Dear Sacred Heart Families, We are beginning to plan for our religious education program that will begin in the fall. All children are encouraged to be part of our religious education program. Second grade children planning on receiving their First Eucharist and high school students planning on making their Confirmation are required to attend classes.
Classes will be focused on deepening and enjoying our Catholic Faith. These classes will be filled with a variety of age appropriate activities. These lessons will be designed for children to experience their Catholic Faith. Children will have the opportunity to bake, create art projects, volunteer in the community, and go on field tirps to local Catholic sites. Please contact Priscilla Holman at email@example.com or 503-698-7820.
Live the Liturgy - Inspiration for the week
As human beings, we desire to find happiness. This desire is so strong that we often go to great lengths to discover and obtain it. Unfortunately, our search sometimes brings us to the wrong places. We mistakenly think that money, certain possessions, social status, popularity, and even power and control can satisfy the longing that exists in our hearts. Time and again, one after another, these things come up empty and we find ourselves with the same unfulfilled longing gnawing at us deep within. It is only the kingdom of God that can satisfy our desire and that ache. We are made and hardwired for this. When we discover it, we know that we have found something very special--a pearl of great price. Then, everything comes together and is put in proper order: our relationship with God, others, ourselves, and even the universe in which we live.
