Dear Parishioners, Former Parishioners, Alumni & Friends of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish,

On June 246.lcelebrated my first anniversary as the pastor of Saered Heart Parish During that
year wenve had our ups and downs but we all know that a whole lot of great things have taken
place with the help of so many good people. I ttlank our Sisters of IHM, our Faculy, ourHome &
School Associationo our Men's Club, our Ladies Auxiliary, our Future of the Faith Committee
and our Youth Cnoup for all of their help in so many ways which has helped us to accomplish so
much in one year.

We all know our Church looks great and so many things have been fixed and renovated in our
School, our Convent, our Rectory and our Chapel. All of these things were able to be done
because of lots of good people who truly love Sacred Heat of Jesus Parish and School. Our
Sisters of IHM have been paid for the first time in four years because of your monthly generosity
in the IHM Collection. Good things are happening, but it seems just when things seem to be
going in the right direction something comes along and takes the wind'out of your sails.

This summer has been a tough one. Our sunmer collections are way down and we ane struggling
to pay our bills. Lots of school families are way behind in paying their tuition and we have
teachers that need to be paid over the summer. Everyday sometling else has to be repaired. This
week, the dishwasher and the refrigerator in the rectory needed to be replaced. Both of them
were very old and ofcourse could not be repaired. Just about every weelg because ofthe age of
the buildings, we have a plumbing problem in one of our buildings..I have tried my best but I am
not a miracle worker and I need you to show your love of our parish and your parish by helping
us out in anywayyou oan.

Just recently, we found out that there is anottrer problem with the Church roof. Slate tiles and
flashing are falling offthe roof in the area between the Church Baptisty and the back door of the
oonvent. The water is not leaking into the Chrnch but as a result of the rotted wood under the
slato tiles, the missing slate tiles and the missing flashing the water from the Church roof is going
into the firs! second and third floors of the convent. The Sisters have leaks on each of the three
floors of the convent as a result of problems with the Chwsh roof. The Sisters have wet ceiling
tiles in the second and third floor hallways in the convent and new leaks in their newly renovated
kitchen on the first floor. This Tuesday, July 19s, we will begin fixing the Church roof..
The roofer said that the section of the roof that needs to be repaired is the original roof and
probably has not been touohed since the constuuction of our Church. The wood under the slate
tiles is completely rotted out and needs to be replaced in order to be able to nail new slate tiles to
the roof and reaffix the flashing on the roof. Bad news is that it will cost somewhere between
$13,000.00 and $30,000.00 to be repaired depending on what the roofers encounter as they begin
the repairs. It could also be a whole lot higher than $30,000.00.

Some of the money that I have put away for air-conditioning our Church will now have to be
used to pay our teachers' salaries during the summer and some of the money will be used as an
initial deposit for the Church roof repairs. Now, we have to raise the rest of the money for the
Churoh roof repairs through donations and fundraisers. We ask you to please support our Junk &
Dunk 2, our Trip to New York to see the Play the Addams Family and our Casino Trip. It is our
hope that Junk and Dunk 2 and these two trips will raise $1,000.00 each for our parish.
This year of 201 1 marks the 140fr Anniversary of our parish and in the early Fall we will begin
preparations for a big 140s Anniversary in the Spring. More details will be forthcoming once we
have our meotings in September

In ar-r effort to raise monies for our roof repairs in this 140th year of our existenoe as our parish, I
would like to have a very simple fundraiser on the weekend of August 13 & 14. The event will be
called a "COIN-LINE FOR A CAUSE". This is something that I saw in Ireland and it is agteilt
way of raising money without rnuch effort. It is my hope that in this the 140tr Anniversary of our
parishthat wi cao collect 140,000 ooins on the weekend of August 13ft & 14tr.

Our Parish of Sacred Heart of Jesus was built with the pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and
dollars of the Irish immigrants who built our Church and I believe that our roof can be repaired
through the pennies, nickols, dimes, quarters and dollars of our current and former parishioners.
On Sunday, August 14ft, tho Vigil of the Assumptionafterthe 11:30 a.m. Mass, we will line up
all the coins that we receive between now and Sunday, August 14s. It is my hope that we can
surround our Church with coins for our Roof Repair Project and maybe even colleot all
140,000.00 coins, which is our goal.

140,000   Pennies would raise $1,400.00 for our Roof Repair Project
140,000   Nickels would raise $7,000.00 for our Roof Repair Project
140,000   Dimes would raise 514,000.00 for our Roof Repair Project
140,000   Quarters would raise $35,000.00 for our Roof Repair Project
140,000   Half Dollars would raise $70,000.00 for our Roof Repair Project
140,000   One Dollar Bills would raise $140,000.00 for our Roof Repair Project

This idea came into my head after an unknown person left 4 buckeis of coins on the front steps of
our rectory two weel$ ago. We don't know who our donor was but we thank him/trer for their
donations. They will be the first coins that we will place on our pavement on the 14s of August.
We are asking all of our parishioners to spread the news to all of our parishioners, former
parishioners, alumni and those vacationing at the shore that Sacred Heart Parish needs their help
to repair our Church Roof. We know that in these tying financial times that finances are tight
for lots of people. In this trying time for our pmish, we are asking you to be like those who built
our parish and that you too donate your pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, hatf dollars and dollars
to help us repair our roof.

On the 14fr of Augus! we ask you to join us and line up your coins in our "Coin-Line for a
Cause". Our Cause is to Repair the Roof of the Church, a Church that We All Love So Well.           If
you will not be here on the weekend of the 13m and '14th of August and have coins that you
would like to donate for the Roof Repair ProjecL donations can be dropped offat the rectory
between now and the 14s of August. We will also be saving all the coins donated in ourPot of
Gold, for the next couple of weeks for our "Coin-Line for a Cause"

Doing this firndraiser on Mary's Weekend, we ask her intercession that this fundraising effort
will be a greatsuccess. May Mary, the Mother of the Sacred Hear and our Mother be with us on
her special Feast Day. May Pennies from Heaven fall on our Parish on the 14tr of August.
With God on our Side, all things are possible.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place ourfrust in you.

May God Bless you for all you do for our Parish.
Sincerely yours,
