Farmers Market2We welcome Tom and Jamie Henry back to sell their wonderful produce here at Sacred Heart Church every Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in front of church. The Henry's will be here with peaches, blackberries and other fresh produce on Tuesday's during the growing season. Call extension 31 at the Church Office (922-2062) for related information.  Please make a note Tom and Jamie will be at Sacred Heart on Monday, July 3, not July 4, so they can observe the 4th with their family!
Gods Not Dead 2 posterJoin us to view "God's Not Dead 2" on Thursday, June 29, at 6:00 p.m. in the Lower Hall. When a high school history teacher is asked a question about Jesus in class, her reasoned response lands her in deep trouble.  The resulting court trial is suspenseful and exciting.  There will be refreshments.  Please join us and bring a friend.

Happy Birthday United States of America!  The event follows the Mass and Patriotic Rosary which will be at 10:30 a.m (NOT 9:00 a.m. - that day only).  Menu includes:  Grilled burgers and hot dogs, potato salad, cole slaw, baked beans, buns, condiments, Father Bill's ice cream, and beverages from the donation refreshment center.  Sign-up before or after Mass this weekend or next weekend.

Please mark your calendars to attend this special event honoring our seminarians.  Space will be limited.  All money donated will go directly to the Seminarian Fund.  This fund is the foundation for the education of our future priests who will be dedicated to upholding the principles and doctrines of our Catholic faith.  We would like to have you join us, mingle with the seminarians and special guests, and be a part of this special evening.  We have always had a lot of fun at this event with the seminarians in years past and this year promises to be equally enjoyable.
food basketWe will be delivering food baskets to needy families that have school-age children home for the summer.  It is an extra burden on some families when their chldren are home during the summer and do not eat breakfast and lunch at the school. The baskets will be paid for by the Sacred Heart Basket Fund and will be delivered between July 15 and July 25.  If you can deliver a basket to a family, please contact Ed Keearns, 922-3832, or transmit an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dinner TheaterBuilding on two prior years of outrageous fun, it's time to take action and mark your calendars. This years hilarious, action packed Dinner Theater will take place this September.  We are planning two evening venues (Friday 9/8 and Saturday 9/9).  We will also be introducing a Sunday Matinee (9/10) to round out our theater schedule. Auditions will be held in early August.  Interested members of the parish are invited to have fun and join our cast of characters.

Our first two years of SHJ Dinner Theater performances were all sell outs.  No doubt this year will produce the same outcome.  Detailed information on the play, the "who done It" concept, ticket sales, auditions and more will follow in the coming weeks via bulletins and parish web site.

Psst . . . . . . . . .this years venue will place our players in Mossy Bottom, Texas.  Fun . . . . . .oh yea!!

thank you 1The Parish Life Commission wishes to express their deepest appreciation and gratitude to the many parishioners involved in bidding Deacon Bernie and Marilyn a final farewell.  There are too many volunteers to list, but you all are so appreciated for helping celebrate this wonderful couple who have more than 27 years of service to this amazing parish. May God truly bless each and everyone. Memorable pictures are posted on :
pull tabThanks to everyone who donates "pull tabs!"  There have been a couple big bags and containers dropped off, and it is appreciated as we collect for Ronald McDonald House Charity.

Any soda or beer cans, pet food cans, vegetable, fruit and soup cans all could have the "pull tabs."  There is a box in the cabinets of the Administration and Education Hallway for you to place your tabs in anytime.  This effort is sponsored by the Ladies of the Sacred Heart, and we drop them off in Hot Springs.  Thanks again.
handandfootWe are fervently looking and hoping for someone to take over the Hand & Foot group. We are no longer able to do this. We have it set up to where it is not difficult to run, and will be happy to help out when we can.  There are a lot of fun-loving people who are participating in this group.  Call Cathy or Jerry Bertrand at 501-204-9088 for more information.
Label for EducationPlease save "Box Tops" and "Labels for Educaiton" found on many packaged foods and frozen foods in your grocery store.  "Box Tops" are worth a dime for schools and "Labels for Education" can be used towards the pruchase of classroom equipment.  Drop them in a container found in the narthex hall.
2 monthsYour baby's facial features continue to develop.  Each ear begins as a little fold of skin.  Tiny buds that eventually grow into arms and legs are forming.  Fingers, toes and eyes are also forming.  The neural tube (brain, spinal cord and other neural tissues of the central nervous system) is well formed.  Your baby's digestive tract begins to develop.  Bone starts to replace cartilage.  By the end of the second month, your baby is about one inch long and weighs about 1/30 of an ounce.  At about six weeks, your baby's heart beat can usually be detected.  Please continue to pray for your spiritually-adopted baby.
VeteransMy name is Becca Effrein and I am writing to reach out to your church.  I am a nurse practitioner with the Veterans Administration (VA) hospital out of Little Rock.  I work for Home Based Primary Care and I cover the Hot Springs Village area.

A little about our program.  We bring a primary care provider to the vereran instead of the veteran having to travel to the VA clinic for primary care services. We are like a mobile clinic on wheels and include a Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, social workers, occupational therapist, registered dietician, psychologist and pharmacist.  If you know of a veteran who would benefit from this service, please don't hesitate to reach out.  Our social worker can provide information and answer any questions.  Contact Becca Effrein at 1400 Malvern Avenue in Hot Springs, AR 71909, Office Telephone: 501-624-0700, Cell Phone: 501-412-0124, e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
