Sacred Heart of Jesus Church - Serving the Communities of South Bend and Lakeville, Indiana
The Altar & Rosary Sodality has their annual Holiday Decor Garage Sale in November and would be grateful for any donations! Whether you’re down-sizing, having your own garage sale or just doing regular spring cleaning, if you have “stuff” to donate bring it to the church and put it in the Hall or the church basement after the Mass you attend OR call Barb Lemanski (784-2738) and she’ll arrange for pick-up!
Both Churches Easter Decorations:  as always, Easter decorations in both churches are done so well, so beautifully; so professionally!  Many thanks to the two parish’s volunteers who help keep the church sanctuary and entries seasonally beautiful and inviting!  I know that oftentimes the helpers are few and it is just the principal chairperson and one or two others who do all the work, so a very special thanks to those people. 

We are having a reception this Sunday, April 28 after the 9:00 Mass in honor of those who have been accepted into full Communion with the Catholic Church at last Sunday’s Easter Mass. These participants, Craig Hartzell, Pam Malec, and Eve and Martin Miller, have worked hard over the past several months and the Mass is not the end, but the beginning, of their journey with the Catholic Church.
