From Fr. Kitsmiller

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Happy Mother’s Day to all of our women of the parish who have accepted that wonderful vocation. We owe a lot to our mothers who carried us in their wombs, gave birth to us, nurtured and helped us grow into responsible and caring human beings.

From Fr. Kitsmiller

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Today, we kick off the 2019 Bishop’s Annual Appeal (BAA). This year’s theme is “God makes every grace abundant.” This theme reminds us that God gives us the grace to do well and then can multiply our generosity by which many know of God’s love and mercy.

From Fr.. Kitsmiller

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, This year’s Holy Week and this past Easter were particularly tragic in some parts of the world. Holy Week opened with the burning of the ancient Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris.

Many thanks

Many thanks to Gina Bishop and John Huffman for providing beautiful music at Mass each week. Sacred Heart is truly blessed to have you both! “Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.” ~ Psalm 95:1

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Happy Easter! Buona Pasqua! Our Lord has Risen from the tomb and has conquered sin and death. This is the faith of the Church from the very beginning when Mary Magdalene, the faithful women, Peter and John found the empty tomb.

Divine Mercy Sunday

The Sunday following Easter is popularly known as Mercy of God Sunday. Between 1930 and 1938, Christ appeared to Sister Faustina, a Sister of Mercy in Poland who initiated the Divine Mercy devotion.
