Just a reminder that JMJ  will have our closing party on Wednesday, May 30th at 3pm in the social hall.

Our JMJ disciples were excited to be able to present the Legion of Mary with a beautiful table runner depicting  the mysteries of the Rosary. Our JMJ Disciples worked hard to make it a beautiful keepsake. It truly was a group effort. Thank you to the Legion of Mary for surprising us with pizzas, we really enjoyed them.

As we close another successful year for JMJ, we invite young people between grade 3 and  8 to join us next year.

Sing for Joy – An Afternoon of Music!

Join us on Sunday, May 20 at 3:00 pm at Sacred Heart Church for an afternoon of musical entertainment brought to you by the Music Ministry of Sacred Heart and St. Gerard’s.  God has gifted our parish with a diverse range of musical talent.  As we take great pride in singing to the Lord all year long, on this Sunday afternoon we sing for your pleasure and enjoyment.  It is our hope that your day will be enriched by our diverse program showcasing the eclectic styles of music that brings us joy.

The afternoon features the precious voices of the Sacred Heart Children’s choir, the rousing voices of the St. Gerard Choir and the masterful harmonies of the Sacred Heart Adult Choir.  In between the choirs you will hear breath taking solos by Bea Murphy and Oscar Muniz as well as delightful piano solos by Sacred Heart’s Director of Music, Marina Moffett.

There is no charge for the event, however, a free will offering will be taken for the benefit of our local St. Vincent de Paul Society, a 501c non-profit organization.

We hope to see you there!!

SAVE THE DATE! – Diaconate Ordination for Lou Bartos – Saturday, June 9, 2018 @ 10am

All parishioners are invited to attend! A bus has been reserved. Sign up for a round-trip to Lou’s ordination, leaving Sacred Heart, promptly at 8:00am and leaving Mary, Queen of the   Universe at approximately 12:30 or 1:00 to return to Sacred Heart, sign up at the parish office. Suggested donation to cover the cost of the bus is $20.00 per person.

  • Following the 4pm Mass on June 9th there will be a pot luck dinner to celebrate Lou’s ordination. All parishioners are invited and are asked to visit or call the parish office to RSVP so we can get an approximate head count and to let us know if you can bring a dish and what it will be. We expect to have a large cake, so desserts will not be needed.
  • Can’t make it to the pot-luck? There will be other opportunities to celebrate and congratulate Lou. Following the 7am and 11:30am Masses on June 10th there will be coffee and pastries, following the 9:00am Mass will be breakfast.

Want to congratulate Lou with a gift? It is not necessary; your prayers and support are all he wants. But if you are inclined, there is a gift registry in the parish office that includes items he needs in order to perform his

Deacon duties and also items the parish needs, such as matching vestments for our Deacons and Priests.

Divine Mercy Sunday

On April 8, 2018, the Second Sunday of Easter (or Sunday of Divine Mercy) Please join us at 3:00 PM in the church for Exposition of the  Blessed Sacrament and praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Jesus said to St. Faustina, “I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of mercy upon the souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy. On that day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet … Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy.”
