Sacred Heart Bulletin - October 13, 2019

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?  But with you is found forgiveness, O God of Israel.  Psalm 130 (129):3-4.


WEEKDAY MASS SCHEDULEWednesday at 12:00 p.m.  Please see information below concerning this Wednesday, October 16.


As you are entering the church, please remember to be as quiet as possible for those who are praying or meditating in preparation for the Sunday Mass.


During the month of October, we will pay special homage to the Blessed Virgin Mary by praying the Rosary before each Sunday Mass.  Everyone is encouraged to gather with others at 11:00 a.m. to express our devotion to the Blessed Mother.

This Wednesday, October 16, at 12:00 p.m. at Sacred Heart we will celebrate a Memorial Mass for Jenifer Morgan.  This will replace the usual daily Mass that would be celebrated this Wednesday.  For those of you who did not know Jenifer, she was a long-time parishioner at Sacred Heart and was very involved with our Hispanic community.  For many years, she helped provide music for the Spanish Masses.  She was a tireless advocate for social justice and involved in outreach with many different organizations in our area, some of which she helped form.  Everyone is invited to attend this Memorial Mass.

Following next Sunday’s Mass, October 20, there will be a Coffee-and-Doughnut fundraiser, as well as a meeting of the Women’s Guild.

The Diocesan Office of Evangelization and Parish of St. Barnabas are coordinating a special pilgrimage to see the internationally-renowned German Passion Play and to tour Eastern Europe, including Prague and Poland, May 20-30, 2020.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the world-famous Passion Play at Oberamergau, Germany, celebrate the 100th birthday anniversary of St. John Paul II in Poland, venerate the icon of Our Lady of Czestowchowa, and visit the Shrine of Divine Mercy in Krakow.  For more information, please contact Frank Villaronga, Diocesan Director of Evangelization and Adult Education, at 704 370-3274 or  You may also contact Evelyn Wavrek at Select International Tours by calling 800 842-4842.

Stewardship is an important concept for our spiritual growth as Catholics.  It is a way of thanking God for all His blessings by returning to Him a portion of the time, talent and treasure we have received.
