Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Community!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

We all want to know what our lives are really all about. God steps into human history in a radically unprecedented way in Jesus of Nazareth. In doing so, God addresses directly the most urgent and pressing concerns we have and reveals; God is real. God loves us crazy. Human existence doesn’t end in annihilation. Suffering can have glorious significance and consequences. God wants us all to come together as one universal loving family on earth and in heaven. Of course, how this all plays out in our own particularly unique circumstances is vast and varied. We all struggle daily, terribly so at times. The help and consolation of faith packs a mighty punch to knock out the darkness time and time again. That is the true reality of the Paschal Mystery we celebrate at every mass. The Light of Christ overtaking and replacing the darkness in all things. May this Light and Love wash over our minds and hearts like never before through the Glorious and Sacred Heart of Jesus. God Bless you all for keeping the Faith and the beautiful ways you do. May this Faith always be your greatest source of courage and strength.     

Happy Easter!

Love, your friend,

Fr. Steve

MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
There are many ministries we are planning on re-activating when we are                     
back to normal masses.

  •    Lectors
  •    Ushers / Welcoming Ministers
  •    Extraordinary Ministers
  •    Music Ministry
  •    Altar Servers
  •    Coffee Hour
  •    Rosary Sodality
  •    CCD Teachers / Volunteers
  •    Pastoral Ministry

  •    Friends of St. Vincent de Paul

If you would like to be part of any of these ministries, please call  the rectory at (413)443-6960
and your name will be put on the list to be called.  If you can think of any other potential
ministry groups, please let us know. Sacred Heart Parish is also looking for people who are willing to spend time with homebound parishioners  who are lonely, elderly, suffering, or sick. You don’t need to have a professional background, but you  do need a willingness to listen, be empathetic,
and offer reassurance that our  community has not forgotten  them. Sacred Heart will train you
to visit these people in their home, in the hospital or in a nursing home and take them the 
Eucharist (if they desire that) Call the rectory at(413)443-6960 

E-Mail Address: Today more than ever, it is important to strengthen our communication within our parish. On-line and digital engagement provides us a wonderful opportunity to provide on-going, timely and important communications. Please help us develop a stronger connection to you, by simply submitting your  e-mail address to: pinkchurch@aol.com

Prayer Line: We are in need of people to pray for our prayer line intentions. This is so
easy to do, and perfect for this time of isolation. We have a prayer line every week or so.
You can receive a list either by phone or e-mail, of the first names and their prayer
request. All we ask is that you pray for these people and their intentions. If interested,
please call Nancy McGill at (413)443-6942 or e-mail  nancyvgm904@gmail.com.
