The schedule for Monday, March 23rd
6:15PM— Soup and Bread Supper (Auditorium)
The Passover (Exodus 7-15) and its celebration are central to the history of Judaism and Christianity. The ritual of Passover allows each generation of Jews to relive their history through remembering how they were freed from slavery in Egypt. Jews and Christians share the Passover experience of a people enslaved and then redeemed by God’s saving action. As Christians we remember how Jesus saved us and won our freedom through his death on the cross and his resurrection. The Seder celebration helps us to ritualize the Passover event by remembering God’s saving power.We will begin at 6:15 with the Seder followed by our soup supper. Please make a reservation with Sister Ricarda (456-6256) if you plan on coming to the Seder.
Washing of Feet – Holy Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm Mass
Foot Washing is a powerful symbol of our identity as a servant people. It calls for humility on the part of those who do it and those who allow it to be done. Possibly you have witnessed this action on Holy Thursday and wondered how you could be a part of it. This is an invitation that if you would like to have your feet washed on Holy Thursday to let us know. If you are interested, or have any questions, please call Rebecca Flynn at the rectory at 456-6256.
Knights of Columbus Sacred Heart Council will sponsor their eleventh annual “Knight Out”, formerly Casino Night, on Saturday April 11th, 2015 from 6pm to 11pm in the Sacred Heart Auditorium.Tickets are $10 per person. Ticket price includes one admission for free food and drinks, $800 cash prize and drawings all night long.
This is the KofC major fund raiser so please join us for an evening of fun, games and friendship. Pick up your envelopes with tickets in the back of the church after mass today. Additional tickets will also be available at Sacred Heart Rectory by calling 456-6256.Operation Rice Bowl
Fourth Week of Lent – Jesus Foretells His Death and Subsequent Glorification
In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that judgment, repentance, and dying to sin are necessary before we can truly know the joy of God’s mercy, forgiveness, and new life in Christ. Jesus put it this way: “ if you love your life, you must let it go… If you want to serve me, you must follow me and do what I do….”
As we continue our Operation Rice Bowl journey, let us remember in prayer that human beings are not only sacred, but also social. How we participate in our family and community, from our daily actions to our policy decisions, affects each and every person. May our fasting keep us mindful of the families and communities that are hungry. May our almsgiving assist CRS Mother and Child Health projects that provide basic health and nutrition services.
