14th Annual Baby Bottle Boomerang

 

Baby Bottle Boomerang
Fill it up and help the unborn

 

The Sacred Heart Knights are proud to open our 14th annual Baby Bottle Boomerang on the weekend of September 8 and 9. Watch for the Knights after each weekend Mass to pick up your baby bottle. Over the last 13 years, through the generosity of Sacred Heart parish, we have raised over $25,000 to support HELP Pregnancy Crisis Aid. 2017 Boomerang details are available here.

Thank You Mom Campaign Results

Thank you to all our supporters at Sacred Heart who helped the Knights collect just over 2500 diaper and other baby supplies during this year’s Thank You Mom campaign. This brings our four year total to just under 13,000 diapers.  We greatly appreciate your help in supporting babies after they are born. We received the following note from the director of HELP Pregnancy.

To Fr. Sirico, Knights of Columbus and the Parish of Sacred Heart~

Thank you for your generosity in celebrating Mother’s Day with your Thank you MOM Diaper Drive. Diapers are the #1 baby essential, they are so important in our mission to moms and babies in our community. In 2017, to the present moment, HELP has given away 82,632 diapers, because of your thoughtful support we can meet this need with love and compassion. Great job putting words into action for LIFE!

May the blessings you bestow on us return to you a hundredfold.

Paula Veneklase, Director

HELP Pregnancy Crisis Aid  

Saluting Fathers

In this time of crisis, with religious faith and family life under attack, faithful Catholic men are needed to heed Jesus’ call to do His work. Men are called to act as strong leaders, showing their family the importance of living their religion. The Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus would like to thank all the dads in our parish for everything they do. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to all fathers who might consider joining our brotherhood. As a Knight of Columbus you serve the parish and our academy in many ways and are a visible example to your children and others in the parish that men play a critical and dynamic role in the faith of their families and of the parish community. Happy Father’s Day!

Proud to Support Our Seminarians
