Sacraments welcome/description message.
The sacrament of Reconciliation is about the mercy of Jesus Christ. Honestly confessing our sins reconciles us to God and restores us to His grace and intimate friendship. Confession breaks the power of shame and hurt of sin, and restores and revitalizes our relationships within the community of faith in the life of our Church.
Jesus was baptized and taught his Apostles to do likewise. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. We become members of the Body of Christ as we are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.
Arrangements must be made through the Parish Office. Parents are required to reserve and attend a baptism preparation class.

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. When we faithfully receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, we grow deeper in communion with God and fellowship with one another.
Sacred Heart celebrates the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist at each Mass. Click here for our complete Worship Schedule.
For more information on First Communion, please see our Faith Formation page.
The sacrament of confirmation strengthens the baptized and obliges them more firmly to be witnesses of Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith. It imprints a character, enriches by the gift of the Holy Spirit the baptized continuing on the path of Christian initiation, and binds them more perfectly to the Church.
Our Confirmation program is for students that are already enrolled in our Faith Formation program. For more information on our Faith Formation program and registration, please see our Faith Formation page.
The Bible describes God’s plan for marriage as a grace for a happy life and sign of Christ’s faithful and fruitful love for his Bride, the Church. We at Sacred Heart are excited for you to grow in this love and understanding.
Arrangements must be made through the Parish Office at least 6 months prior to the date requested. Please do not reserve a hall or make other preparations before confirming the date with the Pastor.

Since the time of the Apostles, Christ has personally called forth some men and women to dedicate their lives ministering to the People of God in the service of the Church as a priest or religious sister or brother.

Anointing of the Sick
Jesus showed compassion toward the sick and suffering. The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick extends God’s grace of spiritual strength, peace, and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with facing a serious health challenge or advanced age.
If you or a loved one is in need of an anointing, please contact the parish office.
