Annual Catholic Appeal
The Archdiocesan Catholic Appeal has a direct and powerful impact on parishes, schools and agencies providing educational opportunities and care for others through the many outreach programs and projects in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Sacred Heart Parish benefits each year from this Appeal. Tina Weber and Diane Stoverink (636-937-4662) co-ordinate the Appeal at our Parish.
The Finance Council meets quarterly to review the financial reports of the parish. They are constantly looking for ways to help Sacred Heart Parish continue to be good stewards. Steve Bacon is Chairperson 636-209-0808.
Each Sunday morning the weekly offering is counted and deposited in the bank. There are several teams of money counters that perform this duty each week. Call Fr. Mathew if you are interested in helping.
The Certificate / Scrip Program earns revenue for the parish by selling gift certificates of selected merchants. We purchase our certificates from Great Lakes Scrip Center and receive up to 15% of the face value of the certificate. We have on hand for sale each week a limited amount of:
Amazon.com Bath & Body Works CVS Pharmacy Famous Footwear
Hallmark Gift Card Home Depot JC Penney JoAnn Fabrics
Kohl’s Lowe’s Hardware Macy’s Target
Old Navy / Gap Wal-Mart & Sam’s Club Arby's
BP Gas Mobil / Exxon Applebee’s Starbucks
Bob Evans Burger King Cracker Barrel Jack in the Box
Red Lobster Olive Garden St Louis Bread
Steak ‘n Shake Subway Texas Roadhouse
You can also order certificates and they will be in that same week. Go to www.shopwithscrip.com for a complete list of retailers available. The certificates are sold before and after all the weekend Masses. You can also drop by the Parish Office during regular working hours if you don't get the certificates on the weekend. For more information call 636-937-4662 or 636-937-0540.
Quilt Social Worker
Sacred Heart has an annual Quilt Social in the fall of each year. It will be held on Sunday, October 21 and begin at 1:30 p.m.. There is always a need for kitchen and bingo workers for this event.
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.
