SH Financial Statement for 2013-2014
The financial statement for Sacred Heart Church parish is listed below. We wish to thank all parishioners for their support of the parish. It is our prayer that God will continue to Bless Sacred Heart Parish and its parishioners.
In a joint effort between the men of Our Lady Queen of All Saints and Sacred Heart Church Parishes, the Fall Sessions of That Man Is You! was started in Ville Platte in early September of 2013 and was a huge success. The group had an average of well over 50 men attend each of the Fall and Spring sessions. The upcoming Fall Sessions are open to all Men in the area, including those who were not able to participate during the Sessions last year. WHEREVER YOU ARE IN YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE, JESUS CHRIST WANTS TO ENCOUNTER YOU RIGHT THERE….AND TAKE YOU FURTHER.
That Man is You! is a 26 week interactive men’s program combining the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of a man fully alive. By honestly addressing the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, the nationwide program called That Man is You! seeks to form men who will be capable of transforming homes and society.
