 Quilt Social Worker

       Sacred Heart has an annual Quilt Social in the fall of each year. It will be held on Sunday, October 15 and begin at 1:30 p.m.. There is always a need for kitchen and bingo workers for this event.

 Stewardship Committee

       Stewardship is a way of life. It includes our Prayer, Participation, and Payback. It is a way of living each day in gratitude for all the blessings that God has given to us. The roots of stewardship can be found in the Bible, which tells us over and over that God is the Creator and Giver of all gifts. It is our responsibility to show our gratitude to God for these gifts, by giving back to Him the “first fruits.” We do not own the gifts God gives to us. We are only here on earth to use those gifts to do God’s work. The Stewardship Committee co-ordinates the annual Stewardship Sunday effort.
