Vatican News

Vatican News is the news portal of the Holy See. Surpassing the concept of being a simple digital platform, Vatican News seeks to respond and, in a certain sense, to anticipate the continual changes taking place in communication, with the objective of “communicating the Gospel of mercy to all people” in various cultures. It communicates and interacts through audio, video, text and images on a multi-lingual, multi-culture, multi-channel, multi-media and multi-device plain.

The Pope Video

Let us pray that ecclesial movements and groups may daily rediscover their evangelizing mission, and that they place their own charisms at the service of the world’s needs.

Pope Francis – May 2023

Ecclesial movements are a gift, they are a treasure in the Church! That’s what you are!
These movements renew the Church with their capacity for dialogue at the service of her evangelizing mission.
Each day, they rediscover in their charism new ways of showing the attractiveness and the newness of the Gospel.
How do they do this? Speaking different languages, they seem different, but it is their creativity that creates these differences. But always understanding themselves and making themselves understood.
And working at the service of the Bishops and parishes to avoid any temptation to close in on themselves, which can be the danger, right?
Always be on the move, responding to the impulse of the Holy Spirit to the challenges, to the changes in today’s world.
Remain in harmony with the Church, since harmony is a gift of the Holy Spirit.
Let us pray that ecclesial movements and groups may daily rediscover their mission, an evangelizing mission, and that they place their own charisms at the service of the world’s needs. Service…

Rosary Group on Tuesdays

The Sacred Heart Rosary group invites you to join them on Tuesdays at 11:30 at Sacred Heart Church in the chapel.  We look forward seeing you there.




The human heart seems ultimately to manifest itself in the desire to be loved and to love in return. Until then, as St. Augustine said, our hearts are restless until they rest in God who is Love. As Catholic Christians, we are privileged to share God’s love through Mass, the sacraments and how we live our lives. Do you know someone thirsting for God? Do you know someone not baptized or baptized in a different Christian tradition thirsting to know what it means to be Catholic? Do you know someone already Catholic but who has not yet received Confirmation or the Eucharist? They may be thirsting, too! The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a place to ask questions and seek understanding. Weekly “no strings” inquiry gatherings are on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the back classroom of Sacred Heart Church. We would love for you to invite /accompany anyone you know whose heart is restless for the God who loves them. For more information, please contact Ann Lynch (443-6741) or call the rectory office at 707-443-8429.


We Have A Prayer Team


If you have a special need of any sort, we have a prayer team who will pray on your behalf.  Let us pray with you, and for you.  Surround yourself with prayer.
