Sacred Heart Church | Golf OutingOn Friday, July 24, approximately 90 golfers from Sacred Heart converged on Legacy Golf Course in Norwalk, Iowa for a day full of fun, food, festivities and fellowship - not to mention a great day for golf on a beautiful course! The generous proceeds for the annual golf outing go to support the parish nursing program at Sacred Heart Church, and the valuable efforts of Nancy Carlson, parish nurse, and her army of devoted volunteers. Thank you to everyone who joined in to support another successful golf outing! Watch this web page for details for the annual golf outing for next year.

Sacred Heart Church | Mission Trip

At the 4 pm Mass on July 18, 22 teens and chaperones gathered to worship together and to receive a blessing before heading off to the Winnebago Indian Reservation in Nebraska to volunteer valuable time and very hard work from July 19-25. The group will be working on community beautification projects such as repairing homes, and cleanup in neighborhoods and parks. Please keep this group in your prayers as they act as the hands of Christ through love and action.

Sacred Heart Church | New PriestsOn the weekend of July 4 and 5, Sacred Heart was happy to welcome our new priests as they presided over all Masses to help us get aquainted. Father Chris Hartshorn will be the new pastor of Sacred Heart, but this is not the first time that Father Chris has served Sacred Heart, the first time was in the mid-90s. Father Luis Mejia was ordained into the priesthood in June and Sacred Heart is his first assignment as our parocial vicar. Please join us in welcoming Father Chris and Father Luis to Sacred Heart.

Sacred Heart Church | Father Hess

Life at Sacred Heart Church has been very busy and full of change. On June 28, many dedicated and hardworking volunteers put together a celebration for Father Hess following the 4 pm Mass. After Mass, 700 people gathered to enjoy some great food and fellowship, and to thank Father Hess for everything he has done for Sacred Heart Parish and so many individual members of our community throughout his 15 years of service.
