Happy August! When we think about the many blessings in our lives, do we remember to also say thank you to God for the gift of our church? Consider the teaching, the healing, and comforting we receive through practicing our faith together. Do we ponder the joy of worshiping together as people of God? Our church gives us the gifts of being part of something greater than ourselves and of knowing that we have a place to connect with God and each other as a community of faith.
A parish-wide feasibility study is underway to obtain your feedback about the plans to address current and future needs. All registered parishioners were mailed information about the proposed first step of our plan to continue a strong Catholic presence for the future in Gladwin. Registered parishioners have been asked to either complete a survey or to personally meet with a member of The Breton Group for a confidential interview.
The need to minister to our current parishioners, as well as encourage and welcome newcomers, has been at the forefront of our church master planning and ensures we proactively continue a vibrant Catholic ministry. Whether you complete a survey or personally interviewed, we confidentially welcome everyone’s opinions.
Please take this opportunity very seriously so we can continue making wise decisions. Let’s all continue to pray that Gods’ will be done at Sacred Heart Catholic Parish.
“Thank you Lord for the gift of my church which brings me closer to you and to my brothers and sisters in faith. Shower your graces and Spirit upon this congregation as we continue your work. Guide us in the sharing of our time in prayer, talent in ministry, and financial resources to further your work through this church.”Amen
