Sacred Heart Christmas Sharing Tree
This year Sacred Heart will offer our parishioners a way to make Christmas merry for those families in need. We will place a Sharing Tree in the back of the church the weekend of November 23/24, by the confessional. On this tree we will place Christmas Gift Wish Ornaments. On each ornament we will write the sex, age, size and gift wish requested. You may take one or more of these tags, purchase and wrap the gift and return it to the parish office with the ornament tag attached by December 12th (this will allow time for sorting of the gifts and for families to pick up their gifts before December 21st). Each gift should be valued at no more than $25.00.
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.
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.

Year of Faith
Year of Faith:
Pope Benedict XVI proclaimed the Year of Faith from October 11, 2012 to November 24, 2013.
The liturgical year from last First Sunday of Advent to the Last Sunday of the Year, the Feast of Christ the King.
We are called to ask the question: What is faith and why does it matter?
To have Faith means to have trust in a Personal and loving God who cares for us more than we could ask or imagine. To have faith means that we can let go of our way and our timing and believe that God can make things work out for the good. Jesus often said to the people he encountered that your faith has saved you. Healing and health come from our relationship with God.
How does this faith change our lives?
Pope Francis says that faith gives us the trust and patience to wait for God’s timing. Patience is the gift from God that helps us to deal more kindly with each other.
During the year of Faith we pray and study in order that we might be more free from our fears and become more joyful and patient in our service of God’s Kingdom.
