The Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus met on Monday, August 18. Pictured below are the Knights displaying the new state motto for the Iowa K of C members, "Go Make A Difference." Watch this page or the Sacred Heart Church Knights of Columbus web page for upcoming activities sponsored by the Knights of Columbus that will be held throughout the year!
They're back! On July 27, the youth group returned from their trip to Colorado where they helped with flood relief. We are happy to have them home safe -- and I am sure tired and very proud of the good work they did. Oh, I almost forgot, they had a GREAT time! When you get a chance, please say 'thank you' to these young people of our parish for their commitment to help those in need.

What a great day for golf! Friday, July 25 was the date for the 2014 Annual Golf Outing. Each year, parishioners gather to enjoy a day of golf. Once again, the outing was held at Legacy Golf Course in Norwalk. The weather cooperated, and we even had a hole in one (congrats to Kent Gleichman). In addition to the fun, each year the event raises funds to support the Sacred Heart Parish Nursing program, and events and activities sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. These important programs offer support that will benefit many of our parishioners and our community.

I have heard it said that when you sing at church, you pray twice. It's a beautiful thought! If you are interested in putting that concept into practice, you might want to consider joining one of our choirs at Sacred Heart Church. Currently, we offer: Chancel Choir (mixed adults), a Children's Choir (grades 3-8), Heartbeats Praise Band (a mixerd adult choir), Teen Choir (contemporary music with high school students), KC Choir (membership in Knights of Columbus is not requried), and Voices from the Heart (a newly established women's choir). This is a great way to play a vital role in our liturgy! CLICK HERE to learn more about our choirs.
The new officers for the Sacred Heart Church Knights of Columbus were installed on Monday, July 21. Our Knights are a very active group of devoted Catholic men. Throughout the year, the Knights host a variety of events designed to raise money used to support various groups at Sacred Heart Church and in our surrounding community. On the weekend of August 22-23, the Knights will distribute Tootsie Rolls at 5 locations in our area.

On June 22, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), the Hispanic Knights of Columbus celebrated the feast day for Sacred Heart Catholic Church by hosting a dinner following the 1 pm Spanish Mass in the parish center. In addition, the Des Moines area Mariachi band played during Mass. Over 200 adults and children participated in the Mass, enjoyed a fabulous meal, and had a great time.
