2018 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Reminder: please remember to complete your pledge. Additionally, we are still short of our goal that is assigned to our parish and if you have not made a pledge, please prayerfully consider making a pledge. If we do not reach our goal, we will need to make up the difference from our offertory gifts which is seriously needed to meet the operational needs of the parish.
Dear Friends of Sacred Heart,
At the recommendation of your Parish Council, I am publishing on this website an update to the Archbishop’s Pastoral Plan for the Archdiocese. This update includes all the steps and initiatives that we at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus have made to incorporate the Pastoral Plan into our programs and pastoral initiatives.
You may find it encouraging that many of the recommendations of the Plan were already a part of our current operation here at the Basilica. We have also revised some aspects of our Faith Formation program and are currently working on several areas of our communications with you, especially in the electronic media. As you can see, we also have some areas of growth that are in process and we value your assistance and volunteering to make them happen.
I welcome your comments, thoughts and suggestions as we continue together to grow our Basilica family.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Msgr. Edward J. Thein, Rector
Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan
