Interested in becoming a Catholic?… Or know someone who is?
The RCIA process is for any adult who has never been baptized, or has been baptized in another Christian community and wishes to become a member of the Roman Catholic Church. It is also for those who have been baptized Catholic but have had no (or very little religious education) and have not celebrated Eucharist or Confirmation and desire to celebrate those Sacraments.
For further information, call either Fr. O’Hern or Rebecca Flynn at the rectory, 456-6256.
A Family Perspective
The mother in Sunday’s gospel persisted, even when she was ignored and insulted. She would do whatever was necessary to bring relief to her child. Parenting is more than bringing life into the world; it is also about sacrificing daily for your children.
Life Line Screening
Sacred Heart Church is pleased to offer a preventive health event. Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, will host their affordable, non-invasive and painless health screenings on 9/3/2014.
Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis.
Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount). All five screening take 60-90 minutes to complete. In order to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129, please call 1-888-653-6441 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com/community-partners.
“Vocation Cross” Program
Our parish has begun the “Vocation Cross” program. This is an opportunity for families to pray daily for vocations to the religious life and priesthood in their homes.
Is your family interested in participating? If so, please call Rebecca Flynn at the rectory, 456-6256.
The Vocation Cross will be presented at the end of Mass. Along with the cross, suggested prayers will be given. After two weeks, the family who takes the cross home returns the cross to the Church and another family will have the opportunity to take the cross home. This program will be on-going.
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.
