Sacred Heart Bulletin - August 5, 2018

Look to your covenant, O Lord, and forget not the life of your poor ones forever.  Arise, O God, and defend your cause and forget not the cries of those who seek you.  cf. Psalm 74 (73):20, 19, 22, 23.




Please remember to be as quiet as possible as you enter the church as there are those preparing for Mass, praying the Rosary or just quietly meditating.


The following Masses will be celebrated this week for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Tuesday, August 14, 6:00 p.m. Vigil Mass at St. Andrew and Wednesday, August 15, 6:30 p.m. Mass at Sacred Heart.  Please remember this is a Holy Day of Obligation.


Following today’s Mass, there will be a meeting of the Women’s Guild in the Social Hall.  All ladies are invited and encouraged to attend.


Some of you may remember that Holland Silver was scheduled to be Confirmed with her class this past June but was unable to do so due to a conflict with her school schedule.  Fr. Fred received permission from our Bishop to Confirm Holland, and that will take place during Mass next Sunday, August 19.  Please keep Holland and all her family in your prayers as she prepares to celebrate this Sacrament.


At the end of today’s Mass, Ernie Pinto will be speaking about the Knights of Columbus “Operation LAMB.”  All donations are used to support those in our communities with intellectual disabilities.


Please welcome a member of St. Andrew’s Guild who is with us today to talk about a silent auction fundraiser for our Parish.  The items to be auctioned (three paintings, one needlepoint pillow) will be on display in the Social Hall after Mass.


The Diocesan Office for Lay Ministry is currently accepting applications for the two-year Lay Ministry program designed to help you understand more fully your baptismal call to minister to your family, to others in the Church, and to those in your daily life.  This program is also a prerequisite for the permanent diaconate.  Classes for Year 1 will be held in Arden, Greensboro, Lenoir and the Smoky Mountain area beginning in September/October.  For more information, please contact Frank Villaronga at or 704 370-3274.


PLEASE WISH “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to Danielle Silver, August 2; Teresa Macking, August 4; Jerry Huddleston, August 11; Rebecca Madrid, August 30.


Christ makes it quite clear that he expects us to be different. One of the ways he expects us to be different is by practicing stewardship of time, talent and treasure.
