Baby bottleIn support of the pro-live movement, our Church will be participating in “The Baby Bottle Project” in October benefiting the Women’s Centers of Greater Chicago land. This non-profit organization directly assists mothers and families experiencing crisis pregnancies by offering emotional, financial, material and spiritual support through counseling, clothing and monetary provisions, prayer and other aid. Please take a Baby Bottle home with you, fill it with your spare change over the next three weeks, and return it the weekend of October 30th or November 6th. This is a simple but crucial fundraising effort for the Women’s Centers. Thank you for helping defend life, and remember to keep all pro-life undertakings in your prayers, especially during this Respect Life Month.

We ask that you please continue to support Sacred Heart in any way that you can. It might be more convenient to do it electronically. You can set it up to make automatic withdrawals and it will make your contribution to our parish on a regular basis or you can make a one time contribution.
