Accommodating the Faithful
Sacred Heart makes every effort to accommodate and normalize the experience of Communion for the faithful, including those suffering from celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Therefore, if you wish to receive a low gluten host, please seek direction from Fr. Bob. You will be responsible for adding your host to the ciborium attached to the gold bowl and then receiving Communion from the pastor. If you have questions, please let us know ahead of time in order to normalize the experience of Communion. During Holy Week there will be extra low gluten hosts which will be consecrated for consumption.
Last weekend I mentioned several people in our Church are struggling with health issues and many of you asked for names. Here they are: Jan Moffenbeier (chemo therapy for cancer remission); Michael Rivelli (chemo therapy for cancer and neck surgery healing); Maria Rivelli awaiting an appt. with foot surgeon because of foot damage; Estelle Morley, Blaine Moore's daughter in law (lengthy recover from a horrible car accident resulting in 7 surgeries); Bill Rose (chemotherapy for leukemia and prostrate surgery as well as preparation for a bone marrow transplant); Marie Phillippi (hip replacement); Joni Chully who will be having a body scan soon as she had Moh’s surgery recently to remove a spot of skin cancer from her nose; And Kurt Bliese passed on forward on Sunday. Lots of work in the vineyard.
Also, I want to thank you for your cooperation this past year in living within the limits of the Covid/pandemic restrictions. You wore masks, signed up to attend Mass, allowed your temperature to be taken and used hand sanitizer. Thank you. And so many of you attended Mass on line. Some weekends the numbers were really high. God Bless You. We will continue to live stream as we know many of you still want to wait and not put yourself at risk at this time. And that's fine by me.
Also I read an article by an Albany, NY, priest who was nearing retirement. What he said really resonated with me: Fr. Ken Doyle says, "He became a priest because he wanted to help people get to Heaven. Not sure the job description needs more than that." And that had stayed in my heart as an affirmation for me that I'm on the right track as your pastor. I just want to help you get to heaven. So . . . How can I help you?
For now, we're not going to start printing a bulletin -- save a tree! But Lisa will continue to send out the FLASH during the week and she will place paper copies in the Church for those that would like a hard copy. We will continue this until we're fully open. If you don't have email, contact Shelley in the office and she will mail you one. She already does for about 12 parishioners.
Also we haven't received a great response on signing up for the various ministries. Please consider volunteering for a short period of time as a greeter, lector, Eucharistic Minister, sacristan, or if you're not sure where you're needed, just ask me.
Enjoy these warm summer months. Pray for our Firemen and Firewomen and our 1st Response Teams who are always fighting the good fight for us.

Attention Greeters and Ushers: We have new badges for you to wear; they are located in the back of church where the bulletins sit. Please remember to wear your badge and then return it back to the table after Mass. This is a great way for visitors to know who you are if they have any questions.
