Would you and your family like to have the VOCATION CROSS into your home for a week to pray each day for VOCATIONS? If so please take a minute and sign-up in the back of the church to take the cross for a week. This is a simple ministry that involves all in a household -- even if you're by yourself. The Holy Spirit is always with you.
If you visit our Church grounds and take a tour, you will see our beautiful Church, our office building (the former rectory built in 1917), and here you may go downstairs to see our St. Vincent de Paul Society food pantry and our "Social Hall." Now, please contain your laughter. Yes, that basement space that we share with SVDP, our Religious Education Program, coffee and donuts and other social events is all we have. When numbers allow us, we will have funeral receptions, parish social gatherings and dinners. This area seats about 60 people somewhat comfortably. So in 2014, after a Master Plan was worked through with all the parishioners, it was unequivocally decided the Parish needed a hall. The aging original hall/gym had been torn down in 2005. It was time! So, in typical Sacred Heart fashion many minds and hands and hearts began to design, budget, and raise money. You can read the history in the other documents posted. Just know, it's a work in progress, and we welcome any and all support. God Bless You!
