Just a reminder that JMJ  will have our closing party on Wednesday, May 30th at 3pm in the social hall.

Our JMJ disciples were excited to be able to present the Legion of Mary with a beautiful table runner depicting  the mysteries of the Rosary. Our JMJ Disciples worked hard to make it a beautiful keepsake. It truly was a group effort. Thank you to the Legion of Mary for surprising us with pizzas, we really enjoyed them.

As we close another successful year for JMJ, we invite young people between grade 3 and  8 to join us next year.



Saturdays BINGO BASH was a great success!!!!!! Thanks to all the Players,  Volunteers and a special shout out to the Knights of Columbus for helping out in the kitchen and serving lunch. Also there generous donation of prizes. Lots of our players stayed an extra week just to come to the Bingo Bash! We have a great group here at Sacred Heart. Without the support of people like you it would be more difficult for Sacred Heart Parish to continue to support our community which we all treasure. Monday night bingo continues hope to see you there!!


Traveling Mother of Divine Mercy Home Visitation

The statue of Our Lady of Fatima together with the image of the Divine Mercy started its travel during the first week of January this new year to the home of Jay and Merly Andre. The Andre family, joined by their close friends, prayed the rosary together and sang beautiful hymns. The hymns were led by Zena Schimizi and Emma Lombardo, accompanied by Jun Mina on guitar. The Andres had the image of the Divine Mercy blessed and enthroned as King of their Home and Family by Fr. Aldrin Nunes.

If you want to schedule a Pilgrim Virgin home visitation and a Divine Mercy enthronement at your home, please call 386-848-1787.


Breakfast with Santa— There were many smiles in the Social Hall this past Sunday as over seventy five children got to visit with Santa. The annual event sponsored by the Knights of Columbus was a resounding success. Parish families were treated to breakfast as the children made their wishes known to Jolly Old St. Nick. Many thanks to
Art Klobucar and the whole Breakfast crew who provided the meal!!!


Ministry to the Sick Workshop

-is led by Fr. Francis Nelson, C.Ss.R., and coordinated by Loretta Wells and Art Fandel, with the assistance of Melanie Barnickle. The Ministers to the Sick had a successful meeting Saturday, Dec. 2nd, at the newly renovated Sacred Heart Social Hall. Fr. Nelson provided an inspirational talk, and the volunteers of Sacred Heart Catholic Church who were called to minister with the sick and the homebound shared touching experiences during their visits, plus other things on their agenda.


The weather couldn’t have been more perfect! The Ladies of the CCW prepared and the Knights of Columbus cooked a picnic meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato & macaroni salad, plus the children dressed in costumes from Ghosts & Goblins to Power Rangers and Princesses, as they gobbled up goodies at Trunk or Treat. Even Stevie the Goat was in his glory dressed a the Pope. Gino Conte performed and provided some great music for an appreciative crowd. Fr. Tom and his wet suit graciously volunteered as target in the Dunk Tank as a reward he got Dunked10 – 15 times (we lost count). To be sure, a great time was had by all!! Looking forward to the next one in the Spring, Summer or Fall.


100th Year Fatima Anniversary Rosary Rally

It was so awesome to see Sacred Heart and St. Gerard parishioners united in prayer like one big family headed by Fr. Tom and Fr. Aldrin.  The Knights of Columbus members standing there like our big brothers providing strength and security, while CCW and St. Vincent de Paul members like our sisters & brothers always around to serve.  The Legionaries, Marian Prayer Group, and other Liturgical Ministries leading us spiritually in song and prayers. The children with their parents and teachers as they present our petitions at the foot of the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary was a touching sight to behold.  The Sacred Heart Choir provided a moving atmosphere with their beautiful rendition of “Ave Maria” as everyone offered a rose to Mother Mary.  So heartwarming to see older parishioners who can hardly walk being there to inspire us with their faith and true devotion. Thanks to all for making the 100th year Fatima Anniversary Rosary Rally become a great “parish family” prayerful event!
