Pastoral Council PresidentThe Communion of Saints..
The month of November is when we, as Roman Catholics, traditionally remember the Dead. One of the beliefs of the Church is in the Communion of Saints. Throughout this month we commemorate this belief.
We are member of the “Communion of Saints”. We ask the intercession of those (All the Saints) who live now in the Glory of God…We remember to pray for All the Faithful Departed. Found at the Baptismal font is our Book of Names. During the month of November, please inscribe the names of loved ones who have been called home to God and whom you wish our parish to remember in our prayers. Throughout this month, the names will be kept in prayer. By remembering those who have died, we recall how much a part of our lives these “saints” still are, and we reaffirm our belief that Jesus died for us and because of His death we will all be reunited with our loved ones someday.
Pre Baptismal Class
A Pre Baptismal Class for parents anticipating the birth or baptism of their child will be offered on Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 at 7PM in the Rectory. All parents are expected to attend this class before their child is baptized. Sponsors may also attend. Please call Mary Ann at the parish office, 456-6256,ext. 22 to make your reservation.
Light Up For Christ.
It’s that time again… Sacred Heart Knights of Council 11818 will host our annual “Light up for Christ ” ceremony on Sunday, December 6th, 2015 at 6PM. This year ’s festivities will start, as always, with prayer, song, and the lighting of the tree and parish nativity scene.
Following this brief ceremony, all are invited to the auditorium for food and fellowship. The food will consist of chili, nachos/cheese, desserts and a variety of refreshments. This year there will again be door prizes for the families along with treats and a number of prizes for the children. Come and enjoy the evening with us.
This celebration is not solely for Sacred Heart Parishioners, so please feel free to bring along your family and friends. Also, for any of you that have purchased tickets for this year’s snow blower, the winning ticket will be drawn that evening. Set aside the hustle and bustle of the holiday to remember that “Christ is the reason for the season”!
Fr. Mark’s Homilies
Do you remember what you heard in last Sunday’s homily? Did you even get to hear the whole thing? Maybe your mind wandered. Maybe you were worrying about something. Maybe you were praying about something.
Now you have the chance to listen again — on your own schedule — by visiting Fr. Mark’s homilies page.
When we are young, our parents “tell us about Jesus” and we believe what our parents believe. At some point we must leave our parents faith and ask Pilate’s question: “Are you the King?” Pilate is just asking these questions on our behalf.
Don’t Forget Your Gift Certificates.
It’s November: time for fall parties, tailgating, football games and hopefully our gift cards… Pick them up after Mass on the weekends, or stop by the Parish office during the week and purchase a few. The more you buy the more you help our Parish.
