For at least 68 Children, Christmas is not about stacks of gifts under the tree, if there is one.
Its not about the latest electronic gadget or game, when your cold or hungry
For 167 adults, Christmas is about being fed in the body & spirit & knowing there will be food for at least a few more weeks
A wonderful group of people that gave so generously to those in need
For 10 years we have had the JOY and Honor of co-chairing the Advent Project at Sacred Heart. The love and generosity of the parish has moved us to tears every year. Nothing was more rewarding than the night before delivery & the visual gift of Sacred Heart being Jesus to the community.
EVERY year, the Advent Project ran on FAITH & integrity with the funds donated. We came to the painful realization we can no longer in good conscience continue to participate in the program when the parish staff chose to use what should have been a “joyful giving” as a “fundraiser”for the church.
When all was delivered, with our adult children and grandchildren, we left knowing it was our last year to participate and the last day as members of the the parish.
Sometimes growth and knowledge is painful but necessary. But for the first time in months, Larry & I are sleeping through the night, knowing we did the right thing.
So, the gate is open, coffee is fresh and bread is baking so stop in for a chat.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
