Summertime in our Parishes...

May 18, 2017

As summer approaches, the Parishes of Sacred Heart and St. John's begin to change over to our "summer ways". Some of our groups such as RCIA, Mary's Circle and the Prayer Shawl Ministry with take a summer break and will begin meeting in the fall. Also, our Hospitality Ministries will begin their summer schedules. Sacred Heart Hospitality will beginning setting up their collation following the Mass on the lawn outside of the Sacred Heart Rectory. Coffee, juice and savory items will be served as Parishioners gather for fellowship and conversation. St. John's Hospitality Teams will scale back to a lighter fare over the summer as well. We are currently looking for volunteers to help us at the Fr. Jack Gentleman Clergy Cookout which takes place on Wednesday, June 14th for the Retired Priests from Regina Cleri as well as the invited priests from the North Region. Our Parish Office will be open during the summer Monday through Friday from 9 to 3 pm and our Sacred Heart Chapel as well if you care to stop by for a few moments of prayer and quiet time.
