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. 

Please help celebrate Fran DeVliegher’s retirement after 22 years of service in our Parish Office.

Join us after the 10:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, January 5 to celebrate with sausage, pancakes, and cake!
