Sacred Heart Church was built in 1920-1921 and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. This beautiful church has provided the spiritual needs of Sacred Heart Parish for many years. As the church has been there for our needs, it is time we take care of its. We are in the process of renovating the church in preparation of its 100th year anniversary.
All parishioners interested in being part of the steering committee or one of the various subcommittees, including individuals that have previously stated willingness, of the Church restoration should email or call the parish office indicating the role you are interested in serving. The steering committee responsibility will be forming a plan and guiding the scope of repair and restoration. This term will run from the beginning to the end of the project. Sub committees have yet to be determined, but will work on smaller aspects of the restoration. This term ends when that specific task is completed.
Information sharing will be done largely in committee meetings, but also via email and text messages. When you email or call the parish office please leave your phone number(s), email address, and mailing address.
Committee members do not need to be present at every meeting, but must remain active in the process so informed decisions may be made. These early meetings are most important as they will form the basis and direction for the project, with complete understanding of the objectives and goals of the project.
All parish members are welcome to attend committee meetings. General rules of meeting etiquette as well as Roberts Rule of Order will be followed.
