Yummy Donut!
Our SHOJ Class of 2025 and 2026 Lemon Out Heroes! Garrett was diagnosed with ALL leukemia when he was 2 years old. He endured 3 1/2 years of treatment. During that time his family could truly FEEL the prayers from the Sacred Heart community and so many others! They now have a special place on our hearts for St. Peregrine. It was a long and bumpy road, but Garrett is 7 years off treatment and remains cancer free! Jackson was diagnosed with LCH when he was 3 yrs old. He went through 2.5 yr of chemo and steroid treatments. Even though we were new to Sacred Heart School we definitely felt the support and love from everyone. We said prayers to St Philomena and St. Jude during this time. Jackson is 12 now and in full remission and doing amazing! Thanks to Saint James Academy and the support of Bishop Miege High School at this year’s Lemon Out Fundraiser!

"No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks." Saint Ambrose Thank you, Sacred Heart Families, for your generous donations during enrollment to treat the staff at Sacred Heart to treats in the Teacher's Lounge. Though we don't often find our teachers lounging, we find that with snacks like these, they often have a smile on their face. Thank you also to our CPS volunteers who go to the store, haul the boxes in, load the refrigerator and break down the boxes after delivery. Thank you ALL for loving us well!

Hero Walk  Thursday 9/7 @ 5:30 PM Saint James Academy
The Lord delights in every little step you take.- St. Francis de Sales On this day where we honor the contributions of America's workforce, we take a mini-pilgrimage to walk in the footsteps of the author of life who inspires our work: Jesus Christ. Our resource staff is full of amazing professionals like Kim Dreiling, Speech Pathologist. This summer Mrs. Dreiling's sister Krista took her and Mrs. Dreiling's son on a big bday trip. Which birthday? Not her 21st or 30th or 40th or ... I'll stop there because I value our relationship. Have I shared too much already? They flew to Athens, boarded the Norwegian Jewel and set sail to Kusadasi, Turkey. They visited the Virgin Mary's home where she lived after the death of her son and prior to her Assumption. They traveled to Bethlehem, Tel Aviv and other holy sites. Mrs. Dreiling's heart was consumed as she visited places that Jesus lived, suffered, died, and was resurrected. It brought her into Scripture in a whole new way. Thank you, Mrs. Dreiling, for sharing your journey with us. Want more? Just ask her. She is filled with excitement to share. We pray that our own contributions through our work in whatever field God has called us to points back to Him.

Lego Club Fall 2023
Calling all gamers! We always start our "Board Game" elective post this way. Gaming is not solely a pursuit involving electronics. We love seeing these 7th and 8th graders sitting down to enjoy some game time together. It feels like a good exercise in community to draw them together with a game, and let them fall into good conversation. Featured here: A game of "Clue" as well as one student teaching others how to play "Kings in the Corner." Three class rules: Play nice. Win nice. Lose nice. Good stuff.

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?"- Martin Luther King Jr. Thank you, Mrs. Rhodes for knowing JUST what your teachers needed after a late (but great) night at Back to School! Jesus, jeans and caffeine. First full week of school and these teachers are still smiling!

"A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows." St. Francis of Assisi At Back to School night, God was up to his usual business; creating beauty in the natural world. He painted a backdrop for our church while we gathered as a family of his families inside. As if that wasn't enough, he was simultaneously telegraphing his love for his Mother as the light from the rose window reflected upon her. Perhaps he was hinting that we can go to Jesus through a burning love for his Mother. Thankful our staff members who happened to capture these moments and share them with the team. These are the same eyes that look lovingly at your children each day and see the marvel of God's creation in them, too.

Father Zarse shared a simple message with our students today at All School Mass. He wants to build a bridge from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to the heart of our children. He wants to build a bridge from the school to our namesake; the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Come, Holy Spirit! We thank God for Father Zarse's vocation and we are humbled that our parish loves and supports our school so generously. Our hearts overflow with gratitude as we meet at the foot of the cross.
