SWEATERS FOR SENIORS
Sweaters for Seniors began in 2011 as a service project of William Shewalter a 2nd grader at Sacred Heart School. With the help of classmates, teachers and volunteers the project has helped donate over 1500 sweaters for older adults! Please help by donating a new or gently worn sweater. Larger sizes and cardigan styles preferable. Please drop your sweater donations at Berks Catholic High School or Sacred Heart School. Deadline for donations is February 28th. For more information contact Rene or William Shewalter (610) 781-8153 or rdshewalter@gmail.com.

The Knights of Columbus are looking for the names of all active, inactive, and Reservists (Military) personnel in our Parish so we can add them to the our existing prayer list. We want to pray for them and their families in thanksgiving for their service. Please contact Scott Kos with their names, branch, and rank @ skos1@verizon.net.

FLOWERS IN THE CHURCH
The weekend of February 23rd is available for anyone who would like to place flowers at the tabernacle or in front of the altar. To make arrangements, please call the rectory at (610) 372-4010

GREETERS AND USHERS NEEDED!
Any men or women interested in volunteering to be greeters and/or ushers at Sunday Mass please call or email Bob Duchynski at (610) 775-7597 or rduchynski@comcast.net. No previous experience required – just a smile!
We are especially in need of greeters for the 9:30 and 11 AM Masses.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
Every Tuesday the real presence of Jesus is in the Church/Chapel for the entire day beginning after 8 AM Mass till 10 PM. Please take time from your busy schedule to spend an hour or a half hour with Jesus. Many blessings have been received and prayers answered after time was spent in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.
If you can commit one hour or ½ hour a week or once a month, your presence would be greatly appreciated. Please prayerfully consider sharing your time with our Lord. If you would like more information, please call Bonnie Batdorf at (610) 372-4010.
