SACRED HEART PARISH MISSION STATEMENT

Sacred Heart Parish is a family of believers rooted in the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. We welcome all who wish to embrace Jesus Christ. We open our lives to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit that we may see all things in the light of Faith. We invite all on the journey to the Kingdom of God. Sacred Heart nourishes the parish family through the ministries of Evangelization, Education, Sacramental Worship and Christian Service. We offer our time, talents and treasure as stewards of Godís Church. We call on each otherís support as we build Godís Kingdom. With Our Lordís help, we will live the Gospel values of Faith, Hope, Justice and Love.


Services

Confessions:
Saturdays 4:00 to 4:45 pm

Eucharistic Adoration:
The first Friday of each month from 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm with Exposition at 12:00 pm and Benediction at 7:00 pm

Marriages:
Arrangements must be made at the rectory with a parish priest or deacon at least 4 months before the wedding. Normally weddings are for parishioners, but special situations will be considered. We recommend a wedding Mass for practicing Catholics. We recommend a Wedding Ceremony for non-practicing Catholics or mixed-religion couples. Both are valid Marriages.

Quinceanera:
Arrangements must be made at the rectory with a priest or deacon at least two months before.

Funerals:
Arrangements can usually be made with the rectory office by the funeral director. We have the Book of Funeral Readings at the rectory for families who wish to look them over. The priest or deacon will usually attend the wake.

Sick Calls:
If someone needs to be anointed, please call the rectory when they are seriously ill, don't wait too long. If someone requests Holy Communion, it will usually be brought by a Minister of Care.

New Parishioners:
Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish! Please register in the rectory office and be counted!

Change of Address:
If you leave the parish or move to a new address, please notify the rectory as soon as possible.
