The mission of Sacred Heart Church is to call people to develop a personal relationship with God, to build a community of faith and worship, to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ by serving the needs of all people through the guidance of the Holiy Spirit.

Support Our School

This weekend is the first weekend of the month.

Please consider making a donation to the Sacred Heart School Foundation in the pink envelope along with your regular, weekly envelope.

Pink envelopes have been used for many, many years (even before the Foundation was established) to provide support for the School. The endowed funds of the Foundation allow us to provide this support on a continuing basis.

During the weekend of October 4th and 5th, the school parking lot will be used for the annual Fall Festival. The Mass schedule will not change and will continue to take place in the Sacred Heart School Gym. Please plan accordingly to arrive early and park in the church parking lot or Mercy Medical Plaza parking lot. And please join us for lots of fun Saturday Oct 4th for the Fall Festival!

Bequests to the Church

For parishioners who are able to, remembering the parish in your will or trust is a way to help keep our parish vital and strong for future generations. Bequests can be used as the donor designates. For example, one could donate for stained glass window maintenance, for church maintenance, for school scholarships, or for anything that supports parish ministries.

Sacred Heart Parish Bulletin

If you missed something in the weekly bulletin and forgot to bring one home, it is posted here. We also post the ads from the back page of the bulletin and encourage you to support our advertisers.

Baptism Classes

Baptism classes are available. In baptism we come to Christ. And there with Him we become spiritually alive as God's People called to share in His mission to proclaim God's glorious presence and works among us. The key to understanding Baptism, the first of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist), and indeed all of the sacraments, is found in the simple word: "Christ in us and we in Him. Through baptism (and the subsequent gift of faith) we are called, from the darkness of not knowing God to the marvelous light of dwelling with and in Him. At the font of baptism, we are reborn and become new creations, clothed with a Christian dignity and called to witness, in word and example, to the Gospel of Life.
