Sacred Heart Scholarship

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our Holy Name Society, Sacred Heart is able to offer scholarships to our graduating seniors. The award will be given at the parish family Pancake Breakfast on May 31st following the 8:00 am Mass.

The Scholarship Application can be downloaded by clicking on the image to the left.

Sacred Heart is sponsoring a Blood Drive on April 26th in our Parish Activity Center

Click on either of the red cross/blood drive images to go to the Red Cross Site.

There you can sign up by using the Sponsor Code  sacredheartlp

It also has information about who can donate and answers to other questions.

Thank you for giving the gift of life!

The Catholic Bishops of Indiana have published a pastoral letter, “Poverty at the Crossroads: The Church’s Response to Poverty in Indiana”. By clicking on the image above, you will be taken to the English version. By going to you can also access a Spanish translation. At the end of the document is a link for a short survey. This is for the gathering of feedback on the document. The Bishops will consider this information when they meet in May.
I encourage you to take the time to read this letter from our Bishops and provide them with feedback. At Sacred Heart, we have committed ourselves to feeding the poor through our Food Pantry. We have established our Francis Committee to support the Food Pantry and help us explore and act on other matters of poverty/social justice. But, there is always more to be done.

Rebuilding Together Work Day May 9th
I have had the privilege of being on the board of the newly established La Porte Rebuilding together. Our goal is to help improve our local neighborhoods and the lives of those who live in them. Specifically, we seek to provide labor and materials to do repairs on homes that allow elderly and low income families to remain living in their home. The selection committee, of which I am a member, has chosen the work sites for this year. The La Porte Urban Economic Zone Association Board, which I serve on, has provided a substantial grant to rebuilding together as have local businesses and individuals.
Now we need workers! Skilled, Unskilled, Everyone. You can download a copy of the Volunteer application HERE and be a part of this great effort. I strongly encourage your support of Rebuilding Together so we can make a difference in our city and county.
Fr. Ian
