Guest post by Stewardship Coordinator and Parish Festival Team Member, Sheryl Cahoy
There is something about the weekend after Labor Day that stirs up a hunger in people here at Sacred Heart Parish. We are so very blessed by such a great hunger for Jesus here at Sacred Heart. In fact that very desire drives everything that we do and our vision of “Walking With You to Meet Jesus”!!!
But this weekend there is a special hunger. It starts as a murmur somewhere around the first of July, builds to a steady conversation by Labor Day and comes to a fever pitch on Sunday, September 10th.
It’s the 45th Annual Sacred Heart Parish Festival and the 6th edition of the Holy Smoke Rib Fest!
I sat down with Fr. Andrews and Fr. Scott to hear what they’re looking forward to this weekend….
There’s all this talk about Ribs and so much more it’s making me hungry.
Festival does so much more for our community than just feed us with good food:
- It brings us together as One Parish, no matter where we come from, what kind of work we do, or who we are!
- It satisfies our desire to get to know one another better and be “neighbors”.
- It helps us slow down and savor the “Good Life” and the good food that God has given us here in Norfolk, Nebraska.
- And it brings out the talents of so many that come and help. From the local bands that share their music with us to some of the best darn BBQ ribs in the state and everyone in between that simply lends a hand to make it One Awesome Day!
Come One, Come all… Just come Hungry!
