New Roof 2020

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I am happy to inform you that the Roof project of the Sacred Heart Church has been completed. Really it looks very beautiful and many have told me that the Work is done well.

At this time I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Sacred Heart Committee and its members who helped to raise the fund towards this project and work tirelessly. Along with the committee, there has been great support from the organizations and groups of the parish in all the possible ways. Last but not least also there are many parishioners who generously contributed their time, talent, and treasure wholeheartedly to accomplish this great work. We are able to finish this work because of you and your support. We have posted the Church’s Roof pictures so that you can see the completed work. Once again thank you so much for everything. May God bless you and your families!

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!

Spiritual Consolation

To help you through the process of grieving for a loved one you’ve lost through death, Deacon Héctor Martinez will be available the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month for spiritual consolation (in Spanish). For English, Father Lawrence is always available.

Please call the Parish Office at 773-2451 to make an appointment.

FORGIVEN on formed.org

The Transforming Power of Confession

We want to invite you to watch FORGIVEN offered on formed.org. With beautiful film-making and teaching on the Sacrament of Reconciliation, FORGIVEN will move your heart and give you plenty to discuss as a family or group of friends. Forgiven explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God’s love. By looking at God’s revelation of his  mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Our parish has invested in FORMED so we can continue  growing in faith and in our relationship with Jesus Christ and in our desire to share our faith with others, especially those closest to us.

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
