NC BEGINS SEARCH FOR SCHOOL PRESIDENT
Sacred Heart Parish has initiated a search for a President who will serve as the acting leader of Norfolk Catholic School (NCS).
For the past five months dozens of supporters of NCS have engaged in a strategic planning process to provide a roadmap for the future of the school. One of the highest priorities identified was the need to hire a president who will act as visionary leader, coordinator of the administrative team, and chief fundraiser.
A search committee composed of key representatives from the parish and Archdiocese of Omaha has been selected to identify the ideal candidate. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.

Prayer of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, we consecreate our lives, our families, and our parish to you. We offer to you our hearts: All that we are, all that we have, and all that we love, without exception. May all members of this parish choose the path of Discipleship-in worship, thanksgiving, evangelization, and loving service to one another and to the poor.
May we stand strong against all evil by perseverance in faith and trusting obedience to the teachings of Jesus and His Bride the Church. May we shine as a beacon to all with the light of His wisdom and love.
Mary, Mother of God, keep our parish close to your Immaculate Heart, and wrap us in your protective mantle in union with Jesus your Son. We ask this in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Sacred Heart Parish will be praying for parishioners in need of special prayers.
The listing will be in the Sunday Bulletin and also read at weekend Masses.
To be included, the following regulations will be followed:
---The person being prayed for must be a current parishioner.
---The parishioner themself must call in to the Parish Office (contact Reggie at 402-371-2621) with the request. If the parishioner is physically unable to make the call themself, a spouse may call in the parishioner’s name and with the parishioner’s permission (a parent may call in the name of a minor child). Some parishioners are very private and do not want to have their name on any list or announced at Mass on Sunday. (We need to know your relationship with the person being prayed for.)
---The parishioner being prayed for will only be on the list for 2 weeks.
---The only way to get a parishioner’s name on the list will be to call the Parish Office.
---No new names will be allowed to be added at the last minute at Church. Deadline for the request will follow the Bulletin article deadline listed in the bulletin.
Prayer For A Transformational Campaign8b6
God our Father, we humbly ask in your mercy that you bless this Campaign. Everything we have is a gift from you and so it is right and just to give you thanks and praise.
As we eliminate our debt, please give us the grace to trust your Son, Jesus, and emerge from this Campaign ready to embrace the Stewardship Way of Life with transformed hearts.
The Holy Eucharist is the way you form us as disciples. As we renew St. Mary’s, your temple in which you feed us, give us Mary’s humble heart of service.
By the power of the Holy Spirit banish all fear and doubt that may prevent us from giving our lives totally to you. Amen
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, Pray for us.
