How can I repay the Lord for all the good done for me? Ps 116:12
For over 100 years, Sacred Heart Catholic Church has played a vital role in West Des Moines and surrounding communities. As we strive to meet the needs of our parishioners and our community, we find that we need the support of each and every member. We ask you to invest in your parish.
Your investment in Sacred Heart is an investment in your own spiritual growth. But that investment goes much further. Your gift will support our worship, our many caring ministries for those in need, the faith of our youth and adult members, and the cost of operating our beautiful facilities.
Beyond the financial needs of Sacred Heart, we invite you to consider participation in our parish as an active member. We offer a wide variety of programs and organizations that will provide you with an opportunity to play an active role in the life of our parish, and to grow in your faith. Click here for details.
We invite you to prayerfully consider how you might give of your time, your talent and your treasure.
Annual Stewardship Pledge
An annual stewardship / tithing pledge to Sacred Heart Parish is essential to our mission. Your pledge will provide the funding necessary to support parish programs and ministries. There are several options for fulfilling your pledge. Click here to view our Stewardship / Tithe Form.
Many banks allow you to initiate payments online. You set the amount and frequency, the bank automatically sends a check to Sacred Heart accordingly. Use your bank's website and follow their instructions.
Sacred Heart provides stewardship (tithing) envelopes each month for parishioners who do not use electronic banking or online banking. The use of these envelopes allows us to track your donations and provide you with a year-end statement of giving for use in filing your tax return.
Special collection envelopes can be found at all church doors and gathering space.
We gladly accept cash donations. However, if you want a year-end statement for income tax purposes, please use envelopes or contribute by check.

Giving of the Gift of your Time
While gifts of cash donations are essential to running a parish the size of Sacred Heart, we also see great value in the gift of your time and your talent. Announcements of service opportunities or community needs will be posted in our web site, announced at Mass, or listed in the bulletin.
