We received the following note from the director of HELP Pregnancy.

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

HELP Pregnancy Crisis Aid
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!
