May IN-PERSON Family Faith Sessions This Week!

Our May Family Faith Meetings are scheduled for this week of May 22. We are planning our Family Faith Sessions to be In-Person. Since the weather is forecasted to be hot this week, our sessions will take place both inside the Sacred Heart Church and Hall. Even if it rains, we will still meet in person since we planned the activities indoors. Please come to this event with your family (do not plan to drop off your child or allow children to attend alone).


During our May Family Faith In-Person Session, we will share family activities related to Pentecost. Sessions will be approximately 60 minutes. Below are details about our May In-Person Session. We can't wait to see you then!


Structure of this In-Person Family Faith Event

This In-Person Session will be set up for families to participate in different activities through two stations. Throughout the session, families will rotate to different stations, participating in the various activities.


What are the Dates and Times of our In-Person Session?

Sessions will be approximately one hour:

  • Sunday Morning Session: Sunday, May 22 at 11:15AM-12:15PM (Following 10:00AM Mass)
  • Sunday Afternoon Session: Sunday, May 22 at 4:00PM-5:00PM
  • Wednesday Session: Wednesday, May 25 at 5:30PM-6:30PM
  • Thursday Session: Thursday, May 26 at 5:30PM-6:30PM

*So that we can plan accordingly, please attend the session your family is registered.


What if it rains?

Since this month's Family Faith Sessions will be In-Person, indoors, in both the Sacred Heart Church and Hall, we will meet rain or shine. The morning of your session, an email will be sent confirming that day's Family Faith session.


What do we need to bring?

Nothing!! Be ready to participate and enjoy the time with your family!


Will there be any Zoom Meetings this week?

Since we are meeting indoors where it is temperature controlled, there will not be any Zoom Meetings this week. Remember to check your email the morning of class for any important updates!


This is a FAMILY Faith Event

This In-Person Session is a FAMILY event. Please come with your family. Parents, do not drop off or allow children to attend this event alone.

mass readings for sunday, May 22: Sixth Sunday of Easter

In the last evening Jesus spends with the disciples before His death, He tries to show them two elements of reality that are difficult to hold together. Jesus' message to the disciples was:


He is going away, however, He will not leave them orphaned.


Jesus’ death is imminent, but His concern is for the disciples rather than Himself. Jesus reassures them that they will not be alone, and promises them peace.


Jesus offers hope not only to His immediate disciples, but also to all who love Him and keep His word. Over 2000 years later, we still understand Jesus' message to us. We know we can not be in His physical presence, but we are open to a deeper way of being in a relationship with Him.

Uplift Video of the Week!

Athlete runner loses her shoe, but wins the race!

A seven year old runner named, Lay Lay, has become an internet sensation since this video went viral showing her participating in a 200m running race. The video shows Lay Lay starting her race at the start-point, but looses her shoes while running! She then goes back to the start-point, puts on her shoe, gathers her strength and finally wins the race by being the first to the end line!
