Why We Give

                                   There’s no better investment in the world than the local parish.                                   It is where people meet Jesus and lives are changed.

 

Dear friends,

This certainly is a time of upheaval in our nation and our world. Everything from March Madness to Broadway plays to school and work schedules and yes, even to the normal liturgical practice of our Catholic faith has been interrupted by the coronavirus. We pray that you and your families remain safe while the corona virus runs its course. We pray particularly for those most directly affected by the virus.

We understand that Archbishop Blair has cancelled all Masses through April 3, 2020.

However, as you are aware, Sacred Heart’s expenses continue even during this pandemic. As always, we depend upon your supportive contributions to meet those expenses.  If you are not attending Sunday Mass, you might continue your contributions in any of several ways:

  • Consider becoming an Online Giving donor (directions below).
  • Mail your donation to Sacred Heart Church, 910 Main St. South, Southbury, CT 06488.
    • Write your envelope number in the memo section of the check as well as date it covers (e.g., 3/21/2020)
    • If you don’t have an envelope number just write the date the donation covers.
    • For your convenience, you might want to become a monthly rather than weekly donor.
  • Use your bank’s Bill Pay feature. Ask them to send a check to Sacred Heart Church, 910 Main St. South, at whatever interval you determine.

We appreciate your commitment and generous support for our parish community of faith and its many good works.  May God bless and watch over all of us in these troubling times.

God bless you.
