A Special ‘Thank You’ to all the parishioners who help to prepare the church for Holy Mass with flowers, cleaning, organizing and liturgical assistance. The pews are shiny, the candles are attended, liturgical items laid out, tables are organized.

Visit Our Facebook Page For Your Daily Jolt



We encourage you to check in on our every day to see the latest news and to check back each day for a little piece of inspiration as well as a small spiritual challenge. Many parishioners have been attracted to the idea of carving out a moment of spiritual contemplation, and  coupling it with a meaningful — and very doable — action. Each day the Daily Jolt will offer a brief daily insight/inspiration and will also contain a “microChallenge” asking readers to take that moment of mindfulness and turn it into some small, immediate form of action in their lives. Our spiritual journeys are all unique and incredibly personal, but that doesn’t mean we don’t need a little Jolt from time to time to keep the journey moving forward. Don’t worry, this isn’t a test! There are no wrong answers here, our spiritual journeys are all unique and incredibly personal, but that doesn’t mean we don’t need a little Jolt from time to time to keep the journey moving forward. We hope that Busted Halo’s® Daily Jolt can be that sort of reminder for you on your own journey. So visit us everyday to get your Daily Jolt. Check it out on our Facebook page:

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.

Why Pope Francis’ big Vatican meeting next month is so important. Synods aren’t new for the church. But this one is structured to have lots of firsts — and — if successful, could cement Pope Francis’; legacy of creating a church where everyone – bishops, priests and laypeople—helps set the agenda for the future.

Pope Francis reveals date of publication for second part of Laudato Si’: October 4th.

Pope Francis to religious leaders: “There can be no mixing of religious beliefs and violence”. The ecumenical meeting included leaders of different religions, including Islam, Buddhist, shamanic and Orthodox. The Pope challenged them to promote harmony in today’s world.

Let us pray for those people on the margins of society in subhuman living conditions, that they may not be neglected by institutions and never be cast out.

Pope Francis – September 2023

A homeless person who dies on the street will never appear among the top stories of search engines or newscasts.
How could we have reached this level of indifference?
How is it that we allow the “throwaway culture” – in which millions of men and women are worth nothing compared to economic goods – how is it that we allow this culture to dominate our lives, our cities, our way of life?
Our necks are going to get stiff from looking the other way so we don’t have to see this situation.
Please, let’s stop making invisible those who are on the margins of society, whether it’s due to poverty, addictions, mental illness or disability.
Let’s focus on accepting them, on welcoming all the people who need it.
The “culture of welcoming,” of hospitality, of providing shelter, of giving a home, of offering love, of giving human warmth.
Let us pray for those people on the margins of society in subhuman living conditions, that they may not be neglected by institutions and never be cast out.




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.



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.
