We need families from the parish to host dinners during the time the four Totus Tuus missionaries are here. They have transportation and a scheduled dinner time of 5:30 P.M. that could be flexible. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday are open.

Please consider hosting two young adult Totus Tuus missionaries (men or women) from July 6th to July 13th while our parish hosts the Totus Tuus program. Housing is needed from Saturday late afternoon to the following Saturday. Missionaries will need a light breakfast daily and use of a washer and dryer. They will leave the home early in the morning and return late in the evening most days. Contact Tracy or Gina for additional information (315)699-7678.

Thank you for considering being a host family!

Faith Formation, previously referred to as Religious Education, is intended to begin by 1st grade and continued through Confirmation. After Confirmation we continue learning about our faith as we live and share it. Our goal is to assist families, where the majority of the faith is learned, along their path. Let us know how we can help!

Kindergarten to 6th grade

It is never to late to begin Faith Formation classes! If you know of someone that is past the traditional age have them contact our office and we can offer some options.

Confirmation Year 1 and 2

Sacred Heart offers a two year Confirmation program beginning in the 7th grade. We use the Chosen program from Ascension Press which incorporates video, book and small group discussion.

Home School: This year must be complete before registering for the next year.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word: We could use some adult aged help with the Children’s Liturgy of the Word, a program for pre-school aged and young children(3 years through 1st grade) during the 11:00 A.M. Mass. Contact the office if you are interested in getting involved. (315)699-7678

Prayer for the Holy Family Of God

O God, who was pleased to give us
the shining example of the Holy Family,
graciously grant that we may imitate them
in practicing the virtues of family life.
Transform our doubt to faith; Strengthen our hope;
Help us to live in charity.
Until we are all one in your kingdom
through Jesus Christ, your Son,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.

AMEN
