A Year of Growth

This year will be a pivotal year in our parish. We will be engaging in a capital campaign. It is a unique undertaking. We are joining with Christ the King Parish and Seton School to raise funds for building projects that will affect all three institutions. We have contracted with the Steier Group which is headquartered in Omaha Nebraska to solicit pledges for the improvements we hope to make. How the Catholics of Moline will respond to this undertaking will determine how healthy our local Catholic Community will be in the future.

Faith Formation is the Greatest Gift We Can Give

Evangelization is something that is always on our mind as a parish. The main reason we exist is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We want to see people commit their life to Christ and be baptized. One of the main ways we form young people in the faith is through our Catholic Schools.

The Lessons of St. Vincent DePaul

St. Vincent DePaul is a world-wide movement of lay people who seek to help the poor and to grow in holiness. Our St. Vincent DePaul members will be available to help transients and to visit people within our parish boundaries. We often have people call our parish with material needs. We want to show them compassion and caring.

Growing as a Community

Recently we had a special event at our parish. It happens almost every year. We call it “mulch day.” The Garden Committee and others met at 8 a.m. in the morning and they spread mulch around our flower beds so that they will be weed free for most of the summer. We have several tons delivered and it is a massive job to disperse it.

A Month of Milestones

Part of the appeal of Catholicism is that we have many special celebrations that mark milestones in our lives. During the month May we have First Communions and graduations here at Sacred Heart and Seton School.

Capital Improvements and Growth

Dear Parishioners, During the upcoming weeks we will participate in an ambitious study to decide if we should undertake a capital campaign for the parishes of the Moline area and Seton School. We have many needs. The Sacred Heart church building needs major maintenance projects including making the church building more accessible for those who are physically challenged. We would also like to provide other amenities that would enhance our worship space.

Sacred Heart's Footprint May Be Expanding

The lot of the former First American State Bank building behind Culeman's Hall may soon become part of Sacred Heart's campus, which would provide more space for parking or building, as well as a safe drop-off point.

Regathering The Scattered This Lent

Dear Parishioners, In a couple of weeks our Lenten journey will begin. This year we will, once again, have a Lenten theme. The theme will be, “Wounded and Loved, Regathering the Scattered.” This is the title of a pastoral letter that was written by Bishop Bambera of the Diocese of Scranton.

A Year of New Beginnings

Dear Parishioners, Welcome to 2018! This could be a significant time in the history of Sacred Heart. During the upcoming year we are going to continue to implement the strategic plan that we finished in 2016. In that plan, there was a call for improvements to our facilities.

We Do Not Walk Alone, Jesus is With Us

Dear Parishioners, We are coming to the end of another year. It has been a tumultuous year in our world. There seems to be so much uncertainty. There does not seem to be much stability on the earth. Wars are taking place all over the globe. Acts of terrorism seem to be the new norm. News commentators even refer to “this week’s” act of terror.
