Sacred Heart Bulletin - August 18, 2019

Turn your eyes, O God, our shield, and look on the face of your anointed one.  One day within your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.  Psalm 84 (83):10-11.

WEEKDAY MASS SCHEDULE:  Wednesday at 12:00 p.m.

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.

To date, 37 families/individuals in our Parish (21 at St. Andrew and 16 at Sacred Heart) have either pledged or made a one-time donation to this year’s DSA.  The current balances due are $4,517.00 for St. Andrew and $4,291 for Sacred Heart.  There are many ways to donate:  (1) online at where you can make a pledge or a one-time donation; (2) mail checks made payable to DSA 2019 (not to Sacred Heart) directly to DSA 2019, Diocese of Charlotte, 1123 South Church Street, Charlotte, North Carolina 28203; or (3) place a check in the collection baskets at Sunday Masses.  It is very important that the church name is noted on the memo line of the check.  Please be as generous as possible.
