Thanks For Sacred Heart Donations / Gifts

Last week we thanked those people who have given of their time and energies to benefit the church community. This week we wish to thank all of the individuals who over the years have donated materials and funds for projects…like the donation of security equipment, sacred music, books, missals, catholic education pamphlets, health supplies, machines, tools and flowers to name a few. Much of the beauty we see in the church consists of parishioner donations like the Virgin Of Guadalupe image or materials for handmade items…like the tabernacle altar. Thank you!

There are many more and God knows who you are. Thank you and our deepest gratitude we extend for your help when needed most.

Mass Online

Easter, April 12, 2020

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have created a YouTube Channel for our local Catholic community. We recorded Fathers Bernard D'Sa and Rowell Gumalay saying Mass today so those who are sheltering in place and unable to attend services would have access to Mass with their local priests. The video was shot in high definition. You can view it here or on any smart device (TV, phone, tablet or computer) that has the YouTube app. Be sure to turn on the HD setting to get the best picture and sound. You should also have the ability to make the video full screen. (Note: higher resolutions may not be available for the first several hours after uploading)

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notification of new posts. Don't forget to turn on the sound and adjust the video quality to your needs. You can click here or on the graphic below to go to our channel.

Religious Education News

Dearest Families,

It feels strange to wish you all a Happy Easter, when instead we feel such longing to see you and share our common love of Christ together. We cannot tell you how much we miss being with your families, hearing our children laugh in the halls, to listen to the questions our children ask as they learn more and more of God’s love for them. It has been a hard couple of months, and I’m sure it has been hard in your homes as well. With that in mind, it is our hope to connect with you and your families as best as we can.

Know that we continue to pray for you and your families constantly, and that we miss and love each of you and your children. While we cannot come together as one, we are still all one family, children of our Heavenly Father.

May God pour His Easter Blessings on you and your families,

Father Bernard D’Sa
Father Rowell Gumalay
Deacon Dance and Kim Farrell
Saint Bernard/Sacred Heart Religious Education

Noticias de Educación Religiosa

Queridas Familias,

Sentimos extraño desearles a todos una feliz Pascua, cuando en su lugar sentimos tanto anhelo de verlos y compartir juntos nuestro amor común de Cristo. No pudo decirles cuánto extrañamos estar con sus familias, escuchar a sus hijos reír en los pasillos, escuchar las preguntas que hacen sus hijos a medida que aprenden más y más del amor que Dios tiene por ellos. Han pasado unos meses difíciles, y estoy seguro de que también ha sido difícil en sus hogares. Con eso en mente, esperamos conectarnos con usted y sus familias lo mejor que podamos.

Continuamos orando por usted y sus familias, y los extrañamos y amamos a cada uno de ustedes y a sus hijos. Si bien no podemos unirnos como uno, todavía somos una familia, hijos de nuestro Padre Celestial.

Que Dios derrame sus bendiciones de Pascua sobre usted y sus familias,

Padre Bernard D’Sa, Padre Rowell Gumalay Diácono Danza y Kim Farrell
