The Sacred Heart Foundation in Watertown is pleased to announce the selection of officers for 2016 Board of Directors. Jayme St. Croix will be serving as President with Thomas J. Bruno as Vice-President. Joseph Butler Jr. will be returning as Treasurer, and Dan Villa joins the executive committee as Secretary. Congratulations to our new officers and thank you for serving on the Sacred Heart Foundation Board of Directors.

The mission of the Sacred Heart Foundation is to spread the word of God by raising funds which provide financial assistance for the education of those studying to be priests and brothers of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart anywhere in the world. This mission was given to Christ when he said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” While many of us are not personally able to spread God’s love throughout the world, a financial contribution to educate such aspiring young men, becomes a valuable contribution to this mission.

Since our inception in 1968, the Sacred Heart Foundation has awarded over 1.6 million dollars to support the formation of priests through the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.

Locally, the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart serve in the diocese as priests in the Catholic communities of Cape Vincent, Rosiere, and Chaumont. In Watertown, priests serve in St. Anthony’s, St. Patrick’s, and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart parishes. Retired Missionaries of the Sacred Heart also serve in various parishes in the diocese when the regular parish priests are on vacation.

You can become a supporting member of the mission of the Sacred Heart Foundation by becoming a member; attending the annual benefit dinner in September; or entering the Sacred Heart Foundation/Frank Caprara Memorial Golf Tournament in June. Information is available on our website www.sacredheartfoundation.com or by contacting the Sacred Heart Foundation office at 315-782-3344. It is through the support of people like you that we are able to continue supporting the formation of priests so that they may fulfill the mission set forth by Christ. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.”
