Arts & Environment
The Arts and Environment Ministry helps to create and preserve a prayerful and welcoming environment and encourage a peaceful spirit-filled Sanctuary.
The Art and Environment Committee is a group of parishioners who combine their gifts and work together to carry out the task of preparing and decorating for the parish liturgical celebrations.
The Sacred Heart Church Food Pantry serves hungry families of Sacred Heart Parish and the surrounding community at all times of the year. Our ministry's mission is to provide food for the needy. All donations of food, cash contributions, and the 120 Club proceeds are combined in supporting this worthwhile ministry.
The Sacred Heart Church Food Pantry is managed by a group of volunteer parishioners who, without compensation of any kind, try to meet the needs of as many individuals as possible.
Volunteers on this committee:
acquire food items from various, identified sources
restock the pantry shelves
assemble grocery bags for weekly distribution to area residents in need
assist in preparing & distributing Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets
