One Community, One Faith… Our Future

first-communionDear Friends in Christ,

Two years have passed since we started our quest for a new facility and we  have done a remarkable job, many dedicated parishioners have responded by raising funds and designing the facility, but we are NOT FINISHED and it will take everyone’s help!  You have a unique opportunity to be a part of securing the future of Sacred Heart Parish.

Just a few of the events that can benefit from the new larger facility:

  • Holy Days of Obligation Services
  • Funeral Receptions
  • Quinceañeras Celebrations
  • Parish Appreciation Dinner
  • Our Lady of Guadalupe Celebration
  • CYO Sports
  • Oktoberfest
  • Parish Ministry Meetings
  • School Graduation
  • Breakfast with Santa
  • Wedding Receptions
  • Back to School Bash
  • Spring Bazaar
  • School Talent Show

If every registered parishioner gives $1,000 we will reach our goal!

sacred-heart-pattersonNaming opportunities and memorial recognition are also available.  What better way to honor those before us than to provide for those that follow.  Can I count on you?  Please prayerfully consider this plea.  With the Lord’s help and the generosity of parishioners like you, our new facility will provide a welcoming place for many generations to come.

In the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul,

Rev. R. Rex Hays, C.M.

Pastor
