We're Glad You're Here!

Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish! Please join us for weekday Mass at 7:15am (8:30am on Wednesdays) or for weekend Masses on Saturday at 4:00pm, and Sunday at 8:30am, 10:30am, 5:30pm, and 7:00pm Spanish Mass. 

 

Our first Mass in the newly restored Church is Saturday, February 8, at 4:00pm. We will welcome Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki and many priests from the Diocese during this Mass to consecrate the Altar and rededicate the church. During this approximately two‐hour liturgy, there will be many unique experiences such as the application of oils and blessing of the Altar, a procession of the relics that will reside in the church, the anointing of the four marks of the church, and much more. Members of our Restoration Committee will serve in the ministry roles for this Mass. Please note there will be heavy incensing during the Mass. Immediately following the Consecration Mass, we will host a reception in the Sacred Heart Parish Center. Heavy hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be served. We hope to see a large crowd in the church and at the reception as we gather to bless our new space and to celebrate the sacrifices we’ve made to renew and restore our church.

 

We sincerely thank everyone who is participating in our Renew & Rejoice Campaign, which continues to be a success in making such beautiful updates to our worship space. We are humbled by the outpouring of commitment and the energy of the parishioners working together as a community of faith to raise over $3M for our campaign! We have had an amazing response from Sacred Heart Parishioners, friends of the parish, and businesses in our community. More than 155 disciples of Christ have volunteered their time and talents to make our campaign a success, while nearly 450 people have donated or pledged.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks to everyone who prayed for our campaign, everyone who volunteered, and everyone who made a donation or who may choose to contribute in the future. We trust that God will provide for each of us to fulfill our pledges in the coming years. Please know that there is still room for those who haven’t had a chance to respond. We will continue to accept donations and pledges for the restoration.
