The Human Development Ministry at Sacred Heart Church strives to "warm the often cold impersonal scene of modern life." Human development consists of a committee of dedicated people who meet each month to discuss plans, share ideas and evaluate activities. The scope of the committee includes the following:
News & Updates
TO ALL STUDENTS: Many opportunities to complete required community service hours will be offered each month. Please be sure and contact us well in advance of deadline dates when service hours are due so that we may help you find projects to work on. Call the Human Development Office at 699-6401 to inquire about opportunities that are available.
“GIVING TREES” : To insure that your gift gets to
the person you have purchased it for
please return all
gifts by Sunday, December 14th. If you have shopped
during the year and found good deals that you want to donate
we can definitely find a recipient for your gift. If you
are interested in participating but couldn’t find a tag that
looked interesting please consider purchasing a family
board game or toys such as Lego’s or dolls, or movie gift
cards. Gift cards may be placed in the receptacle for Faith
Formation. We also need wrapping paper and tape for the
preparation of the gifts. Many families have contacted us
for gifts since the tree went up. Their requests did not get
on the tree so all donations are welcome.
WE NEED LOTS OF HELP! Volunteers are needed to sort and prepare gifts for distribution. We will work 9:30 A.M. to 4 P.M. on Monday the 15th, Tuesday the 16th and Wednesday the 17th. Please call the Human Development Office at 699-6401 to help with this activity.
Fruit of the Vine Wine Tasting to benefit Anna’s Pantry will be held on January 31st. Pat DiPasqua has agreed to be chairperson and Kate Moran will be Co-Chair. Last year this sold out event was a great success. We need many volunteers to make this years event an even bigger success. People are needed to help cook, set up, serve, prepare baskets and much more. We also need donations of items for theme baskets to be raffled or perhaps you’d like to share your favorite appetizer. If you can help in any way please contact Pat DiPasqua at 315-730-2823 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anna’s Pantry recently received a check from the Cradle and Beyond, a used clothing store in North Syracuse. They are located in Andrew’s United Methodist Church at 102 Church St. They donate to Anna’s Pantry twice a year. We encourage all parishioners who have clothing or household supplies that they would like to donate to bring them to this organization. Whenever we have a family in dire need they are always willing to provide free clothing.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR US EACH DAY!
