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.

Disciples on the Journey

Would you like to make this Lent a more meaningful experience? Disciples on the Journey is a program that helps to facilitate your spiritual journey during Lent. Small faith sharing groups are formed and meet once a week during Lent. Sign up after Mass on January 31 and February 1 or by sending an email to mherbelin2@gmail.com.

Influenza and Holy Communion

The Influenza Surveillance Report from the California Department of Public Health was released last Friday. A sample of health care providers reported 4.6% of the patient visits were for “influenza-like illness”. This percentage is above the epidemic threshold of 3.7%. The CDPH believe this number will continue to rise.

Therefore, the Diocese has asked all parishes to:

  • discontinue the distribution of Holy Communion from the cup,
  • encourage the reception of Holy Communion in the hand,
  • refrain from offering the Sign of Peace with a hand-shake,
  • do not hold hands during the Lord’s Prayer.

Please remember that if a person has flu-like symptoms, he/she is exempt from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass and should stay home.

These are temporary, preventative measures implemented until the danger of the Flu season is past.

Calling all MOMS

The Ministry of Mothers Sharing (MOMS) invites you to join our upcoming session. Grow in your faith, friendship and spirituality in 2015 with mothers of all ages and life stages. Our next 8 week session will begin on Tuesday, February 3rd. Registration flyers can be found in the church vestibule.

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.

Prayer for the Week

During this special year dedicated to prayer for consecrated life, parishioners are encouraged to pray often the following prayer:

O God, throughout the ages you have called women and men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses of Faith and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering of ourselves to you. Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Sacramento Food Bank

On the last Sunday of every month, we collect non-perishable foods to help the less fortunate through the Sacramento Food Bank Services. Donations items are placed in the sanctuary, inside the altar rail and are taken to the Food Bank on Monday morning for immediate distribution. We encourage all parishioners to participate in this special outreach program to those in need in our community.
