During the difficult times of the pandemic, it is easy to overlook the wonderful things still happening in our Church. The difficulties experienced during the pandemic have inspired people to be more generous and compassionate and to help the Church continue to thrive.
Sacred Heart has been offered a unique opportunity by a generous Catholic family from outside of our parish. This family selected a few parishes within the Diocese of Phoenix to benefit from their gift and Sacred Heart is one of those parishes chosen! This family will match, dollar-for-dollar, every new monthly on-line gift or any increased monthly on-line gift to Sacred Heart up to the total amount of $43,230. The new gift or increased gift must be made between the time period of June 1, 2020 – August 31, 2020. So, for example, if you are already giving on-line, and you increase your giving by even $1.00 per week, the increase will be matched!
Over the next few weeks, we will have additional bulletin and website articles explaining how on-line giving works and how to enroll if you are not already giving on-line.
On the weekend of July 18-19, we will distribute a flyer with more details about this gift and how you can help Sacred Heart receive the full benefit of these funds. The designated use of these funds will be for evangelization including, but not limited to: covering the full cost of all retreats so that parishioners can attend for free; bringing in well-known inspirational speakers and programs at no cost to parishioners; and bringing some exciting evangelization programs to our youth ministry and our school students.
God bless you all for your continued support of our Parish. If you have immediate questions, please call the office and speak to the Parish Manager.
