Although we have never seen him, we believe that

Message from your 6 month old
spiritually adopted baby
Thank you for praying for me. “I’m
sitting up straight now!” I’m 6 months old
now. I just opened my eyes. Before today
they were sealed shut for protection. I
wonder what you look like. I can hear sounds, too! It’s
great to have someone praying for me.
Month 6: "I'm sitting up straight now."
Your spiritually adopted baby is developing quite
beautifully now. Her weight is approaching 2 pounds.
She sits up straight now to accommodate her internal
organs which have moved into their final place in her
little body. Babies born prematurely at this time have a
very good chance of surviving. The medical advances
in caring for extremely small newborn infants are
extraordinary indeed. Don’t forget to pray for your
baby. Abortion is legal through all nine months and her
mom might still feel pressure to abort. If you would
like more information about how to spiritually adopt a
precious pre-born baby growing in the womb, please
contact Denise Blair-Nellies from the Sacred Heart
Respect Life Committee at 410-795-6852.
Charismatic Prayer Group
The Life in the Spirit Charismatic prayer group meets
every Wednesday evening in Library Media Center in
the school at 7:30PM, except for the second
Wednesday of each month when a Mass is celebrated.
The group meets to grow in holiness through prayer,
praise, teachings, sharing faith, seeking and using the
gifts of the Holy Spirit. All parishioners are invited to
attend the meetings.
For more information call Alice Zeiger at 410-5267422 or Ruby Wilson at 410-833-0812.

Christian Formation and Evangelization
DO YOU KNOW where the word Easter comes
from? The word Easter probably has roots in the
Norse term Eostur, the season of the rising sun, or the
time of the new birth of spring. Both these meanings
lend themselves well to Christian symbolism for the
new life of the risen Christ, the eternal light. He is
risen, Alleluia!
Thank you to all who helped to prepare our
Worship Spaces for Easter!
Parking
Please help us by not parking along the curb on the
school side of the building. This is a fire hazard and
would prohibit an ambulance from access to the site.
Thanks so much!
Welcome Home
All of us are called by Jesus to reach out and to bring
His message to all people. Each of us has the
responsibility to reach out to those in our families or
among our friends who have been away from the
Church to welcome them home.
Do you know someone who has been away from the
Church for a while or who feels unwelcome due to a
past hurt? Sacred Heart’s Welcome Home program is
for people who have been away from the Church for
any period of time.
If you would like more information about this program,
please

Sister
Jude

Family Fellowship/Catholic Identity Committee
Family Fellowship and our Catholic Identity
Committee asked our school students to tell us about
their favorite saint or Bible Story.
Here is one response:
A.J. Hunter says “St. Aidan is my favorite saint. I was
named after him. I like him because he was trying to
convert pagans and it was really hard because he didn’t
even speak their language. He was so patient and never
gave up. I’m glad I am named after such a great man.
I hope to follow his example.”
Sophie Foster’s favorite Bible story is “Solomon’s
Listening Heart.” It is the story of two women living in
the same house and both had very young babies. One
woman roiled on top of her son in the night and killed
him. So she tried to pass off the other woman’s baby
as her own. They ended up taking the issue to
Solomon and he said he would cut the living baby in
half, giving one side to each woman. The rightful
mother said not to do so and so he knew who the true
mother was.
I love this story because I really admire Solomon’s
wisdom in the tough decision and I hope to be wiser
someday.”

between home and school. The Sacred Heart preschool
program provides an opportunity for a child to develop

developmentally appropriate instruction in separate

afternoon includes time for lunch, nap, play, and

Sacred Heart School Needs Parishioner's Support!
Attention Parishioners, Sacred Heart School has a
fundraising opportunity that you can help with without
providing a donation or buying any goods. Don’t need
another candy bar? Don’t really have extra cash to give
a straight donation, but you would like to help. No
need to do either, you can help provide tuition
assistance for our students by doing your normal
grocery, Wal-Mart, and gas purchases. The program
works like this, you purchase retail gift cards through
our program (called SCRIP), after Mass at face value,
and spend the cards as you would normally to dine out
or simply buy your essentials. It does not cost you
anything above the face value of the card, but the
school receives a percentage back from each card
sold. Here is an example: Mrs. Smith needs some
gardening supplies, so she buys a $100 The Home
Depot® gift card for $100 through the school’s scrip
fundraiser. Cha-ching! She just earned $4 for the
school because The Home Depot gift cards are
available from SCRIP at 4% less than face value.
When Mrs. Smith checks out at The Home Depot, she
pays with her gift card instead of using a credit or debit
card! The list of retailers is endless and amounts vary
from as little as $5 to as great as $1000. You can buy
as little or as much as you need, as often as you want,
year
round.
Please
contact
Gina
Darby
[email protected], or 443-740-3278 to begin
participating in the SCRIP program today! Thank you
in advance for your support of our wonderful school!
