OUR SACRED HEART PARISH VISION
OUR SACRED HEART MISSION GROUPS
Welcome the Community – The intent of this group is to reach out to those who may have lost contact, who do not yet know of us, or who are visiting us, to help understand who and what we are. Within this is a fundamental element of hospitality – but it is not ‘donuts’. We are seeking connection on a spiritual level. Sign up to be a part of the Welcome mission!
Worship Together – This group is chartered with all things Liturgical. It encompasses the environment, the Altar Society, music, the Ministers for Mass, and all special prayers such as Adoration and Taize. Sign up to be a part of the Worship Mission!
Grow our Catholic Faith – The focus here is to help educate and form the entire community. Through this group we implement the family faith formation programs, sacramental preparation, parish retreats and missions, and F.I.R.E national speaker series. The first two items are typically geared toward families with school-age children. The addition three are meant to be for the entire parish community. Sign up to be a part of the Grow Mission!
Build our Parish Family – These activities are geared toward growing the sense of who we are as a Christian community. They include our various social groups, such as the Men’s Club, Women’s Club, YLI (Young Ladies Institute – which is an external organization but directs much of its work toward our Sacred Heart – the host parish). Our Men’s Club hosts our annual Palm Sunday pancake breakfast, a Cioppino Dinner, typically a large concert and a host of other activities. They maintain the vineyard and produce our sacramental wine. The women’s club has a large Boutique they sponsor each year. The focus of this discipleship is internal, meant to grow us spiritually, through fun and fundraising activities. Sign up to be a part of the Build Mission!
Act as Christians in the World – This group focuses on Social Concerns, charity and justice. Through this group we offer prayer opportunities to unite us with other organizations and churches in acts which impact the world external of our parish. Within this group we are very active in the Sacred Heart Community Services, developing a relationship with West Valley Services, Martha’s Kitchen, Casa de Clara, 40 Days for Life, and various points of activism regarding Life issues. Sign up to be a part of the Act Mission!
Sacred Heart School – Our parish school remains one of our main formations of discipleship. Developed toward integrating teaching, the children learn course curriculum through the lens of our Catholic Christian faith tradition. This is true for both those who are baptized Catholic, as well as other faith traditions. The school children attend Mass weekly. They are encouraged to be altar servers, members of the choir, and occupy other roles during the Thursday and Sunday class Masses. Sign up to be a part of the School Mission!
