The Sacred Heart Church Memorial Fund is a wonderful way to remember a loved one who has passed away.

It began in 1995 when parishioner Thomas DiCola wished to have his brother Harry, who had Down Syndrome, remembered in some special way. After bringing the subject up with his daughter the idea of The Sacred Heart Memorial Fund came to mind. Msgr. Francis Barszczewski, Pastor at the time, was very taken with the idea and the first inductees into the new Sacred Heart Memorial Fund were Harry DiCola and Msgr. Frank’s parents Frances & Anthony Barszczewski. 

As you can see by the list below the parish embraced this idea.

Here is how the fund works:

Within a one year period a total contribution of $500.00 is donated to Sacred Heart Parish. One method is by asking relatives and friends (example: in lieu of flowers) to please make contributions to the Sacred Heart Memorial Fund in memory of the departed.

Each donation received, whether $5.00 or $100.00, will be acknowledged with at thank you note from the Pastor and the Parish. When your $500.00 is met the relative or friend closest to the deceased will receive an enrollment card and a pin (during the All Souls Day Mass) to show you have a family member or friend who is being remembered through our Memorial Fund.

Also the deceased will have their name engraved on our Memorial Fund Plaques (which are displayed in the vestibule of the church.) There are six masses per year remembering the Sacred Heart Memorial Fund members.  At this time the names of inductees from the past two years are read. There is also a yearly Mass on All Souls Day. Following this Mass families are invited to the rectory for light refreshments.

For further information or questions regarding the
Sacred Heart Memorial Fund please contact the rectory
at 610-623-0409 Monday through Friday
between 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM.

We will be happy to assist you with any
questions you may have
