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.
THANK YOU! Our Thanksgiving Distribution was amazing thanks to all of you. We had 111 people preregistered to receive baskets. Each family received a turkey plus all the trimmings, fresh fruit, cereal, and many more treats to carry them through the holiday weekend. Your generosity was appreciated by everyone receiving a food basket.
THE “GIVING TREES” have been moved to the lobby. Please select a tag and return the unwrapped gift with the tag securely attached before 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. Gift cards may be placed in the receptacle for Faith Formation. We also need wrapping paper and tape for the preparation of the gifts.
Catholic Charities Men’s Shelter Sandwich-making: Thank you to everyone who helped to make sandwiches for the men from the shelter and the visitors to the Assumption Church soup kitchen. The recipients of your hard work were very appreciative!
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.
Our Annual holiday dinner at Sacred Heart Apartments and Lucille Manor will be held on November 30th. Dinner will be prepared here at church and delivered to the residents. We can use a little help with preparing, serving and cleaning up after this activity. We could also use a couple of desserts for the Sacred Heart Apartment dinner. Let us know if you’d like to bake. Please call the Human Development office at 699-6401 if you would like to volunteer.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR US EACH DAY!
