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
Buckley Landing: The residents of Buckley Landing will be coming to Sacred Heart on Tuesday, August 4th, for Mass and a picnic lunch to follow. We need someone to barbecue the chicken. Please call Sandy at 699-6401 if you would be able to help with this. We have many parishioners at Buckley landing at this time so if you have a friend or relative who will be coming, please consider joining them for mass and lunch after. Just give us a call at 699-6401 so we can plan food for the day.
Sandwich-making: Thank you to everyone who helped to make sandwiches for the men from the Catholic Charities Men’s Shelter and the visitors to the Assumption Church Food Pantry. The recipients of your generosity are always very appreciative!
Anna’s Pantry is in the process of collecting school supplies for the families of Anna’s Pantry as they prepare to send their children back to school. Sending children back to school is an expensive process for any of us. It can be a budget breaker for people who are already stretching their dollars to the limit. Please purchase items and bring them to church by August 30th. If you missed the suggestion baskets in the lobby of church some of the items we are always short on are colored pencils, markers, highlighters, pocket folders, wide ruled notebook paper, composition books and backpacks. Our distribution will be on Tuesday, September 1st. Please consider helping us secure the items that the visitors to Anna’s Pantry need to insure the success of their children in school. We will also need help on September 1st. We will be working from 9:30 A.M. to about 3 P.M. Please call the Human Development Office at 699-6401 if you would be able to help for a couple of hours that day. We will also be collecting like new “back to school” children’s clothing during this time period. If you have any items to donate please place them near the food collection baskets at the entrances to church.

Attention all students! Summertime is a great time to start doing community service. All 8th, 9th and 10th grade students can start now to accumulate hours toward Confirmation requirements. 12 hours of “in church” community service must be completed before making Confirmation. Fulfill these requirements at your convenience and not when you are “under the gun” to complete them. Just call the Human Development Office at 699-6401 to select a project to work on.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR US EACH DAY!
