New Mass Schedule Beginning June 30/July 1

On the weekend of June 16-17, Father Alex announced the Mass times at Sacred Heart will be changing to accommodate his recent, additional parish assignment of Our Lady of Snows in Mary’s Home. They are as follows:


Saturday Night – 4:30pm Sacred Heart (6:30pm Mary’s Home)
Sunday Morning – 10am Sacred Heart (8am Mary’s Home)
Daily Mass – 8am Tuesday & Friday at Sacred Heart (6pm Tuesday, 8am Wednesday & Thursday at Mary’s Home).
Note that on the days there is not weekly Mass, the Chapel will be open for prayer, the Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet and other devotions.

Totus Tuus, July 8-13 & Parish Pool Party, July 14

Once again the Totus Tuus program will be coming to Sacred Heart, July 8-13. This includes a day program Monday-Friday for incoming grades 1-6 (9am-2:30pm) and an evening program Sunday-Thursday for grades 7-12 (7:30-9:30pm). Please plan for your children to attend this awesome event that gets high marks each year from those attending. Even if your children can’t attend every day, we want them to come as much as possible. 


Totus Tuus is open to all Sacred Heart families, but also cousins who are visiting and friends and family from neighboring parishes, etc. Please extend the invite and the registration form to anyone you know who may be interested. As well, while it is a Catholic program, non-Catholic youth are invited to attend. Please fill out the registration form as soon as possible and return to the parish office or place in the collection basket, as a good head count in advance helps us plan for food and materials. 


In celebration of summer and the finale of Totus Tuus, we’ll have a Parish Pool Party at the Eldon Aquatic Center from Saturday, July 14 6:30-8:30pm. As in years past, all Sacred Heart families with children of any age are invited as are grandparents! We’ll provide a meal and beverages and there is no cost. Please RSVP to Carmen Burton at 573-434-1168 OR mark the RSVP area included on the Totus Tuus registration form. Again, a good head count in advance helps us plan for food.
