Dear Parents,

 

I trust all of you  had a wonderful Thanksgiving long weekend. Working and living in this community, with committed staff, supportive parents and wonderful children is something I give thanks for each and every day.

We have been blessed with beautiful weather this week, which makes the soccer games much more enjoyable. However, as the days become shorter, and darker and inevitably, the rain sets in I would like to remind you to please use caution when driving your children to school and picking up at the end of the day. The safety of our children is the main concern of us all.

 

God Bless,

 

Kelly Kozack

Principal

Liturgy of the Word with Children (LWC) :  For families with young children - Did you know that Sacred Heart Parish offers a special program for you during the Sunday morning Masses? In the Liturgy of the Word With Children, kids ages 4 and up are taken to a special area of the Church at the start of Mass.

They learn about the weekly Gospel readings in a simplified, age appropriate manner and are taught about the meaning of different elements of the Mass. Through songs, games and crafts, children are able to access the Word of the Lord in ways they can understand. Please take advantage of this program on Sunday mornings at both 9:00 and 11:00 masses. Children are called down by the Priest at the start of Mass, and return to their seats with you prior to Communion.

This program is run by a team of volunteer leaders. If you have a passion for teaching and sharing God’s message, we would love to have you join our team! We are always looking for new people to join this Ministry. You can commit to as few as 4 sessions a year, or as many as you like! Please contact Jennifer Kettlewell, LWC Coordinator, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like more information about joining the LWC team.
