We sincerely thank everyone who is participating in our Renew & Rejoice Campaign, which was a huge sucess in making beautiful updates to our worship space. We are humbled by the outpouring of commitment and the energy of the parishioners working together as a community of faith to raise over $3M for our campaign! We have had an amazing response from Sacred Heart Parishioners, friends of the parish, and businesses in our community. More than 155 disciples of Christ have volunteered their time and talents to make our campaign a success, while nearly 450 people have donated or pledged.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks to everyone who prayed for our campaign, everyone who volunteered, and everyone who made a donation or who may choose to contribute in the future. We trust that God will provide for each of us to fulfill our pledges in the coming years. Please know that there is still room for those who haven’t had a chance to respond. We will continue to accept donations and pledges for the restoration.
