ADA 2017

Sacred Heart Parish is going to do something bold in 2017: Make our ADA goal!

Most parishes do not meet their Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) goal, but at Sacred Heart, our parishioners have been challenged to us be the first parish in the Vicariate to achieve this goal.  With sacrifice and determination, we will accomplish this.  In 2017 we will "fill the heart!"

Have you already contributed?  If so, thank you!
If not, there are three ways to give:

  1. Fill out the traditional ADA Card.  They are located in the pews. Cards can then be deposited in the specially designated ADA Box in the front of the church.
  2. Give to the John Deere Classic Birdies for Charity program using the brochures in the pews.  Your money plus a minimum of 5% will be give back to the parish as part of this program! For example, if you give $1,000, the parish will receive a check back for $1,100.  This match + 5% (minimum) gain is useful to help the parish make up any deficit this year in our ADA collection. *The past two years the John Deere Classic has been able to give a 10% match back to parishes!  Completed forms can be placed in the ADA Box in the front of the church. It is important that you write the Sacred Heart Parish - Rock Island Birdie Number 2108 when you completed the form!
  3. Just like #2 you give toe Birdies for Charity, but you contribute online here! Search for Sacred Heart by name or Birdie Number 2108.
