Ordinary Synod on the Family Survey

In October 2014, a number of married couples from around the world gave their testimonies on the joys and challenges of their family life at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family in Rome. These testimonies were an important part of the dialogue at the Synod that helped focus discussion on how the Church should shape its pastoral efforts to support marriage and family life in the modern world. The Extraordinary Synod was also drawing on responses from a global survey conducted at the end of 2013 that was used to develop the preparatory document for the Extraordinary Synod.

In the spirit of dialogue, Pope Francis wishes to receive further feedback from Catholics on the outcome of the Extraordinary Synod to help the Church prepare for the Ordinary Synod on the Family that is scheduled for October 4-25, 2015. The Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City would appreciate your time to fill in this survey so that we can help shape the response that will be sent to Rome.

The print survey also will be published in the Sacred Heart bulletin. You can return your survey to the parish, who will deliver it to the Diocese OR you can send the form directly to the diocese. The mailing address is: Family Survey, Diocese of Jefferson City, PO Box 104900, Jefferson City, MO 65101.

Financial Peace University, Beginning February

Beginning the first Sunday evening in February, Sacred Heart will host “Financial Peace University” which is a nine-session course in managing personal and family finances. The average family completing the course pays off $5,300 and saves $2,700 in just 90 days. That’s an $8,000 change in position. 

This program is the creation of Dave Ramsey, the financial management expert who has authored several best-sellers and who you can hear on the radio almost daily. Sonny Evers, a CPA and Sacred Heart parishioner, has offered to teach this course here in Eldon to help families in managing their finances. 

Sacred Heart Parish will host the course; individuals and couples from other local churches and from the Eldon area are welcomed and invited to participate as well as our own parishioners. Classes will be Sunday evening from 6-8pm and will run February 1 to March 29. 

A personal testimony from Monsignor Lammers: “The last four or five years I was at St. Peter’s in Jefferson City, lay leaders led the course about twice a year. It was of great value for many families.” Learn more and register online.
