Regular schedule of Masses will continue at Sacred Heart

Many people feel profoundly concerned, sad, and anxious following the motu proprio issued this morning in Rome regarding the Traditional Latin Mass. While it is our hope that the document will change nothing here at Sacred Heart, we are awaiting the Bishop’sdirections.  That said, the Bishop’s Office has informed us that we may proceed as normal with our regular schedule of Masses. Please pray for the Church and the Bishop at this time.

Monthly Novena to Celebrate Saint Joseph – Wednesday, July 7th

You won’t want to miss our next Parish St. Joseph Novena Celebration this coming Wednesday, July 7th at 6:30 p.m. Fr. Dominic Couturier will be preaching on St.Joseph.

Reception in the courtyard following!


Year of St. Joseph – July 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
