A summary of these instructions for Masses that will take place at Sacred Heart can be accessed here. The full Diocese instructions can be accessed here. Updates will be provided as instructions change. I appreciate your support, cooperation and compliance with these instructions during these current circumstances.

Parish Online Giving/Donations Now Available 

New for Sacred Heart, you can NOW give to the parish your regular donation through an online giving option. As Bishop McKnight quoted in his Homily at the Chrism Mass, "The church is not empty, the church has been deployed.” This is the time when our faith calls us to action, and our obligation to serve others in justice and mercy flow outward from our parish. Please consider continuing your tithe online, through EFT or by mailing in your tithing envelopes to the parish office. Click button at right to get started. You can give one time or set up recurring debits from a credit card or bank debit. You can leave a comment on the form, such as if you are giving a donation in honor or memorial of an individual.
Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to  overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. — Proverbs 3:9-10

Livestream Mass Resources

There are many resources to view the Mass online both daily and on Sundays. Below are a few, but a simple web search for "Online Catholic Mass" will yield additional options. There also are Catholic apps for your phone from which you can listen to the Mass. You can find a complete list of parishes in the Diocese of Jefferson City that are  livestreaming by clicking here. Remember, most all of these sources are available for viewing after the livestream, if you cannot be online at that time, due to them being recorded and posted afterward.

Eucharistic Adoration Schedule Change at Sacred Heart

Beginning Friday, February 7, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at Sacred Heart will transition to a schedule of Friday 9am-9pm (First Friday only, no Saturday time slots) each month. We hope that more than one person will be present in each hourly slot available for this privileged prayer time in our Parish. The Adoration board will continue to be placed in the gathering space prior to the First Friday of each month. Please come pray with the Lord in the Chapel at Sacred Heart on the First Friday of each month.

This video gives some great tips to help you pray in Adoration.

Knights of Columbus — Many Successful 2019 Donations

The Eldon Knights of Columbus and guests enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Party in December, most especially because the Knights were able to share part the year's proceeds with partners in our community, the organizations that do so very much for the people in our community. Giving is what we are all about! Our Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus holds several fundraisers during the year (car show, fish fries, breakfasts, gun raffle, and Tootsie Roll Drive, all very fun and rewarding to work) to be able to share proceeds all with amazing organizations pictured. And even more excitement from our Council, because of our Tootsie Roll Drive success, we are very pleased to have been able to donate $1,800 to Cardinal Glennon Hospital in St. Louis. 

Totus Tuus, July 12-17, 2020 at Sacred Heart

Once again, Sacred Heart parish will host the Totus Tuus program this coming summer, July 12-17. Save the date and plan for your children to attend. The day program (M-F) is for incoming grades 1-6 and the evening teen program (Su-Th) is for incoming grades 7-12. We know there are many competing summer events, including family vacations, but we ask you to prayerfully consider scheduling that will allow your children to attend this program, which always is popular among parish youth of all ages. A pool party is tentatively planned for Friday, July 17.
