Volunteers 

Sacred Heart Parish offered our dedicated volunteers a special Mass and breakfast on November 15 to honor their generous sharing of their time and talent with our church.  It was a wonderful morning and everyone enjoyed having the chance to worship and break bread together!  Thank you, volunteers, for all of the beautiful gifts you bring to our parish!

FEDERAL DONOR RECORDKEEPING RULE ON CHARITABLE DEDUCTION

 The Pension Protection Act of 2006 included a section relative to charitable deductions.

The rules require that people claiming charitable deduction back up those deduction claims with cancelled checks; records from banks or credit card companies; or written notices from the charity or not-for-profit institution. The burden is on the donor to maintain or obtain the required records.

The parish will provide a record of contributions, upon request, which will satisfy the IRS requirements. Contributions of cash can only be used as a deduction if church envelopes are used enabling the parish to identify the donor.  Please call Deneen Thomas at  609-267-0209 ext. 303
