The Pastor’s Corner



We are in the midst of our capital campaign to build a gym for the Academy and the parish as well as for refurbishing the multipurpose room. We are also looking at asbestos removal from the Academy kitchen so that it can be fully utilized. We are also examining some changes in the Muldowney Hall kitchen as well.

As of this writing (Wednesday, November 19th) we have $776,000 pledged toward our $2 million goal. Over the next few weeks, please place your pledge envelope in any collection. It will be separated out by the counters. The campaign will enable us to expand and renovate our parish facilities as our parish continues to grow.

January marks the 1-year anniversary of the Faith Direct e-Giving program. A letter will be sent to everyone who is registered at Sacred Heart and St. Bridget’s with the 2015 Diocesan Offertory schedule. For those already using Faith Direct, you do not need to do anything to continue your contributions. For others, it is your opportunity to enroll in the Faith Direct e-Giving program. Also, there will be monthly and quarterly categories for making payments to the Sacred Heart Capital Campaign for the new gymnasium and Academy improvements. As one senior parishioner remarked to me when we started Faith Direct, “Welcome to the twenty-first century ”

Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. As is our custom, we will have only one Mass at Sacred Heart at 10 am and one Mass at St. Bridget’s also at 10 am. Food and money collected at Sacred Heart will be split between the Knights of Columbus Soup Kitchen and CCAP. Food and money collected at St. Bridget’s will go to FISH of Clarke County. This is an opportunity to thank the Lord for all the blessings we have received, especially that of being part of a growing faith filled parish.

May the Lord bless you all.



In Our Lord

Father Stan Krempa
