Advent: a message of Peace, a glimpse of Hope, a promise of Joy and the coming of Love!

This weekend we enter into the Season of Advent.  Advent is the time when we prepare our hearts and our lives for the coming of our Lord at Christmas.  Advent is the time when we re-commit ourselves to "waiting in joyful hope for the coming of Our Savior, who is Christ the Lord."  We invite you to join us this season in of waiting and watching and hoping. In the darkness of our lives, let us light a candle for the Lord is coming!

Now thank we all our God!

When we think of all that we have received, let us pause and give thanks to our generous and loving God!  On Thanksgiving Day, Sacred Heart will gather at 9:00 am to celebrate a special Mass of thanksgiving.  We invite you to join us as we show our gratitude in prayer and song.  Everyone is also invited to bring the bread and wine meant for your thanksgiving dinner or a special blessing. 

We also want to encourage you to attend the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service on Wednesday, November 26 at the Summit church.  Please join with our friends and neighbors as we give thanks to God for the blessings we have received.

Assembling a choir of angels

Every Advent we pull together a children's choir to add a wonderful touch to our 5:00 pm Family Mass on Christmas Eve.  If your child (grades 1-6)  would like to be a part of this choir plan to attend the rehearsals which wil be held on Tuesday evenings from 5;45pm to 6:45pm in the church beginning December 2nd.   We are also forming a youth choir to help at that Mass as well.   if you have questions please talk to Whitt

We treasure... We celebrate... You are invited...

Stewardship is the faith-filled understanding that all we have and all that we are is a gift from God - our time, our talent, our money and even the gift of life itself. Psalm 111 asks, "How can we make a return for the goodness of God?"  We show our gratitude for these gifts by returning a portion of them back to God.  In the end, the sharing of our time with God, the giving of a portion of our treasure to support the needs of others and our church, the use of our talents to build up God's kingdom here in our midst are all expressions of our gratitude to the One who have given us everything.  Thank you, Lord!
