Catholics Coming Home, Begins April 15

Sacred Heart will offer a six-week series entitled “Catholics Returning Home” beginning April 15. The sessions are for nonpracticing Catholics who are seeking answers to questions about returning to the Church. If you know someone who has left the Church, please invite them to join us. The informal meetings will be facilitated by former non-practicing Catholics who are Sacred Heart parishioners. For information contact the Parish Office at 573-392-5334. Do you know someone who has left the Church? Most of us do not have to look very far to find non-practicing Catholics in our circle of family and friends. How can we help them find their way home? You can make a tremendous difference in someone’s life simply by reaching out to them and telling them that we miss them and would like for them to come back home to our Church family, and share this program with them. 

Lenten Reconciliation Services

There will be additional Sacrament of Reconciliation times during Holy Week. Times are: 6-7pm Wednesday; After Mass on Holy Thursday (After 8pm); Noon-1pm Good Friday; 6:15-6:50pm Good Friday; and 4-5pm Holy Saturday. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered every Saturday from 4-5pm (in the Chapel Confessional in the front of Church) and by appointment.

Holy Week Mass Times & Resources

Holy Week Mass times at Sacred Heart are as follows: Holy Thursday Mass at 7 pm with Eucharistic Adoration until Midnight; Good Friday Mass at 7pm; Holy Saturday/Easter Vigil Mass at 8pm; Easter Sunday Mass at 9am. Please note there will be no regularly-scheduled Eucharistic Adoration in April. It would interfere with Holy Week and Easter, which takes precedence over all other normal activities.

Sunday Mass Transportation Needs

Do you know someone who would come to Sunday Mass if they had transportation? There are a number of people who do not have transportation or who have a disability that prevents them from driving. We would like to collect the names and phone numbers of all persons who would come to Mass if they had transportation. Please help us by calling in (392-5334) the names and phone numbers of any persons you know in this situation. 

Family Portrait Directory, This November

Plan now for your family’s photo to be in the pictorial directory by marking on your calendar at home with these photography dates. 

The Parish Council has recommended that Sacred Heart develop a new pictorial directory. The Altar Society will work with the Life Touch Company on this project. 

Photography dates are set for November 17-21 and November 27-28.
