This monthly report will discuss the ways we are adding value back to our parish by being mindful of how we spend and use facilities.
The entire Sacred Heart of Jesus staff are very mindful of the sacrifices that our parishioners make regarding their time, talent, and treasure, as they give back to God and His church. It is our mission to be good stewards of your gifts and utilize them to improve on the holy and exceptional facilities that we are blessed to live, work and pray in.

With some time of spiritual growth, I became more aware of the anxiety I was causing in my life.
I spent my childhood years waiting for a statue to float, or some magical vision like those the saints experienced, or to witness with my own eyes a miraculous healing. Maybe a dove would exude light in plain sight and this would be my encounter with the Holy Spirit that changes everything. Childhood came and went without the spectacular miracle. Then my teen years began.
To the wonderful community of the Sacred Heart of Jesus:
It is with great sadness that I leave Sacred Heart Parish, which has been my second home since 1997, and where I have been privileged and blessed to have been assigned to this ministry for the 5 years since my Diaconate Ordination...
