Have you been feeling down since Wild Game night was cancelled? Then you won’t want to miss Sacred Heart’s Hog Wild – A Sportsman’s Dinner! Our evening of men’s fellowship comes complete with a delicious pig roast dinner, raffle prizes and icy cold brew! Consider purchasing a private table of 8 and invite your outdoor enthusiast male friends and youth (12 and up) to come swap stories of the ones that got away and the ones that didn’t. If you loved attending previous Men’s Wild Game Dinners, then don’t hesitate and pick up your tickets now–they will likely sell out FAST!
Hog Wild will be held in the Sacred Heart courtyard.
Saturday, July 17 from 6pm until 10pm.
- Ticket Price: $25
- Table of 8 – $200
For the year of St. Joseph we are honoring him with flowers in front of his statue weekly. If you would like to participate, please sign up here or call the church office at 459-8362. When you bring in flowers, feel free to replace what’s in the vase already or bring your own vase to add to the current flowers. You are responsible for your own vase. Thank you!
For 45 years, the federal Hyde Amendment has received bipartisan support. Now members of Congress want to eliminate this amendment which means your taxpayer dollars could end up supporting elective abortions. Read Bishop Walkowiak’s letter on page 6 and sign this petition and tell Congress that your taxpayer dollars should NOT support abortion: www.NoTaxpayerAbortion.com
On Friday, June 11th, we will be celebrating not only our patronal Feast of the Sacred Heart but the Retirement of Fr. Sirico as well. He will be celebrating the solemnity with an Extraordinary Form Mass at 5:30pm followed by Consecration to the Sacred Heart. Immediately after, everyone is invited to the tent on the corner of Valley and Dayton where we will have food and drinks and celebrate Fr. Sirico’s immense impact upon our parish and community. If you wish to assist in any way, please contact the parish office.
We are in need of people willing to lector at the weekend and weekday Masses. If you are interested in being trained for this important ministry, please call the church office at 459-8362.

In keeping with the most recent CDC guidance, the Diocese of Grand Rapids is revising diocesan directives regarding masks and social distancing in its parishes. Masks are no longer required during liturgical worship. It is recommended that those who are unvaccinated follow CDC guidance and wear a mask for the safety of fellow parishioners. A section at the back of the church has been roped off for those wishing to social distance.
