Living the Eucharist – small groups
Lent is the perfect time to do some extra spiritual practice. Joining a Living the Eucharist small group will provide an opportunity to learn more about the Eucharist and to study the Gospel for each Sunday in Lent. You can still join a group. If you are interested or have questions, contact Sister Ricarda at 456-6256 or email@example.com.
Lenten Soup and Bread Supper
Presentations will begin next Monday, March 10th at 6:15PM in the Auditorium. Father Simmons will be our first presenter.
It’s on Sunday, March 9th, 2014 from 11AM to 6PM in the auditorium.
We hope to see you all there!
CRS Rice Bowl
Your family is invited to pick up a Rice bowl packet (located at the entrances of the church) and use this fun and easy resource to deepen your family’s Lenten experience and make a difference in the lives of the poor. Rice Bowls also will be distributed to the children in our religious education program.
Parish Council Report
For the past year, members of Parish Council have been focusing a great deal on ways to make our already wonderful Parish, even better. We’ve listed areas where we think we could tweak or improve things that we do and have chosen three to begin with. They are,
1) finding ways to more effectively include the young people of our Parish family and bring back a vibrant YOUTH GROUP,
2) increase our OUTREACH both within the Parish it self as well as extending our help and welcome to those not already in our pews. This is a great way for us to actively live out what Fr. Mark has been preaching about the past few weeks, and
3) how to improve our Sacred Heart FAMILY/FAITH COMMUNITY, beginning with improving our communication within our Parish and to those looking to learn about us.
We’ve had many great ideas already, and you will be finding information about them both in the bulletin and here on our Web Site, but we also want to hear your thoughts. To share your ideas, or if you are interested in helping in any of these areas, please just find one of us at Mass and let us know. If you don’t know who we are, there are photos at the church entrances and also on here our Web Site, or you can contact me, Lisa Priestap, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

Don’t Forget Your Gift Certificates!
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.
If you are moving or changing your phone number or email address, please let the parish office know. You can do this by mailing a note, phoning, emailing or dropping a note in the collection basket. To our “snow birds” you too need to let us know when you are leaving and when you are returning so that we can hold your mailings. If you are going to a nursing home or assisted living center or are in the hospital, call so we can keep our records updated and we can visit. We depend on our parishioners to help keep our records current. Thank you for your help. Any questions, call Mary Ann at 456-6256.
