The 8th Annual HopeFest Arizona will be held Saturday, September 28 on the Courthouse Square. Sacred Heart will have a table this year and join businesses, organizations and other churches to help meet the needs of our neighbors including veterans, active military, first responders and the vulnerable of Yavapai County. We hope to be part of making a tangible difference to our community. Sacred Heart’s table will be active from 10am-4pm. Please take time to come down to the Square to support this event.
The next Light of the World Retreat is scheduled for September 21 and 22, 2019. This year’s retreat will only be two days instead of four.

The cost for the entire weekend is just $25 and scholarships are available. You can sign up in the Parish Office. There will also be representatives present after all the Masses on the weekend of September 7-8. If you have any questions, please contact Mike Daniel at 928-910-1506. We hope to see you there.
