Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Church



Pastor’s Corner

Let us seek the Lord so we may receive the many good gifts he wishes to lavish upon us!


· The first reading today offers a beautiful admonition: “Seek the Lord while he may be found, call on him while he is still near.”  Some reasons why it is important to do this is because God is good and loving, gracious and merciful, and offers us peace and salvation.  Let us seek the Lord so that we may receive God’s good gifts.

· The first reading exhorts us to seek the Lord while he may be found.  The reading from Phillippians reminds us to conduct ourselves in a way that is worthy of the Gospel of Christ.  In the Gospel, Jesus tells a parable about a landowner hiring laborers to work in his vineyard.  Its lesson is that the first shall be last and the last shall be first.                                           Father Burch

Administrative Notes

· A big thanks goes out to the Parish Advisory Council and the Welcoming Committee for the reception on September 7th, for our Military families and newly registered families.  Thank you to all our parishioners who came out and made this event a huge success.

· TODAY is catechetical Sunday.  Please continue to pray for our students and catechists.
