Sacred Heart Bulletin - September 24, 2017

I am the salvation of the people, says the Lord.  Should they cry to me in any distress, I will hear them, and I will be their Lord forever.


DAILY MASS SCHEDULE:  Wednesday at Noon.


Please remember to be as quiet as possible as you enter the church as there are those praying quietly, meditating, or reciting the Rosary in preparation for entering into the Holy Mass.


Following next Sunday’s Mass, October 7, there will be a potluck lunch in the Social Hall downstairs.  Please plan to stay for good food and fellowship.


Today, there will be a second collection for Priest Retirement.  The total assessment for this collection is $5,331.00 ($2,572.00 for Sacred Heart and $2,759.00 for St. Andrew).  Last weekend, $766.00 was donated (Sacred Heart, $389.00; St. Andrew, $377.00), which leaves a balance due of $4,565.00.  Please give prayerful consideration to this collection and be generous.


This Wednesday, October 27, Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, will be launching a global movement entitled “Share the Journey.”  He will be calling all of us to support our brothers and sisters throughout the world who have fled their homes seeking a decent and safe life for their families, to build stronger communities and more inclusive societies, to share of ourselves and offer friendship in exchange for friendship.  In solidarity with this movement, the Asheville Vicariate will sponsor an ecumenical prayer service on Saturday, October 28, beginning at 11:30 a.m. on the green space in front of the Buncombe County Courthouse in Asheville.  This gathering will be focused on prayer and is not a protest or political event.  Please look in future bulletins for more information about this important campaign.

The Knights continue to host Bingo games the first and third Mondays of each month.  Doors open at 12:00 p.m., and games begin at 100 p.m.


Please wish “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” toCarmela Mandala, October 6; Maria Paulin, October 8; Susie Ferguson, October 15; Scotty Moore, October 18; Carole Baker, October 25; Dan Macking, October 28.


As followers of Jesus Christ, we find that the things the world holds out in front of us as markers of success often lack meaning and ultimately distract us from what really matters.  We will find true happiness by losing ourselves to the loving, merciful will of God; we will gain a new and enriching perspective when we see that all we are, have, and will be are gifts from God, to be nurtured and shared, out of gratitude for all that we have been given.
