Vol. 4, 2016-2017
In years past, Sacred Heart Council 7445, Richmond TX collected parish donations on the 1st Sunday of Oct, Nov and Dec to support our military. The collections coincided with the monthly KC barbecue sales after each Mass (5 total). Of course, 2020 was different and since we could not have barbecue sales, how could we still support Trees for Troops (Christmas trees for troop families), Wreaths Across Americas (wreaths on veterans’ graves) and Frontline Faith (mp3 players for deployed troops)?
With the support of our pastor, Fr. Joseph Ho, we appealed to the parish for donations through bulletin inserts, email blasts to our brother Knights and after Mass announcements. Checks had to be mailed or brought to the parish office. What an awesome parish response - $4,280 collected during November and December!
Amazing, awesome, caring, kind, loving, supportive – all these words and more describe our parish family. We thank them for their continuing support for all our projects.
