Flu shotMark your calendars!  For your convenience, there will be both flu and pneumonia vaccines available in the Sacred Heart of Jesus A & E classrooms before and after the 5:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday, October 4, and before and after the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Masses on Sunday. October 5.  The staff will also be available during the Masses.  This year, the Quadravalant flu vaccine will be offered.  If you are thinking about getting the pneumonia vaccine, the staff will want to know when you last received one.

Medicare pays 100% for both vaccines.  Medicare recipients must show their Medicare card. Although not required, a driver's license would be helpful for completing the required forms. Individuals who do not have Medicare can purchase the vaccines with their insurance cards.

4 month fetusYour baby is in its fourth month and measures nearly five inches from head to buttocks and has learned to breathe. This is apparent from the regular movements of his chest, inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid. These actions help the lungs to develop and grow. More developed facial muscles may lead to various expressions, such as squinting and frowning.  The baby hears external voices, sleeps and dreams, can grasp with his hands, kick, or even somersaults.  Please continue to pray for this special child of God.
