Parish Prayer List

Sacred Heart of Jesus is keeping in contact with all parishioners during this time of Covid-19 quarantine.  Most of our parishioners are doing ok at this time and many have engaged in the effort to meet temporal needs expressed.  Some of our parishioners have expressed prayer needs. In our efforts to remain united and supportive to each other in our parish we will be keeping a list of prayer needs.  We are calling on all in our parish community to begin praying for these needs. Let’s support each other and be united in our prayer. If you have a specific request please either contact the person who left their contact information with you when the parish made its most recent round of calls or contact the parish office.   If your prayer has been answered on the list let us know. We want to give God the Glory!
