Read the daily quote from Pope Francis


Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Church


                Pastor’s Corner


Today we remember the “faithful departed”, who welcomed the Life that the Lord gave them, who will be raised up on the last day.

· The souls of the just are at peace in the presence of God.

· Death of a loved one, or one’s fear of death, can bring a darkness in life.  God has given us his Son, so that uniting ourselves to him in prayer and through the sacraments, we will be filled with all the graces we need to live life with the fullness of hope.

· In the first reading, we are reminded that the souls of the just are in the hand of God.  In Saint Paul’s letter to the Romans, he tells them that the same Holy Spirit given by the Father to Jesus, has been poured into their hearts as God’s love.  In Saint John’s Gospel, Jesus tells the crowd that all who believe in him will be raised up to eternal life.

                  Administrative Notes

· Please welcome Dr. Janice Jett today at all the Masses,  principal of St. Pope Paul II Catholic School, addressing our parishioners about the current status of the school.

·  Our Annual Stewardship/Financial report will be available in the Gathering Area the weekend of November 8 & 9.  Additional copies will be available in the Parish Office.

· I will be on vacation November 9th through the 16th.  Please keep me in your prayers during my journey.

· Every First Friday of the month we have Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament following the 8:00 AM Mass.  Please join us Friday, November 7th for Mass at 8:00 AM and this very special time with Jesus after the Mass.  Be Blessed!

· Due to the number of worthwhile charities we support, we encourage participation on 2nd collections as you are able, towards those that interest you.                                                                            Father Burch
