OK, in order to get these notes in, in time, I had to be writing them from 80+ degrees in sunny Florida, but just shows that my heart is always with my parish back home. Ahem, ahem.LOL. And I’m so sorry to have missed the big snow storm! Do I have to go to Confession for that comment?Maybe.Lent is so close, around the corner, that I hope the offering that our Adult Faith Formation Committee has planned for you will be something more than the usual small number will take advantage of by attending.It is really a small commitment. We have some very prominent ND professors and one retired professor from Vanderbilt, who are doing the three presentations, three weeks in a row.Please, put the evenings on your calendars and make it one of those extras you do for your own spiritual good health for this year’s Lenten Season.Fr.
The St. Jude Rosary Sodality has taken on the ministry of creating Prayer Blankets.
If you wish to make a monetary donation to help with the cost of materials, just place an envelope with your donation marked PRAYER BLANKET in the collection basket or drop it off at the Parish Office. This is an ongoing ministry, so your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Thank you and God bless you! ~ The St. Jude Rosary Sodality
The Sacred Heart Altar and Rosary Sodality will be collecting new and/or gently used items for the Smile Again Family Project in Uganda. Our own Emily and Abe Rusch will be going to Uganda on Wednesday, March 4th to help with the building of a new dormitory for single moms and their babies and they will take our donations with them.
Items needed are clothes and shoes for the young moms; such as flip flops, sandals, tennis shoes, socks, blouses, cardigans, longer skirts and dresses and casual clothes. Clothing needed for babies, toddlers and children of all ages include: lightweight pajamas, onesies, t-shirts, shorts, pants, skirts, dresses, light sweaters and sandals, socks, and shoes. Small toys, bedding, old cell phones, and some over-the-counter drugs are also needed.
Donations may be left in the Sacred Heart church basement on the card table next to the piano. Please put Emily’s name on the donation bag. Thank you!
On-line Parish Directory; both Parishes: I know there are those who are tired of hearing me speak about this, but I also know that many who have downloaded the APP have really enjoyed being able to use the directory.
