Sacred Heart Foundation Selects Officers
Posted: February 28, 2015
The Sacred Heart Foundation in Watertown is pleased to announce the
selection of officers for 2015 Board of Directors. Nancy McCabe will
be serving as President with Stephen Gebo returning as
Vice-President. Joseph Butler Jr. is also returning as Treasurer,
and Jayme St. Croix joins the executive committee as Secretary.
Congratulations to our new officers and thank you for serving on the
Sacred Heart Foundation Board of Directors.
The mission of the Sacred Heart Foundation is to spread the word
of God by raising funds which provide financial assistance for the
education of those studying to be priests and brothers of the
Missionaries of the Sacred Heart anywhere in the world. This mission
was given to Christ when he said, “Go therefore and make disciples
of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the
Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” While many of us are not personally
able to spread God's love throughout the world, a financial
contribution to educate such aspiring young men, becomes a valuable
contribution to this mission.
Last year alone the Sacred Heart Foundation awarded $77,000 to
support 76 young men studying in 12 different countries around the
world through the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. Since our
inception in 1968, the Sacred Heart Foundation has awarded over 1.5
million dollars to support the formation of priests through the
Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.
Locally, the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart serve in the diocese
as priests in the Catholic communities of Cape Vincent, Rosiere, and
Chaumont. In Watertown, priests serve in St. Anthony’s, St.
Patrick's, and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart parishes. Retired
Missionaries of the Sacred Heart also serve in various parishes in
the diocese when the regular parish priests are on vacation.
You can become a supporting member of the mission of the Sacred
Heart Foundation by becoming a member; attending the annual benefit
dinner in September; or entering the Sacred Heart Foundation/FX
Caprara Memorial Golf Tournament in June. Information is available
on our website www.sacredheartfoundation.com or by contacting the
Sacred Heart Foundation office at 315-782-3344. It is through the
support of people like you that we are able to continue supporting
the formation of priests so that they may fulfill the mission set
forth by Christ. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.”

Jefferson Community College (JCC) held a Pinning Ceremony for
weekend option graduates of the College’s nursing program on
December 19, 2014 in the College’s Sturtz Theater. Nine candidates
for the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in nursing were
eligible to take part in this special program. JCC’s “Weekend
Scholars” are students who, beginning in January of 2013, attended
classes at JCC every other weekend on Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. and from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The
weekend, part-time format was developed in response to need in the
community for more registered nurses and a more convenient way for
more working adults to enter the healthcare field.
The “Pinning Ceremony” is a time-honored tradition at all
institutions of higher education that offer degrees in nursing. The
ceremony is symbolic of the transition from a student to entry into
nursing as a profession. The pin is designed to be unique to each
school of nursing. After being “pinned”, each student recites
Florence Nightingale’s pledge.
During the Pinning Ceremony, JCC nursing students were honored for
their outstanding achievements with the presentation of various
