ICF Super Bowl of Peanut Butter and Jelly!
To increase the amount of food reserves this winter for Betty Chinn’s ministry to the homeless the Italian Catholic Federation Branches in Humboldt County will be coordinating a peanut butter and jelly donation drive at St Bernard, St Mary, St Joseph, and Assumption Parishes. Donation boxes will be in the vestibule of the church for your donations from now until February 14th (Super Bowl Sunday). Please leave your donations in the boxes.
At the end of the donation drive the ICF will award the parish with the most peanut butter and jelly donations as the Champions of the Super Bowl of Peanut Butter and Jelly!
Baby Bottle Boomerang Invitation
Baby bottles for donations to the Pregnancy Care Center and J Rolpe are in the churches. Please take one home and support your catholic pro-life values by collecting monetary donations for the pro-life centers. This is a great Lenten project for the family: placing money usually spent on luxuries like candy, beer etc in the bottle for the help of Moms and babies. A good outreach is to ask others to contribute their spare change to assist pregnant women and their babies. Bottles may be brought to the office. God bless you for your assistance.

The Best Devotional Apps You NEED on Your Phone
It’s no secret that spiritual reflections and prayer meditation guides have been around for eons and aren’t going anywhere. But, for those searching for a more structured prayer guide and the accountability that comes with it, devotional apps are the way to go.
We’ve done a test drive of some of the latest (and greatest!) devotional apps on the market today. Check out why these made the cut and consider downloading one or two to jumpstart your spiritual life this advent season.
The human heart seems ultimately to manifest itself in the desire to be loved and to love in return. Until then, as St. Augustine said, our hearts are restless until they rest in God who is Love. As Catholic Christians, we are privileged to share God’s love through Mass, the sacraments and how we live our lives. Do you know someone thirsting for God? Do you know someone not baptized or baptized in a different Christian tradition thirsting to know what it means to be Catholic? Do you know someone already Catholic but who has not yet received Confirmation or the Eucharist? They may be thirsting, too! The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a place to ask questions and seek understanding. Weekly “no strings” inquiry gatherings are on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the back classroom of Sacred Heart Church. We would love for you to invite /accompany anyone you know whose heart is restless for the God who loves them. For more information, please contact Ann Lynch (443-6741) or call the rectory office at 707-443-8429.

The Sacred Heart Rosary group invites you to join them on Tuesdays at 11:30 at Sacred Heart Church in the chapel. We look forward seeing you there.
