Ladies of our Partner Parishes are invited and encouraged to join and be actively involved our Rosary Altar Society. The organization seeks to provide regular social gatherings as well as group opportunities for praying the Rosary together. Members are invited to pray the Rosary, 1) at funeral visitations for partner parish members, and 2) on Wednesday evenings during the Months of May & October at Sacred Heart Church. Funds raised through the organization are used to pay for Altar Bread & Wine for our Partner Parish Masses and other special projects (like a new Mary Garden for Sacred Heart Parish). You can come to any of the monthly meetings, usually held on 2nd Thursdays at Sacred Parish in the school building. See the weekly Parish Bulletin for meeting notices and announcements of upcoming activities.
