Each Sunday, we take a collection for the host parish. It is our way of supporting the local Catholic Church and helps the expenses of hosting our parish.
STEWARDSHIP is important, and your gifts of time, talent, and money are critical for the work of Jesus Christ. Please consider a personal pledge of Stewardship of time, talent, and money….
Time – The parish has no staff and needs your time for all the regular ministries: preparation for sacraments, Christian education and formation, Church social life, visits to the suffering; the needs are big, but the people of God can address them with their gift of time.
Talent – Your priest pays close attention to the Word of God and the basics of Church life and order. Others who have skills – with speaking, with leadership, with organization, with children, with money, with the poor and suffering, with music, with communication, with the internet, with young people, with driving, with hospitality, with our ethnic groups (Indian, Filipino, Sri Lankan, others), with social life —- all these skills are used for the glory of God and for the good of the people. Too often, we think, “Let Father take care of that…..” Not so – the members are the ones. Give of your talent, and God will reward!
Money — Sacred Heart Parish has no regular or special sources of financial support, and the Jesuits provide a priest at no expense to the parishioners. So, the parish relies on a MONTHLY SECOND COLLECTION for its expenses. The Second Collection for our parish takes place on the Second Sunday of each month. Please be generous!
