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.
Mercy Ministry: Our Mercy Ministry responds to God’s gifts by visiting the sick, providing senior activities, visiting the homebound, providing transportation to appointments and in many other ways. Perhaps this is something you would like to get involved with. A big thank you to Jackie Fietkiewicz for organizing the many facets of our Mercy Ministry at Sacred Heart. She does an amazing job. If you would like to get involved with this please call Jackie at 698-4343.
Anna’s Pantry: Each month Anna’s Pantry provides food for over 100 local families who don’t have enough to eat. We have resources such as grants, government food and donations to supply these meals. As well as food, many of these families need help with other expenses. Often we are approached by families who are facing other serious financial hardships. We are not always able to help but sometimes are able to offer a loan which may or may not be paid back. The funding we use for these personal emergency loans comes strictly from donations. We wish to thank all those who support us in this manner to insure that we can occasionally meet critical needs other than just food shortages.
Members of our Mercy Ministry will meet Thursday, March 5th, at 9 A.M. Everyone is welcome to join us to learn more about our ministry.
Family in need of household items: We have a client from Anna’s Pantry who just moved into a new home and needs household items. If you have anything to spare please leave it by the pantry food collection baskets at the entrances to church. We will see that this family gets a good start on their new life.
Anna’s Pantry: Thank you to everyone who donates to Anna’s Pantry on a regular basis. Your help is always appreciated! If you have been thinking about making a donation but weren’t quite sure what to get some of the things we are most in need of include bars of soap, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant and feminine hygiene products. These items are always in high demand since these things can not be purchased with SNAP (formerly food stamps) benefits.
Mercy Ministry: A Human Development Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 25th, at 10 A.M. in the Community Room. Everyone is welcome to join us to plan activities for the upcoming year. If you cannot attend the meeting but would like to get involved please contact Sandy at 699-6401.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR US EACH DAY!
