STEWARDSHIP Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden because of their disobedience. But Jesus says in today’s Gospel that when we are obedient to God’s will – when we use our gifts to serve one another – we become part of His family. “Whoever does the will of God is brother and sister and mother to me.”

 

DIOCESAN SUPPORT APPEAL 2024 WOW! When you are asked to “step up,” oh my, you sure “step up1” The DSA report of June 3 shows that St. Andrew has met 58% of the $9450 goal and Sacred Heart has met 54% of the $10,948 goal. (Last week we were at 49% and 31% respectively.) Let’s keep bringing those numbers up! Any shortfall will be paid from the churches’ operating budgets. You may complete a pledge envelope or drop your donation into the envelope and return it to the Parish Office or go to charlottediocese.org/dsa to make a gift online.

 

SACRED HEART CONTINUES TO SUPPORT the Reconciliation House food pantry. The food pantry needs canned goods: soup, beef stew, spam, and hash. Kids are out of school, so families have extra meals to prepare. Any non-perishable kid-friendly foods and snacks are also appreciated.
