can be spread out over a 5 year period. Or, can you make a one time donation to our building fund? Can you help us meet our $1.7 million goal?
If the Holy Spirit moves you, please donate in person, through the parish office, or by using the building fund yellow envelope located in the pew to make an initial pledge or extend your original pledge.
To donate via our secure online vendor please visit the Sacred Heart website
"Give page" and follow the link to the building fund donation:
Thank you for your help! You are good. God is good.

Dear Sacred Heart Parish Community,
Thank you for your generous donation to St. Vincent Mission for ministry to those in need in eastern Kentucky.
We were able to purchase Thanksgiving dinners for several families and the Christmas donations are continuing to come in. We are currently stocking the Christmas store with donations in preparation for the Christmas program on Dec. 11th, 12th and 13th. Our Food Pantry continues to provide assistance to around 70 families per month. Many families are receiving assistance through our emergency assistance program to keep their electric on during this cold weather season.
This would not be possible without the help of our wonderful donors and volunteers. Thanks again for your partnership in helping families in poverty in eastern Kentucky, move forward to success.
Christ’s Service, Erin Bottomlee

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.
