January at Sacred Heart – Join Us January 21st and 24th
Sacred Heart Immersion Trip
Many of you have made New Year’s Resolutions. Hopefully, one of these resolutions is to grow spiritually. Volunteering at Sacred Heart Community Services is an excellent way to continue this commitment to your Spiritual Growth.
On January 21st, Holy Spirit Church will be sponsoring an Immersion Trip to Sacred Heart. We will meet at Sacred Heart at 9 a.m. and work until noon. Participants will be able to work in the Pantry, the Clothes Closet, Welcome Center, and Job Link. This is an excellent way to learn about some of the programs offered by Sacred Heart, and it is also an opportunity to help you determine if Sacred Heart would be an activity to add to your spiritual goals.
There is no obligation to sign up to volunteer, but many people later decide to spend some time once a week, every other week, or once a month serving the customers of Sacred Heart. Presently, there are openings for volunteers in Job Link, Clothes Closet, and the Welcome Center. Details on these openings are in the following article.
Saturday at Sacred Heart
A group of volunteers from Holy Spirit will be gathering at Sacred Heart Community Service on January 24th. This group is a combination of families with children of school age, teens, and adults. Children under 13 must be accompanied by at least one parent. Families like working together giving the example of living our faith, teens earn service hours while chatting with other teens, and adults enjoy meeting new people from the parish and other outreach organizations. Our volunteer shift begins at 9 a.m. and ends at noon. Your time will be well used; no one stands around at Sacred Heart—the time really flies by!
We are usually packing produce, assembling food bags, or sorting clothes for the Clothes Closet. Sacred Heart depends on the work of the Saturday volunteers in order to run the daily operation more smoothly. Without our help, the weekly routine just wouldn’t work well.
Sign–ups for both the Immersion Trip and Saturday at Sacred Heart will open on January 12th at 9 a.m.
