What's Happening

Knights of Columbus Omelet Breakfast will be held on Sunday January 26, 2019 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. for the Catholic Schools Week kickoff. Please join us in supporting Sacred Heart Schools for a free will donation and great omelets! Sacred Grapes & Grounds: Sacred Grounds is taking on a new look for 2019-2020. We will be adding fellowship in the gathering space after Saturday’s 4:00p.m. Mass, starting about 4:45p.m. and after Sunday’s 10:30a.m. Mass, starting about 11:30a.m.

To sign-up to host, click here! Most, if not all, the dates are the first weekend of each month between October-April. Please see below for the fellowship schedule. We will provide wine, beer, and water with light snacks on Saturday evenings. On Sunday mornings, we will provide coffee, juice, and a sweet. The host couple/family/group will be responsible for putting these items out and cleaning up after each fellowship gathering. The host couple/family/group is responsible for hosting Sacred Grounds. Should we not have volunteers, the gathering for that day will be cancelled. Groups that may be interested in hosting include: Families, Teachers/Staff, Archery Club, Math Bee Students, Knights of Columbus, CDA Members, Funeral Circle Members, Faith Formation Classes & Catechists, Choirs, Liturgical Roles (Ushers, Greeters), etc.

Hosting involves: putting out beverages (wine/beer), making coffee and juice; setting out the snacks/sweets; greeting parishioners who attend Sacred Grapes & Grounds; and light clean-up. You should plan to arrive at 3:30p.m. for Saturday set-up and 10:00a.m. for Sunday set-up. In the past, Sacred Grapes & Grounds lasted about an hour, however, with the new Mass times we will be playing things by ear this year.
