Welcome from Fr. Gregory Leif

Welcome to the Church of Sacred Heart website. Sacred Heart is a Roman Catholic Christian Community seeking to serve the Kingdom of God. We believe that the love relationship with God is a life long journey. From the time that children are of school age we offer free tuition in the grade school, opportunities and experiences in junior and senior high and ongoing learning and prayer sessions for men and women of all ages. We believe that every person is given time talent and treasure for the sake of a purpose greater than just themselves. We find that it is also true that we can accomplish more together than alone. As we come together in the Eucharist and Service we come to better understand the calling that we have received from our God. To serve God’s kingdom gives meaning to one’s life.

 

The Annual November Food Drive

The annual November Food Drives began October 28/29 and continues through November 25/26.  This is our month to help stock the Waseca County Food Shelf to help those in need.  Reminder, non perishable food items and monetary donations are both accepted.  Make this a part of you answer to the Pope's call to share the journey with those in need.

Update on Sacred Heart Education Endowment Fund

In January of this year, a Named Fund Policy within the Sacred Heart Education Endowment Fund was established.  A Named Fund begins with a minimum starting balance of $10,000.  Contributions can be made to any Named Fund by the original donor(s) or others.

The Sacred Heart Education Endowment Fund is built from both small and large contributions.  These come from cash donations, memorials, bequest, insurance policies, real estate, investments, and now a Named Fund.  Some families name the endowment for memorials of their loved one.

All contributions are invested and only the annual earnings are given to the parish each year to help with the increasing cost of our educational needs.  Your tax deductible gifts are perpetual.  They continue to give year after year.

Since 1995, the fund has gifted over $1.1 million to our Parish Catholic Education programs  Today we have approximately 2 million dollars in the endowment fund, thanks to the generosity of many people!  An endowment DOES WORK.

When doing your financial or estate planning, please remember the Sacred Heart Education Endowment Fund.

THANK YOU for your continued support.  It is appreciated!

The total project cost will be $206,096.00. 

Earn Cash for Sacred Heart School

Help Sacred Heart School Earn Cash

SHOPAROO…Several staff members, Board of Education members, and I have been using a completely hassle-free fundraiser called Shoparoo to earn money for Sacred Heart School and we would love for you to join.  Shoparoo is a free mobile app that lets you earn cash donations for your school just by taking pictures of your shopping receipts. It’s that easy and just takes a few seconds. The best part is that it doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy-every receipt counts! There are schools earning hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars a year through Shoparoo, and we want ours to be one of them. Plus, if you use this referral code, we’ll both earn extra donations for your first receipt: vask9203. Join me in fundraising today! Download the free app at: http://www.shoparoo.com/r/vask9203.

ITEMS TO COLLECT…Sacred Heart School collects used old cell phones as a recycling project. This recycling program is entitled Trash to Cash. We are eager to make this an easy source of funds without selling anything. We need your help to make this profitable for us. Items may be dropped off at the school office for recycling. Please remember all fund raising items: Target’s 1% credit card purchases; Campbell’s Soup Labels; Box Tops for Education; Donuts to Dough; Aluminum Cans; Milk Moola; and Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald’s House. If you have questions on any of these, please call the school.

Parish Members in the Military

Let us keep all of those in service to our country in prayer.  It is because of men and women like that we have the freedoms we have.  Let us take time to pray for their safety.
