Photo Directory

Dear Parishioners,

I am excited to share with you that we are creating new parish directories for St. Gregory the Great Parish and for the Church of the Sacred Heart parish.  To celebrate our faith family and strengthen the bond within our congregation, we welcome YOU to be a part of it!

A new directory is important to participate in because:

  1. It preserves this historical time for memory in the life the parish
  2. It becomes a lasting record of our current membership
  3. It helps us connect faces with names

We are partnering with Universal Church Directories, which is providing the directory at no cost to the parish.

Sign up today to make our directory complete and to help us reach our goal of getting 100% of our parishioners photographed!  There are 3 ways for you to get your appointment time scheduled.

Photography and portrait viewing will take place at the selected church with NO sitting fee.  You will have a variety of poses taken and one will be selected for the directory.  In addition to your complimentary 8×10 portrait, you will have the opportunity to purchase other photos on the day of your session, if you would like to do so.

Be sure to take advantage to be professionally photographed.  We are looking forward to seeing you in our new directory!

May God bless you,

Fr. Shane Stoppel-Wasinger, pastor
