MISSION STATEMENT
We, the faith community of Sacred Heart Parish,
are a beacon of hope, reaching out and welcoming
people of all ages and cultures.
We worship and minister in the heart of Waterloo,
offering our gifts of acceptance, care, and formation in the Catholic Faith.

Dear Sacred Heart Parishioner,
We need to know who our parishioners are, what their concerns and needs are, and how we can better serve them. For this reason, the Pastoral Council is conducting a survey of all registered parishioners. We hope each family will take the time to ponder, pray, and honestly answer each question.
We recognize that families and individuals have unique situations that may cause them to attend other local parishes. We also recognize that some people are no longer involved in the life of the parish for various reasons. If there is a need for clarification of issues or healing for a previous negative experience, we truly want to know and be available to assist you.
Because we live in such a mobile and rapidly changing society, it is vital that our parish data is current. Please help us update the parish data base for future mailings, email and phone contact. Please take a moment to complete the enclosed survey and return it to the parish office as soon as possible.
Surveys returned by October 31 will be entered into a drawing for three $25 gift cards to Kwik Star. Surveys can be returned to the rectory via US Mail, by dropping them off at the parish office, or by placing them in the collection basket at any of the weekend masses. If you would prefer, the survey can be completed by Survey Monkey. Click on the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SHcensus
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this very important endeavor.
Father Kenneth Stecher
