Phase 5 short version

Andrew said to Jesus,
“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish;
but what good are these for so many?”

Each of us can say: “Surrounded, led and guided by the friends of God…
I do not have to carry alone what, in truth, I could never carry alone.
All the saints of God are there to protect me, to sustain me

“Pope Francis Apostolic Letter:
“Gaudete et exsultate,” On the call to holiness in today’s world”

The Prophet’s Profit

It’s no coincidence that the first reading shows the prophet Elisha feeding a crowd of people like Jesus in the gospel. If you want to compare miracles, Elisha did his first, but Jesus did it better. Elisha had a hundred people to feed with twenty barley loaves and a handful of fresh grain. Jesus had five thousand people and only five loaves and a couple fish. So was Jesus trying to show up Elisha?

Neither Jesus nor Elisha ever did a miracle for their own benefit. The very next story in 2 Kings about Elisha is the one where he cured Naaman, the king’s servant, of leprosy. (2 Kgs 5:1:19) When Naaman realized he was cured, he came back to Elisha and offered him a gift in thanksgiving. Elisha refused the gift, because it would imply that Elisha did the miracle, while the prophet knew that God had cured him. Jesus also refused to benefit from feeding the crowds. They came to take him away and make him king, but he went up to his place of prayer on the mountain.

Jesus’ miracle of feeding the five thousand was not done just for the crowd. He was using it to teach the disciples something important. He knew there would be times when they felt they were not holy enough or good enough preachers, to spread the gospel over the world. So he showed them what God can do with our meager abilities.

There are millions of people hungry for the good news that Jesus brings to the world. Remember the miracle of the loaves when you only have a few dollars to give to the missions, when you’re not sure you know enough to teach someone about Jesus, when you don’t know how to invite someone to come back to church. And remember that you do those things, not to make you look holy, but to let God show his loving power.

ST. JOSEPH THRIFT STORE BLESSING & OPEN HOUSE
AFTER MASSES ON JUNE 26TH & 27TH

Come and see what is happening with our newest parish project! Fr. Joseph will be blessing our new store located in the Sacred Heart School building after mass on Saturday, June 26th. There will be an open house after masses so that everyone can come and see the progress and take a tour before the store’s grand opening on July 1st!

Watch Your Giving Grow as You Help Us Grow Our Ministry!

If you give through ParishSOFT Giving – our secure giving program, accessible from the church website – you can watch your giving grow this season… and throughout the year! When you create a login, your gift and pledge history will be stored so that you can access it at any time. This will allow you to accurately assess how much you’re giving to which fund so that you can make informed decisions and plan your future gifts. It also helps us in the church office, there’s much less processing for online gifts than for envelope gifts! Here’s how:

WE HAVE ONLINE GIVING!

We’re pleased to announce that Sacred Heart and Immaculate Conception now provides online giving through software called ParishSOFT Giving. This is a convenient and safe way to make a onetime or recurring donation. Getting started is easy—just visit our website, www.sacredheart-duquoin.org and click our Online Giving link on the top bar.

All parishioners will first click on the Fund button and make a selection from the drop down menu. For weekly envelopes,  select PARISH.  A SUB FUND button will open.  When you click on the Sub Fund button, another drop down menu will appear and you will find ENVELOPE and a few more choices. Parishioners of Sacred heart will select ENVELOPE for weekly gifts. Parishioners of Immaculate Conception will find an ’Immaculate Conception’ link further down in the drop-down window, you will select that so your gift will be for Immaculate Conception gifts. Immaculate Conception parishioners will only be able to do online giving for the weekly envelope.

When you participate, your gift will transfer directly into the appropriate parish bank account. You won’t have to remember to write a check or stop by the ATM on Sundays! If you manage your bills online, why not give to your church online? It’s safe and secure, and you decide exactly when your gift is made and where it goes. 

If you have any questions please feel free to call the office and we will help you!

PSR Classes

Coordinator of Religious Education Needed

Our PSR program was very successful this year and we are looking forward to another faith filled year with our students beginning this fall. In order to make this happen, we are searching for someone to take the CRE position for the upcoming school year. We are also searching for new teachers. If you would be interested, please contact the parish office at 542-3423.

Thank you to all the individuals, families, and groups that packed and delivered the bags. A huge thank you to Barb and Roger Craft for shopping for us.

We are blessed to have generous parishioners who donate monthly to the Social Justice collection. Sacred Heart was able to help 20 needy children weekly during this school year. Thanks again to all and please continue to support this worthwhile program.

RCIA FOR 2021

Are you, or do you know of someone who is interested in learning more about the Catholic faith?

