Automated Giving ::Three ways to go!

One of the challenges faced by Sacred Hearts is the constantly changing pattern of giving over the course of the year. Summers, with many visitors are strong. Winters can be difficult. Storms, vacations, and active lives take people away for weeks or months. First Fruits is our new program of automatic giving which insures that even if the weather is poor or people are away our church receives a constant and planned level of support. If you would like to become a first fruits parishioner please Click Here.
