Sacred Heart Parish encourages parishioners and school families to be good stewards of God's gifts. Stewardship is a personal response to Jesus' call to follow Him and to do the work that He does.

How does one tithe his / her gifts?

  • Prayer - Spend time with God in daily prayer and at weekly Mass.
  • Participate - Participate in our parish ministries and events, helping bring other closer to Christ.
  • Generosity - Generously share your blessings with a grateful heart, knowing the Lord promises to richly bless you.

St. Paul tells us that "all of you are Christ's Body, and each one is a part of it." Sacred Heart Parish counts on every parishioner's financial support. Your tithing enables us to plan our annual budget, which directly affects how ministries occur and grow in our parish. Help us today with your gift to help support our mission. Tax-deductible donations can be made to both the Church and the School.
