Volunteer Needed for Prayer Apostolate

The parish is seeking someone who would be interested in organizing a Prayer Apostolate for the parish. While we have one for those who are dying or have just died, we have a great need for prayers for the living. This would involve maintaining a phone list and notifying people via text or Remind of prayer requests. If interested, please contact Noelle at 616-459-8362 or parishoffice@shgr.org

Ways to Give to Sacred Heart

You may be new or visiting and are wondering where the collection baskets are! Instead of “passing the basket” during the offertory hymn, Sacred Heart has baskets at the back of church that you can put an envelope in which are collected after each Mass. Alternatively, you are welcome to give a one time or recurring donation via Faith Direct
at faithdirect.net. You needn’t be a parishioner to give online. If coins are at a premium in your household, as they are for many, an even better way to give to the church is through your time. Even big and busy families are able to give – bring the kids with you! Little hands are welcome and can have a big impact. Contact the parish office if you want to volunteer your time or talents!

A message from the Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus thank everyone for their donations to the Diaper Drive to benefit HELP Pregnancy Center. Over 3,000 diapers were collected, enough to fill their freight elevator nearly two times!

The CD rack at the back of the church has been updated with new titles by authors such as Dr. Edward Sri, Dr. Tim Gray, Dr. Scott Hahn, and Fr. Mike Schmitz. Take a minute and check out the newest additions to the offerings.

Feast on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart Celebration – June 24, starting with Latin Mass at 5:30pm

June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of our Lord. Join us for a celebration of our Patronal Feast on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart when we will be celebrating with a Traditional Latin Mass on Friday, June 24th at 5:30pm with a dessert reception in the courtyard to follow. The Consecration to the Sacred Heart will occur immediately following the Mass and families will have the opportunity to have their certificates filled out at the reception. If you have already consecrated your family to the Sacred Heart, there is no need to get another certificate but it is always good to renew that consecration.

Please go here to sign up to help and/or to bring a dessert: SIGN UP GENIUS

Why have a devotion to the Sacred Heart? Over the centuries, the Catholic Church has grown in understanding the worship of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Many people have discovered in the contemplation of the open heart a valid way to identify themselves completely with Christ and to live the call to holiness.

The contemplation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus opens nowadays new paths to holiness in the Church. It can be presented to men and women of our time in need of divine mercy as a message of hope so that “In this way, […] on the ruins accumulated through hatred and violence, the civilization of love so greatly desired can be built, the kingdom of the Heart of Christ” (John Paul II, message to the Superior General of the Jesuits, P. Peter Hans Kolvenbach, 5/X/1986).

The consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ is an act in which we want to fix our eyes on Jesus Christ, so that he helps us to live “planted and built up in Jesus Christ, firm in faith” (Col 2:7).

As the church was born out of the pierced heart of Jesus, we do well to contemplate the pierced heart of Our Lord; the love which emanates from His pierced heart which leads us all on our mission to proclaim love, salvation, redemption and eternal life.
