BabyThe babies we "spiritually" adopted back in April are due to be born January 8, 2014.  To welcome them into the world, we are planning a Parish Baby Shower.  All parishioners are invited to participate.  Please purchase a baby item and bring it to the church, UNWRAPPED, beginning Saturday, January 4, and no later than Monday, January 13.  The Ladies of the Sacred Heart can consider this their "something extra" for January, and bring the gifts to the general meeting.

A display area will be set up in the narthex where the gifts can be left.  The donated items will be sorted and then delivered to Catholic Adoption Services and local Pregnancy Help Centers in Hot Springs, Benton and Malvern, based on need.  Disposable diapers (all sizes), are always welcome along with crib sheets, blankets, clothing for preemies up to 18 months, powders, bath items, bottles, and just about anything else that parents would need for a newborn baby.  Please DO NO WRAP your gift.
