We take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to all those who will be visiting us. We are pleased that you have come to worship with us. The doors and hearts of our parish family of FAITH are always open, and we invite you to contact us at any time.
Under the leadership of Father Anselm Russell, the “Sacred Heart Hospitality Ministry” has been formed comprising of volunteers of the Parish. The main goal of this ministry is to provide support to those Parishioners who are lonely and need someone to talk to, or just to visit with them. Visits can be scheduled weekly, biweekly or as often as the need arises. Anyone requiring this type of the support is invited to call the Parish Office and a visit will be scheduled with one of our volunteers.
TIPS TO HELP PREPARE FOR A HURRICANE
It only takes one storm to change your life and community. According to the National Hurricane Centre, the 2016 Hurricane season is expected to be more active than previous years. That said, being prepared and having a plan could make a big difference for your survival if a dangerous storm was to hit our islands.
Here are some tips that may make life easier for you….
Determine your risk—find out what wind and water hazards could happen where you live, and start preparing how to handle them.
Develop an evacuation plan.
Secure an insurance check-up—ensure that you have enough Homeowners insurance to cover repairs, etc.
Assemble disaster supplies—supplies not just to get you through the storm but for the potentially lengthy and unpleasant aftermath.
Strengthen your home—if you plan to ride out the storm in your home, make sure it is in good condition and all repairs completed as quickly as possible.
Identify your trusted sources of information to keep you updated regarding a storm—radio station, cable tv etc.
