Wednesday PIE 4.10.19

April 10, 2019

  • As we approach Holy Week, let us point our hearts and minds on the week “set apart”. Let us take time for spiritual renewal through the suffering, death, and Resurrection of our Lord.  This week has many opportunities for us to declutter our minds and unload our burdens.  What a wonderful time to spend with our families at the altar of our faith.  All-powerful, Eternal God, You have chosen to give mankind a model of humility; our Savior took on our flesh, and subjected Himself to the Cross. Grant us the grace to preserve faithfully the lessons He has given us in his Passion and to have a share in His resurrection. This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen   ~ catholiconline.org
  • “AND THEY’RE OFF!” We need horses for our Night of the Races! Please consider sponsoring a horse for $10. Don’t forget to give it a special name! Winning horses will return $50.  So send in your horses today! Thank you for supporting our HSA! Forms are in the attachment of the PIE.   
  • GIDDY UP! Sacred Heart School’s HSA will be hosting our annual Night at The Races in April 27th. This is the HSA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, allowing us to give back to the school by funding the salary of a specials teacher. Horses will be available for purchase in the coming weeks and betting windows will be open during the event.  Night at The Races has become a highly anticipated event in the school year and is always a GREAT time.  So… save the date and watch the bulletin for more details on this exciting event to support our wonderful school.  We look forward to seeing you there!
  • SPECIAL FIELD TRIP FOR GRADES 5-8.  We have confirmed a bus through J &J Travel for a special field trip to attend Mass at St. Clare of Assisi to visit the Relic of the Heart of St. John Vianney next Friday, April 12.   Because Sacred Heart Parish will be assisting with subsidizing this cost of the bus, students/chaparones will only need to pay $5.00.  Permission slips went home today with your children.  Please send in forms and money as soon as possible. Student may bring devotional items such as rosaries, medals, missal, etc. to touch the relic of St. John Vianney’s heart; it will become a 3rd class relic.  Thank you.
