 To the date of the publishing of this bulletin, Sacred Heart donors have pledged a total of $57,999.65 toward the 2016 Catholic Ministries Appeal.  This represents about 120% of the parish goal as defined by the Archdiocese.   Remember that for every dollar given over goal, fifty cents of that dollar comes back to Sacred Heart as cash rebate.  Thank you for helping us exceed our CMA goal for another year.
