Sacred Heart of Jesus St. Vincent Neighborhood Mission

The Sacred Heart of Jesus St. Vincent Neighborhood Mission ministry is an important means by which parishioners can be the “hands and feet of Jesus,” providing financial and material assistance, as well as encouragement and advice to parishioners and local neighbors who are in a situation of need. While not affiliated with the St. Vincent de Paul Society, the group models its process on the national organization, personally meeting and praying with the individuals it serves. There are several ways that parishioners can assist the group in its mission:

  • Contribute to the financial resources that are often needed (write “SVNM” on the envelope or check)
  • Prayers for the ministry and those it serves are always needed and welcome
  • We have occasional need of “ad hoc” resources—people who can step up to pro- vide assistance for a specific, limited need (e.g., cooking a meal, providing a ride, donating a needed piece of furniture, providing basic technical or legal advice or assistance, etc.)
  • Become a SVNM ambassador—as the ministry involves a pair of team members visiting the prospective “neighbor” to extend the personal message of caring to those we serve. It is helpful to have a large pool of caring individuals who will act as “ambassadors” of Christ and of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish.

Both those who may need assistance and those who may be able to provide it are invited to contact the ministry through the parish office or through the SVNM Help Line (616-236-3154).

Year of St. Joseph – 2021 Prayer and Plenary Indulgence

Pope Francis has decreed a Year of St. Joseph from December 2020 to December 2021 during which Catholics have the opportunity to gain special indulgences. There are many new ways to receive an indulgence including through prayer, retreats, entrusting one’s daily work to the protection of St. Joseph the Worker, acts of piety and service to the poor. For each upcoming month through December, the Office of Pastoral Services will share a highlighted prayer and plenary indulgence opportunity along with suggested areas of special focus for that month. The customary conditions for indulgences apply (sacramental confession, receiving the Eucharist and prayers according to the Holy Father’s intentions). Visit Year of St. Joseph for resources and to learn more.


Did you know that each First Wednesday is dedicated to the Most Chaste Heart of St Joseph, just like First Fridays are dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and First Saturday’s dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary?

Join us at Sacred Heart of Jesus parish for a monthly  parish-wide novena celebrating the Year of Saint Joseph every first Wednesday beginning on April 7th until December 1st from 6:30pm – 8:00pm

  • Praying the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary And Litany To St. Joseph
  • Listening to spiritual talks on the Life and Calling of St. Joseph
  • Adoring Christ in the Eucharist
