doughnuts. Come join the group each Sunday morning.
It’s a great way to get to know your fellow parishioners and make new and lasting friendships.

Hope to see you there!


The Bunco Party held on January 26, 2019, was a huge success and a good time was had by all! We raised $1,616.00 for Cudas Unhooked, a program for homeless and at risk students at New Smyrna Beach High School. Thanks to all who worked, donated and attended in support of the Cudas.


Kindergarten students led by their teacher Miss Meghan Ryan celebrated 100 days of school looking truly advanced in age on Tuesday, January 22nd. The children said that ‘It’s so cool to look old!” Some of them dyed their hair gray, wore curlers and reading glasses while some came with walkers and canes. It was a fun day to celebrate 100 days of school and honor the elderly. Go Eagles!    

Many thanks to all!

Our Liturgy committee wishes to say thank you to all those who joined us on
our journey through Advent walking with Mary. We pray that our program has made a difference on how you will welcome Jesus our savior and we pray that it is only the beginning of our spiritual growth as a faith community. Remember to turn in your surveys if you did not already do so. A big thank you to our pastor, Fr. Tom for his vision, his challenge and his support.  The Liturgy committee

Every family is called to be a place of prayer, service, and love – a little Church of the home.  Families naturally do this day-by-day in their lives.  However, it is such a beautiful and sacred sight to see families come to Church together on Sundays just in the case of Sacred Heart Catholic School families and students especially when they lead the 9:00 AM Mass during the first Sunday of every month. The 7th grade students are assigned as lectors, readers, altar servers, gift bearers,and cantors.The very young were called to the altar to receive a blessing and celebrate the Children’s Liturgy of the Word in the Chapel led by Mrs. Genie Franklin and Mrs. Jan Martin.  Our pastor Fr. Tom Burke, C.Ss.R. welcomed the children and reiterated the special message of Jesus in ‘letting the children come to him.”


Blessing of the Animals

All kinds of animals from the typical—dogs, cats and fish to hamsters and even a pig were brought to Sacred Heart Wednesday  October 3rd to celebrate with Lou Bartos and Sacred Heart School our beloved St. Francis of Assisi, Blessing of  Animals.  All animals are very much a part of  someone’s family, and they want to be a part of the church, just like we all are. The Love we give to a pet, and receive from a pet, can draw us more deeply into the larger circle of life, into the wonder of our common relationship to our Creator. We look forward to seeing all of you next year!
