RELIGIOUS ED REGISTRATION
Diocesan Policy states that two years of preparation are required before the celebration of the sacraments of First Penance and First Eucharist. Thus all students entering first grade in September 2018 should be registered in Sacred Heart’s Religious Education Program. Registration forms can be picked up at the Religious Ed Office, sent by mail, or emailed to paddams@sacredheartreading.org. Please return the form, fee, and a copy of the child’s Baptismal certificate to the office. For more information or questions, contact Valerie Christo, DRE (610) 374-5430.

RCIA STARTING SEPTEMBER 4TH
If you know of someone that is interested in coming into the Catholic Church from another faith tradition, or of none, have them contact us. We’d love to talk to them and answer any questions they might have.
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process of formation, education, and initiation for those who desire to come into full communion with our faith community. It is for those who:
have never been baptized, or
have been baptized in a non-Catholic denomination and would like to come into full communion with the Church, or
were baptized Catholic but have never received the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.
Classes for both Sacred Heart and Holy Rosary parishes are held in Sacred Heart’s Parish Center. Our first class meets on Wednesday, September 4th, from 7 to 9 PM in the Bornemann room. Classes will continue to meet every Wednesday until Pentecost. If you know someone who is interested, please ask them to call Sacred Heart Rectory at (610) 372-4010  or email: SacredHeartRCIA@gmail.com.

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.
