Sacred Liturgy Confrence May 28-31



As part of the 2023 Eucharistic Revival undertaken by the USCCB, Bishop Robert F. Vasa of the Diocese of Santa Rosa has invited the 11th annual Sacred Liturgy Conference to be held in Northern California.

The conference will begin on Pentecost Sunday and the theme will be “The Mother of God in the Eucharist”.  It will take place May 28-31, 2023 in Ferndale, CA with the Gregorian liturgies celebrated at the Church of the Assumption and the lectures at the Tish Non Village Center next to the Bear River Resort. We look forward to seeing you in 2023!

The mission of this conference from its inception has been to foster greater devotion, understanding, and love for the beauty and meaning of the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Through a deeper understanding of the Eucharist as the source and summit of our faith and life in Christ, we find our mission, vocation and the true meaning of life.

Praem, Dr. Lynne Bissonnette-Pitre, Fr. Theodore Lange, Fr. Joseph Levine, Fr. Joshua Clifton, and Fr. Stephen Kenyon.The registration fee is $325 (Layperson) or $275 (Priest/Seminarian/Religious/ Deacon)  and includes 15 conference sessions, reserved seating at the liturgies, an opening reception, three catered lunches, coffee breaks and a concluding banquet dinner. * An optional chant workshop is also available on Saturday, May 27.

St. Patrick’s Celebration Thank You

Thank you for attending and for your support of the parish at the St Patricks Celebration. The Knights of Columbus did an excellent job in cooking the delicious corned beef dinner, so tender and the vegetables tasty and al dente. They purchased and prepared the food and cleaned the kitchen.The Boy Scouts (Thank you Frank and boys) were so attentive and busy as they served and performed their duties. Debbie David and Crew did a fabulous job decorating. Fritz prepared the room and cleaned. Everyone reported that they really enjoyed the music. It was note worthy and especially gratifying to witness how God brings so many people together in fellowship who share their talents in service to Him and the church. May God bless and keep you.

The Pope Video

We pray for those who have suffered harm from members of the Church; may they find within the Church herself a concrete response to their pain and suffering.

Pope Francis – March 2023

In response to cases of abuse, especially to those committed by members of the Church, it’s not enough to ask for forgiveness.
Asking for forgiveness is necessary, but it is not enough. Asking for forgiveness is good for the victims, but they are the ones who have to be “at the center” of everything.
Their pain and their psychological wounds can begin to heal if they find answers —if there are concrete actions to repair the horrors they have suffered and to prevent them from happening again.
The Church cannot try to hide the tragedy of abuse of any kind. Nor when the abuse takes place in families, in clubs, or in other types of institutions.
The Church must serve as a model to help solve the issue and bring it to light in society and in families.
The Church must offer safe spaces for victims to be heard, supported psychologically, and protected.
Let us pray for those who have suffered because of the wrongs done to them from members of the Church; may they find within the Church herself a concrete response to their pain and suffering.

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.
