Sacred Heart Bulletin - April 22, 2018

The merciful love of the Lord fills the earth; by the word of the Lord the heavens were made, alleluia.  cf. Psalm 33 (32):5-6.


DAILY MASS SCHEDULE:  There will be no daily Mass this Wednesday, April 25.  Please see below for more schedule information.


Today, we will have a second collection for Seminarian and Priests’ Continuing Education.  Your generous response to this collection will help meet the growing needs of our Seminarian program, which is primarily funded through the DSA, the seminarian education major gifts campaign, and today’s second collection. There are currently 27 young men studying for the priesthood at St. Joseph Seminary in Charlotte, the Pontifical College Josephinum Seminary in Ohio and at the Pontifical North American College in Rome.  We all look forward to the time when these young men will be able to begin their service as priests in the Diocese of Charlotte. This collection will also fund continuing education opportunities for priests currently serving in our diocese.


Hopefully, everyone has seen the photos of the new rectory that were emailed a few days ago.  While the rectory has been set on its permanent foundation and roofing work has been completed, there is still much work to be done (electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc.) over the next few weeks.  Fr. Fred needs to be readily available to talk with the various contractors as well as begin in earnest to prepare for his ultimate move from the church to the rectory.  Under these circumstances, there will be no daily Mass this Wednesday and the Parish Office will be closed Monday through Friday.


Next Sunday, April 29, Fr. John Pagel will be celebrating our Sunday Masses at Sacred Heart.


Following today’s Mass, there will be a meeting of the Women’s Guild in the Social Hall downstairs.  All ladies are invited and encouraged to attend.  This meeting will primarily deal with the Guild’s upcoming major fundraiser, its Annual Rummage and Bake Sale that is scheduled for two days this year, Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28, 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day. Please plan to drop off your gently-used items this Wednesday, April 25, or Thursday, April 26, at 10:00 a.m. either day.  If anyone needs to schedule a different time to drop off donations, please contact Helene Moore at 828 208-0934.  Also, please consider donating some time to help the Guild with sorting, pricing, etc.  All proceeds from this sale will be used for our church and other charitable organizations in our community.


Please wish “Happy Birthday” to Justin Moore, April 2; Holland Silver, April 14; Sawyer Silver, April 15; Alicia Kragten, April 16. 



If we give ourselves to God and let Him use our talents to serve others, we will be amazed by the results.  Not only will our lives be changed but so will the lives of others.
