Sacred Heart Church | SMASH

Look who came to Smash on Wednesday, September 23? Some of you thought that Pope Francis was limiting his visits to locations on the east coast, but he made a surprise visit to Sacred Heart Youth Ministry. Luckily, the students were able to convince him to join them in a group selfie!!

Sacred Heart Church | Children's LiturgyAlmost every Sunday during 9:30 Mass, children (ages kindergarten and older) are invited to join Mary Zug for Children's Liturgy of the Word. The students leave church for a brief time to hear the readings from the Children's Lectionary, and to discuss what is happening all around us in our Church. Parents, encourage your children to join Mary if they would like. Parents are also invited join the group - especially when there are many children participating! This is a wonderful opportunity for the children of our parish to learn what we do at Mass.

Watch the bulletin and this web site for upcoming blood drives at Sacred Heart and consider donating. Contact JoAnn Fischer at (515) 865-3779 with questions.
