The First Saturday Mass that is usually celebrated at Sacred Heart Church at 9 am is being cancelled for the month of December only.

Helping Improve Your Experience of Advent



We’ve all seen Christmas decorations appearing in stores since September and Christmas ads were on television in October. With so much commercial attention surrounding the Christmas season, it is easy to lose sight of the most important thing we need to be preparing for this time of year – preparing our hearts and our homes to celebrate Advent.

Unfortunately, things seem to move at lightning speed between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Unless you have a plan for how you and your family will celebrate Advent, you may get to Christmas Day and realize you missed it. So let us help. Once again, we have combed the web looking for the best resources to help you have the best experience of Advent. We have selected the top 10 Catholic Advent web sites.

Click on the ADVENT link in the menu to peruse the resources we’ve gathered and select what fits your needs the best.

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.

Pope Francis: “Life is too short to be selfish”. Founded in 1991 by Fr. Luigi Verde, the Fraternity of Romena serves as a home for wayfarers coming from all over.

Pope Francis: it is “urgent to educate…men capable of healthy relationships”. The Pope shared three paths to navigate today’s “communication highway”: that of formation, protection of society’s weakest and testimony.

In a very rare move, Pope dismisses conservative US bishop. Pope Francis dismissed Bishop Joseph E. Strickland of Tyler, Texas, one of his fiercest critics among US Roman Catholic conservatives.




The human heart ultimately seems 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 the God who is Love.  As Catholic Christians, we are privileged to share God’s love through the Mass, the Sacraments and how we live our lives. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a place to ask questions and seek understanding. 

Weekly “no strings” inquiry gatherings begin on Tuesday, September 12 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.
