Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Church


                      Pastor’s Corner


· Peter’s profession of faith becomes the rock on which the Church is built.

· Peter made the dramatic pronouncement in today’s Gospel about who Jesus was.  Jesus called Simon Peter or Rock-upon whom the foundation of his Church would rest.  In the Gospel today, Jesus tells Peter that he is chosen as the rock upon which the Church will be built.

· We must strive to be like Peter-not only recognizing who Jesus is, but professing our faith openly.

· In today’s reading, the master of the palace is told he will be replaced.  In his Letter to the Romans, St. Paul exhorts the Romans to give glory to God forever. 

·  In keeping with the readings, this Sunday is Lay Ministry Sunday.  I thank all of those who donate time and talent to our church.  We still have many opportunities for you to give and serve.  Please see our Ministries list or call the church office to offer your services.                                                         Father Burch


                                     Administrative Notes

· The  10:45am Mass on the last Sunday of the month is the Children’s Mass.  It will be starting again in September.  All families with children are encouraged to attend.  I will invite the children to come down and chat with me about the Gospel.  It is an enjoyable way to teach the children the Word of the Lord!

· Good luck and good wishes to our students returning to school this fall.  Special blessings to those going away to college for the first time.

· The second collection on September 7th will be for the Catholic University.
