On the weekend of November 9 and 10, we gather after each Mass to say farewell to Father Dan. Following each Mass, the parishioners had the opportunity to thank Father Dan for all he has given to Sacred Heart in the short time that we have had the chance to have him here. Later that day, Father Dan offered his final presentation called Mass Confusion. THANK YOU Father Dan.
On Sunday, November 3, we celebrated the Mass of Remembrance at 11:15 am for almost 50 family members and loved ones who have died in the past year. Father Dan presented a beautiful homily as a special tribute to those remembered from today, yesterday and always. The altar was adorned with a candle for each person remembered.
