MISSION STATEMENT
Guided by the Spirit of God, the Roman Catholic
parish family of Sacred Heart of Jesus celebrates a
living faith in Jesus Christ. As a people of God we
are committed to worship in the Eucharist, to prayer and to an awareness of the needs of local and
global communities as the Gospel message instructs
us. We direct our efforts to promote excellence in
the Catholic tradition of education at all levels. We
are diligent and responsible in maintaining sound
financial and physical resources to meet current
and future obligations. We strive to see the face of
Jesus Christ in every person and to utilize the diversity of gifts present in our parish through collaborative ministries and apostolates.

Bowl weekend, members of the Confirmation Class

those in our area that are hungry and hurting. Please
join them as they demonstrate God’s love by loving
their neighbors through the Souper Bowl of Caring.
All funds collected will be donated to the Daily Bread
Food Pantry.

EASY REFERENCE DURING THE WEEK.

BAPTISM OF THE LORD
National Day of Prayer and Fasting
On Wednesday, January 22, 2014, a quarter of a
million people or more will gather in Washington, D.C.
to commemorate and protest the 41st Anniversary of
the decision of the United States Supreme Court that
legalized abortion into the fabric of our society as a
Right. . History has taught us that any nation that kill
its own citizens, born or unborn, for self-gratification,
age, or act of mercy, is definitely on the road to self
destruction. Every day in the United States the
number of abortions committed surpasses the number
of innocent people that were killed in the terrorist
attacks on September 11, 2001. Americans were
enraged when this atrocity happened because the
dead all had faces that we could recognize and love.
But when the atrocity of abortion takes place in the
mother’s womb, little attention or feeling is expressed
by our society because of the “invisible” faces that are
not seen and are treated as un-human. This type of
ruthless and merciless mentality needs conversion,
and reeducation on the dignity and respect of all
human life from the moment of conception to natural
death. The bishops of the United States have
requested that Wednesday, January 22nd be a day
of prayer and fasting in reparation for all the atrocity is
committed against human life every day in the United
States and around the world, and to join in solidarity
with the thousands who will be marching for LIFE in
Washington, D.C. We at Sacred Heart will do our part
on that Wednesday. We will begin with Mass at 7:00
AM in the Chapel of the Holy Spouses, Mary and
Joseph, followed by Exposition and Adoration of the
Most Blessed Sacrament until 12 Noon, at which time
Benediction will take place. We urge everyone to set
apart a time for prayerful Adoration before the REAL
PRESENCE of Jesus, or to reflect and pray in your
home, office, school, lunch break, driving to or from
work asking for forgiveness of past offenses against
our families, friends, neighbors, classmates coworkers, or HUMAN LIFE itself, and ask the Holy
Spirit to help you make a good confession that will
lead you and our nation to a conversion to a Culture of
Respect for All Human Life.
During adoration the
rosary will be prayed each hour on the half-hour
beginning at 7:30 AM, and the Litany for Life will also
be prayed after each rosary. Join us at this most
important hour in the history of our great land of the
United States of America.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR VOCATIONS
TO THE PRIESTHOOD AND THE RELIGIOUS LIFE.
Brown Bag Dinner

our Parish prepare and serve a nutritious meal for
