 Support Group for Families ~ Dealing with Addiction
 In response to the drug epidemic in the city of Haverhill, Sacred Hearts Parish will be offering a support group to assist individuals dealing with addiction issues in their family and among their friends. Topics will be decided by the needs of the group and may include: grieving the loss from addiction, coping with the family disease of addiction, understanding treatment or how can I help. The group will meet Thursdays, January 29th and February 5, 2015 from 7:00—8:30 p.m. in the Sacred Hearts Rectory. Mary Fallavollita will lead the support group. She is a licensed mental health clinician who is trained in addiction counseling. For more information or to register confidentially, please contact Mary at 978-518-0674.

 5th Annual 5K Fun Run and Rosary Walk   

 

THANK YOU to everyone that came out and made our 5th Annual 5K a success.  A fun morning was had by all.  It was a beautiful morning for a run or a walk followed by a delicious breakfast. Many thanks to Eric and Kathy Darby and their team of run volunteers and to Mary Dodier and all her kitchen volunteers.  Together they all made it an enjoyable day.  All funds raised will be divided equally between The Emmaus House, Pregnancy Care Center and the Open Hand Pantry.  Thank you for helping us to help those most in need in our own community.
