Let’s work together to help the hurting, the homeless, and the hungry in our hometown. Sacred Heart parishioners have many opportunities to provide time, talent, and treasure to this ministry. What a wonderful way to share our Catholic faith in the community.
Are you being called to:
  • SUPPORT Family Promise by VOLUNTEERING with fellow parishioners at our partner church Bearden United Methodist by preparing a meal, offering fellowship at dinner, and overseeing the families during the night? Three or four times a year Bearden United Methodist houses 2 – 5 families at their facility for a week at a time. Sacred Heart provides meals, fellowship, and supervision during these stays.
  • PROVIDE Welcome and/or Going Home BASKETS for the clients as they either enter the program and then graduate to sustainable housing? These baskets include both personal hygiene and household items.
  • PURCHASE back-to-school supplies for one or more children in the program?
Please contact Katie Holvey for information on how you can help!!
