The goal of our Parish Golden Jubilee is, “Growing in Faith”. To continue to grow in faith as a parish family and as individual parishioners, we have associated with a website called Formed. This will help us and provide many opportunities to read, hear and watch online the Bible, the life of Saints, Sacraments, teachings of the church and fundamentals of our faith. To commemorate the Golden Jubilee of our Parish and the  Anniversary of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, we will launch this program in our Parish on May 21st, on the Feast of St. Eugene de Mazanod, the Founder of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. This is why our Parish has invested in FORMED so that each of us might grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and in our desire to share our Faith with others, especially those closest to us. Please take  advantage of this website to continue to grow in your faith and thus grow closer to God!

Thanksgiving Food Drive 2021

Sacred Heart keeps its long tradition of helping the needy by having its annual FOOD DRIVE.

Are you willing and ready to make a change? Then ACT ON IT!

Thanksgiving is a special day for all of us to thank God along with our family for all the graces and blessings. As we know, “When we share our joy with others it doubles” and so we invite you to experience the Power and Relevance of the Divine Mercy everyday by helping someone in need. We kindly ask each family to follow the schedule and bring the items that will make a Thanksgiving Dinner and make a difference in the life of a family in need. The first item for next weekend is a can of corn and green beans.

Every drop of water makes the ocean; so too, if everyone contributes we can make a change in the life of our brothers and sisters in need.

  • October 23rd & 24th – Corn & Green Beans cans
  • October 30th & 31st – Mashed Potatoes Boxes
  • November 6th & 7th – Stuffing & Gravy
  • November 13th & 14th – Turkeys

As of today we do not have enough to prepare all the food baskets we need.

Please give generously… and soon.

Diocesan Guidelines to Attend Mass:

  • The Dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation continues for everyone in the Diocese of Laredo. Therefore, those who, at this time, do not choose to attend public Sunday Mass do not commit sin. In particular, people with symptoms associated with COVID-19, people with underlying health conditions, the elderly, pregnant women, and those that have been in close proximity with people who have tested positive for COVID-19 should remain at home. For the benefit of all, we will continue to live stream all weekend Masses (regular schedule).
  • Current capacity restriction is 25% per Mass. Extra seating will be available in the parish hall.
  • Mask must be used by anyone over the age of 2 entering the church.
  • Social Distancing practices are to enforced the entire time the people are on church property (6 feet apart), including when standing in line to receive Holy Communion.
  • Holy Communion will be distributed at the end of the Mass only in the hands. After communion we asked you to exit the church and make a prayer of thanksgiving in your vehicle.
  • The collection will be received at the doors of the Church either before or after the celebration of the Mass.
  • Parishioners are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer.
  • For more information please visit the diocese website or Facebook page.

Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Church

God Be With You

The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? Because the loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.

– 1 Corinthians 10:16-17
