FORMED is a means of continuing parish sacramental programs and religious education not only during a time of being partially homebound but also when we can all be together again. In addition, it can be used to strengthen all levels of religious education as well as other parish ministries, especially in its ability to be used to reach out to and involve the parents.
Registering for FORMED is easier than ever:
1. Go to formed.org/signup
2. Select our parish by entering name, city and/or zip code
3. Register with your name and email address
4. Check that email account for a link to begin using FORMED

American Sonnets for my Past and Future Assassin by Terrance Hayes
American Sonnets . . . is particularly relevant as we get closer to this year's election, as it was written in the aftermath of the 2016 election, and was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2018 (as well as shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot prize in 2018).
Basilica of the Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church are teaming up to present a JustFaith program entitled Faith and Racial Justice: Changing Systems and Structures. You are invited to join a community of Christians who want to discern the roots of racial injustice and to address ways to overcome it. LaRoyce Morgan (Lourdes) and Richard Parry (Sacred Heart) will co-facilitate the nine weekly sessions, to be conducted via Zoom. Sessions will last about an hour and a half and will start on September 10, at 6:30. You can find out more about Faith and Racial Justice by visiting JustFaith.org. In addition, you can sign-up for the program at https://forms.gle/uhjTZRS3F64FRuCo6 or at https://bit.ly/FaithRacial

STREET PARKING NOTICE
There are only three designated parking spaces on Peachtree Center Avenue directly in front of the church and rectory. These spaces are legal only on Sunday mornings, and they are the only areas where it is legal to park. The other areas are painted with stripes and are no parking zones, reserved for emergency vehicles. In the past, people have parked in these striped areas with no repercussions; however, that is no longer true. If you park in these striped areas, you are risking a ticket. Remember, Sacred Heart does have free parking in the lot in back. Please remember to validate your parking ticket in the vestibule of the church.
