On the weekend of July 4 and 5, Sacred Heart was happy to welcome our new priests as they presided over all Masses to help us get aquainted. Father Chris Hartshorn will be the new pastor of Sacred Heart, but this is not the first time that Father Chris has served Sacred Heart, the first time was in the mid-90s. Father Luis Mejia was ordained into the priesthood in June and Sacred Heart is his first assignment as our parocial vicar. Please join us in welcoming Father Chris and Father Luis to Sacred Heart.
Life at Sacred Heart Church has been very busy and full of change. On June 28, many dedicated and hardworking volunteers put together a celebration for Father Hess following the 4 pm Mass. After Mass, 700 people gathered to enjoy some great food and fellowship, and to thank Father Hess for everything he has done for Sacred Heart Parish and so many individual members of our community throughout his 15 years of service.
On Sunday, June 29, Father Fabian gathered with parishioners in the parish center for a farewell reception. Father Fabian has been at Sacred Heart for just a few years, but he has had a great impact on the community at Sacred Heart. We will miss Father Fabian and send him off with many prayers.
On Monday, June 15, the Sacred Heart Parish Knights of Columubs held a monthly meeting. The evening included a Rosary and dinner before the formal meeting in the parish center. Pictured here are Bill Wieland with the Knight of the month for June, Felipe Correa. If you are interested in joining the Knights or learning more about all the good work that they do, you can CLICK HERE to visit their web page.
On Sunday, May 31, Sacred Heart Church held the first ever Taco Sunday! Hosted by the Knights of Columbus, tacos were sold after the 11:15 am and 1 pm Masses. The proceeds will go to support Catholic education. Pictured here are happy participants!
On Monday, May 18, the Sacred Heart Church Knights of Columbus presented Father Fabian with a K of C jacket to thank him and to help him remember his time at our parish. Father Fabian will be leaving us to serve a parish in Council Bluffs at the end of June. The Knights also welcomed 6 new members and honored long-time Knight, Jim Donlan, with the award for the May Knight of the month.
On May 2, 2015 we held our second celebration of First Eucharist at Sacred Heart Church for 68 of our young Catholic students. The day was beautiful, the smiles were happy, and the weather was perfect. All of the young people began formal preparation for the reception of Eucharist for the very first time last fall, but most have looked forward to this day since they can remember coming forward with parents and siblings. We thank the teachers at both Sacred Heart School and Children's Faith Formation for the role they have played in helping our students grow in faith, but more important is the role that parents play as our young people grow in faith today and throughout their lives.
