WELCOME TO SACRED HEART!

EARTHQUAKE IN PETRINJA, CROATIA

A strong earthquake in Croatia destroyed buildings and killed a number of people Tuesday southwest of the capital Zagreb, displacing scores of area residents or making them afraid to sleep indoors as emergency teams searched for those still missing. It caused widespread damage in the hardest-hit town of Petrinja. Cries could be heard from underneath destroyed houses. Emergency teams used rescue dogs in the search for survivors, while family members looked on in despair. The town was left without electricity or running water as officials scrambled to set up temporary accommodation for all of the displaced residents in need. The biggest part of central Petrinja is in a red zone, which means that most of the buildings are not usable.

Financially we have been hit hard due to this COVID-19 pandemic since we depend upon your weekly donation and there are no public weekly masses. 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. This allows your continued support to the parish during the unforeseen circumstances such as the one we have now. You can still donate via computer or tablet as well.

TAX CREDIT & MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM

TaxesThe State of Illinois created a tax credit scholarship program through the “Invest in Kids” Act that is mutually beneficial to students and donors. It provides a 75 percent Illinois State income tax credit to individuals who contribute money to fund scholarships for students to attend private schools. Eligible students from low-income families in Illinois may use these scholarships to attend a non-public school of their choice, including Sacred Heart School. For every dollar donated to this program through Empower Illinois between Dec. 1, 2020 and Feb. 28, 2021 and designated to a school operated by the Archdiocese of Chicago will be matched with two dollars from a matching pool....Click here for more information

PRAYER OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

Holy Communion(Prayer for those viewing Mass over electronic media and are not able to receive Communion)

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen
