Students in St. Peter the Apostle Middle School, Joplin, recently spent a day in service the first weekend of March in the Prayer Garden at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Webb City. The sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders planted tulip bulbs, raked leaves, and cleared away debris. Sacred Heart Parish Pastor Fr. Rahab Isidor talked with the students about Lent and heard confessions. Students ended the work day with a rosary prayed in the spruced-up Prayer Garden.

Webb City turkey dinner: 65 years of giving thanks

The parishioners of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Webb City continued the 65-year tradition of sponsoring a Turkey Dinner for southwest Missouri over the weekend of Nov. 1-2. The dinner is a major fundraiser for the church and an even larger social gathering for the local community.

Under the direction of Will and Cheryl Roderique, the 65th annual event was a huge success with over 2,000 dinners served. Sacred Heart provided a cafeteria-style sit-down dinner as well as take-out meals for local businesses and elderly residents. In addition, a country store and silent auction allowed patrons the opportunity to bring home nice gifts for the holidays.

Members of the parish cooked, served, and cleaned for the event.
