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.
On Sunday, April 26, the parishioners of Sacred Heart gathererd at 11:15 am to celebrate Mass and recognize our 2015 high school graduates. Shown here are the happy graduates! We send them off with wishes of great success and many prayers.
On April 18, we welcomed 61 young Catholic student to the Table of the Lord. First Eucharist for families who speak Spanish was held at 11 am on that Saturday, with a full house in attendance. It was a beautiful Mass, and everyone had a big smile. The picture here was taken by parishioner Erica Fontana of Photography by E. Erica also took pictures of every student at the dress rehearsal on the previous Wednesday.
Our building project is underway! If you haven't noticed, we are doing some construction to our school. We are creating a new multi-purpose meeting room for both church and school by remodeling the current kindergarten classrooms. The kindergarten classes will move into the new addition on the northeast side of the building, along with two new preschool classrooms. For the first time, we will be offering a developmental kindergarten class. This project is slated for completion by the start of school in the fall of 2015.