Sacred Heart/Immaculate Conception and St. Bruno’s will begin classes for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults soon. These classes meet weekly from August until Easter. You do not have to join the Church. You can just find out more about Catholic faith. If you are interested, please call Kelly at Sacred Heart/Immaculate Conception (542-3423) or Christine Kelley at 559-6581.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

Is one of your favorite times to be in Church when it’s quiet and you are alone with your thoughts to the Lord? Then why not come and enjoy that feeling of warmth and love a couple of times a month and join Eucharistic Adoration held at Sacred Heart Church? You can pray, just talk to God or just simply listen to what He has to tell you.

Many have asked why we have a schedule of Adorers. It is because once the Body of Christ is placed into the Monstrance and it is displayed on the altar, it cannot be left alone. Anyone can come at anytime, stay as long as they wish. We are, however, looking for someone to fill a couple of hours during our Adoration time. If you are interested in participating in this devotion please call Lisa Mohr @ 542-4635. God Bless You.

Weekly News:

MASS INTENTIONS

When a priest celebrates Mass each day, he offers each celebration of the Eucharist for a particular person, or intention. By doing so he applies special graces from God upon that person or intention.

Would you like to offer a mass for someone special? If so, please contact Kelly at the office (Thursday 496-5867 or any other day 542-3423). Mass intentions are $10 per person.

BLESSING OF HOMES

During the year of St. Joseph (December 8, 2020 – December 8, 2021), Fr. Joseph will be going to the homes of our parishioners who would like their homes blessed.

There will be a sign-up sheet for times when he will be available to visit your home and give the blessing. The blessings will begin March 19th on the Feast of St. Joseph and run through November. 

  • They will take place for Sacred Heart Parishioners on Tuesdays between 9 am – 7 pm or Wednesdays between 9 am – 2 pm. Or you can contact Renee Cobin to set up a date and time for Fr. Joseph to come and do the blessing. 
  • For Immaculate Conception Parishioners this will take place on Thursdays from 9 am – 7 pm and you can contact Mary Heck to set up a date and time. 

As many of us get busy with our daily tasks, some may forget to sign up. If we do not hear from you, we will be making follow up calls to get you on the schedule if you would like to be added.

MISSION

God has created me to do some definite service.
God has committed some work to me
which has not been committed to another.
I have a mission.

—John Henry Newman

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Enough to Share.

So much in the gospel today. Large crowd following Jesus. Nearness of Passover, the remembering of rescue from slavery. The need to eat, thus, the need to provide a meal. A giving of bread and fish by a little boy. Bounty. Sharing. Wasting nothing. Right here in the heart of summer, it is time to read the letter of Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti, on fraternity and social friendship. Download a free study guide from the USCCB: https://www.usccb.org/resources/fratellituttistudy-guide.

  • Even if it seems I may not have enough, what food can I share?
  • Even if it seems I may not have enough, what comfort can I provide for someone?
  • Even if it seems I may not have enough, what do I have that I will not waste, that I will gather up, save, and recycle?

ST. CHARLES CHURCH PICNIC

St. Charles Church Picnic, Saturday, July 24, Du- Bois IL, Mass at 4:00 pm, Fried Chicken Dinner served 3 – 6:30 pm in the air-conditioned KC Hall, Carry Outs avail- able, Quilt/Cash Bingo at 4:00 pm, Grand Raffle to be drawn, Sandwiches & Cold Beverages available.

Cursillo in Christianity

Cursillo is the joyful proclamation of being Christian. It is a three day short course for laity and clergy within the Catholic Church. This weekend will enable you to join your life more fully to God and to constantly move toward sanctity in communion with your brothers and sisters.

The Cursillo Movement of the Belleville Diocese is once again convening Cursillo weekends for men and women:

Women’s Weekend: September 9-12, 2021 Men’s Weekend: September 30 – October 3, 2021

Love of God and love of neighbor are fundamental to living a Christian life. The foundation of these fundamentals derives from three essential encounters: the encounter with oneself, the encounter with Christ, and the encounter with others. Experience these three encounters on a Cursillo weekend! Please contact your parish representative for more information.

Respect Life Corner – ” in the Second Reading from the Letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians, 4:1-6, St. Paul calls us to live in unity with the body of Christ; moral lives as one body in Christ. He lists the virtues to extoll in carrying out our mission to make Christian Catholic living a reality: humility, gentleness, patience and forbearance (moderation.) The letter also reminds us of the union we share in our Catholic faith: one body, one Spirit, one Lord, one faith, one Baptism, one God who is over all, through all and in all. 

Learn, Act, Connect and Pray – This kind of community defines who we are as children of God. By living in Christ’s peace, we are better able to demonstrate what it means to be a person for others. By lifting up our lives to Christ in humility, we are better able to discern how to help those in our midst. As Bishop-elect Iffert wrote to the faithful of southern Illinois, “I am inspired by Pope Francis’ vision of a Church so deeply rooted in a relationship with Christ that we accompany the outcast, tend the wounded, mourn with the brokenhearted and rejoice and give thanks in every circumstance, and so carry out Jesus’ mission of evangelization.” In so doing, we promote a respect and love for the dignity of each person we encounter.
