Santa's Workshop ... Thank You to All
On Saturday, December 8, Sacred Heart hosted the 14th annual Santa’s Workshop. This year gifts were provided to 110 kids from within and outside Eldon. We were blessed to have a big team of gift wrappers, energetic elves, wonderful musicians and many dedicated volunteers to run the program. It was a collective effort of many hands that brought forth a wonderful day. It was all possible because of the donations and gifts given generously by our parishioners. Congratulations to one and all. Special thanks also to Pastor Chris Reynolds and his team members at Ninth Street Christian Church for making their facilities available to host the event, due to Sacred Heart Church construction.

Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive A Success
Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus has completed and submitted their 2018 Tootsie Roll Drive. This past October when you saw a Knight or two standing in front of one of our retailers, perhaps you didn’t realize how BIG and IMPACTING this event is for our community. This was our best donation year ever and credit for the success goes to the wonderful generosity of the people in our local community. This year the Eldon Knights of Columbus collected $4,143.06 (that’s a lot of Tootsie Rolls)! So where does the money go? Below please see a breakdown of this year’s donations:
- $2071.53 goes directly to Cardinal Glennon Hospital - For persons with developmental disabilities.
- $800 goes to Wonderland Camp in Rocky Mount – Wonderland Camp provides educational and safe summer camp experience for campers with disabilities ages 6 and up.
- $800 goes directly to Gateway Industries in Eldon – Gateway’s goal is to provide dignified and meaningful employment to individuals with disabilities.
- $471.53 goes directly to Quality Industries in Versailles – Operates a Sheltered Workshop for employee people with disabilities.

The Catholic Missourian is the publication of the Diocese of Jefferson City. It serves to inform about diocesan events, programs, news and personalities. National columnists and news articles provide information and commentary on the issues of the day in light of the Gospel and the Church’s reflection on it, as well as definitive teaching from official leaders. Read the Catholic Missourian online.
