Perpetual AdorationAdoration of Our Lord in the Eucharist in our Adoration Chapel can be a transforming experience.  Miracles of conversion for our children, peace for us, physical healings, and many other wonderful things happen where the Lord Jesus is adored in the Blessed Sacrament.

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, "the best time you will spend on earth is the time that you spend with your Best Friend Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."

Select one hour a week as your special time to be with Our Lord in a quiet place; no distractions, with only Jesus to speak to you.  Join with 330 other parishioners to experience putting Jesus in the center of your life for one holy hour.

The 330 parishioners have been scheduled on a prayer team.  There are 24 prayer teams; one for each hour of the day.  Members of the prayer team substitute for each other when necessary.  They all work together to make sure that someone is in the chapel each day at their hour.  Choose an hour that you can commit to. Sign-up forms are in the narthex on the Perpetual Adoration table.

Call Roger at 922-9190 for more information.
veteransLast spring there was a bulletin notice concerning the support of the Reintegration Program for Veterans at St. Francis House in Little Rock by the Village Knights of Columbus, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion and the Order of the Purple Heart.  The response was excellent as many parishioners, and their neighbors, came forth, (and still are) with clothing and personal hygiene items to support our Veterans.  A big thank you to all those who donated.

cropped-ar-march-for-life-header-img2The annual Mass and March for Life will take place Sunday, January 19, 2014 in Little Rock.  Bishop Anthony Taylor will celebrate the Mass for Life at 12:00 noon, in Robinson Exhibition Hall, located on the corner of Markham and Broadway.  Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the Rosary for Life will take place prior to the Mass, beginning at 11:00 a.m.

The 36th annual March for Life, sponsored by Arkansas Right for Life, begins at 2:00 p.m. at Capitol and Battery streets, behind the State Capitol building.  Sacred Heart of Jesus will be chartering a bus for the day, which will leave from the church parking lot at 9:30 a.m. and return at approximately 4:30 p.m.  If you wish to reserve a seat on the bus, please sign-up on the sheet located in the A & E hallway.  A separate sign-up sheet will be provided for carpooling.  If you need a ride or if you plan to drive and can take additional passengers, please sign the sheet and indicate how many you can accommodate.  If the bus is filled, we will arrange rides for all parishioners who want to go to Little Rock for this Pro-Life event.
