Our Lady of Fatima Statue here through May

During the month of May, Sacred Heart will be graced with a statue of Our Lady of Fatima. This statue comes from Fatima, Portugal. It is hand carved from one piece of cedar wood from Brazil. Before leaving Portugal in 1977, it was brought to the shrine of Fatima by the Bishop of Fatima and blessed at the original apparition site. He prayed that she would be received with great love here in the U.S. and that the message she gave us at Fatima would be honored. She comes with a message of love and hope, especially in these times when it is so easy to feel hopeless. Our Lord shares his Mother with us and knows that the love she felt when she held Him in her arms as an infant will be the same motherly love she will hold you with in all your concerns and troubles.

Changes at Mass…

As we continue to navigate the Covid-19 situation we are reminded that in everything, charity. The bishop allowed Holy Water in the fonts for the Easter Octave and now it remains only in the large font at the top of the ramp. Please feel free to bring some home. As is evident, the ropes are absent from the pews but the bishop continues to ask parishioners to mask as able and to remain socially distanced from others.

Anyone who is concerned about others being too close is encouraged to

  1. attend a vulnerable Mass (5pm Saturday or 9:30am Sunday)
  2. speak directly to your neighbor about sitting too close or 3) speak with either Fr. Sirico or Fr. Ron directly about your concerns.

The bishop has shared with his priests that he wants all people to feel safe and welcome to come back to Mass. Please help us in this effort!
