The Village Interfaith Council invites members of all churches in the Village to attend an ecumenical program, Gospel Without Borders. This documentary film helps churches and participants rediscover the Bible's moral message and learn compelling stories about Christians of goodwill. The event will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. in the Lower Hall of Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church. Pastor, Father Bill Elser, welcomes all Villagers to come to the presentation. Refreshments will be served. The program will start with the viewing of a 31-minute film "Gospel Without Borders", followed by a panel discussion of prominent ecumenical leaders including the Most Reverend Anthony B. Taylor, Bishop of Little Rock and the Reverend Stephen J. Copley, Executive Director of Arkansas Interfaith Alliance.
Gospel Without Borders puts a human face on the issue of immigration. It separates myth from fact, examines what the Bible says about treatment of the "stranger". It provides information for people of faith as they continue their quest for understanding and resolution for this matter. The documentary highlights stories in five states: Arizona, Arkansas, North Carolina, Alabama and Iowa. Each story has its own message, but they all come together and show that the Christian gospel is indeed without borders. For more information about Gospel Without Borders, go to:

The League had 12 teams with 4 members to a team and plenty of subs. Many of the members were more than a little rusty after many years of not bowling before starting up again in their retirement. The purpose of the League when Fr. Bill started it: "Have Fun". Indeed, that is what they do! Each week on Thursdays at 2 p.m. at Fiesta Bowl, beginning back in September, the members shared in good camaraderie, a ton of laughter and a spirit of friendship. They ended the season with their Bowling Dinner and Awards Banquet on April 10 in the Lower Hall with catering by Daily Dish from Hot Springs.

Parishioners Assist At Habitat Apostle Build Site
Click here to view additional pictures in the photo album.On Tuesday, April 9, Sacred Heart Parish was well represented at the Habitat Apostle Build work site. Sixteen parishioners (8 Knights of Columbus) performed various functions. One of the first jobs was sweeping out the house interior and removing trash so that all studs could be marked on the floor. This is needed for drywallers and trim workers later in the build. All windows were installed, roof decking was installed on the shed and covered with roofing felt. Gutter soffit was installed on the house and some worked to separate and organize nails, screws and roofing clips. It was an impressive work session. Because of the bad weather forecast, the Wednesday work session was cancelled. Workers will be notified as to our next work rotation.

If you have an interest in playing, please sign the sheet in the narthex with your name, e-mail address, and phone numbers. When we get a head count, we will e-mail you with more information.
