"And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself." John 12:32


Pastoral Plan 2013-2014






Inquiry sessions for adults who are interested in exploring Catholic beliefs and practices and want to consider participating in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) will start on Sunday, Sept 7th, at 10:45 AM in the Family Life Center. 

The RCIA is a process of prayer, reflection and study spread over several months during which the inquirer participates in Catholic life and worship. The focus of the RCIA process is Christian conversion - a change of heart in which the individual turns toward God and away from whatever is in the way of living a full Christian life. 

Please contact Deacon Jeff Burgess at 278-7153 or you may email to

Our parish continues to pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life using the “Elijah Cup” as a focus for our attention.  One family or group is presented the Cup at Mass, takes it home, places it in a special place and prays daily for vocations.  Please consider participating in the Elijah Cup prayers.  Blessings are there - for vocations and for you.  Call Romy Go at 699-4860 to reserve your week.

Sacred Heart Catholic School



A Letter From our principal



Hello and thank you very much for reading about Sacred Heart Catholic School. 

The academic and extra-curricular activities offered at Sacred Heart have established over fifty years of rich traditions. Our School offers a great opportunity for students who are searching for a deeper understanding of a Christ centered education. Not only are students given the opportunity to learn about the life of Jesus Christ during weekly church services and in classroom teachings, but students are also given opportunities to practice that message on a daily basis. The faculty and staff of Sacred Heart are committed to raising academically, as well as morally rounded students who understand the value of serving the community. The pride in their Catholic upbringing and the quality of the education they receive is evident in the hallways and classrooms they populate.

Throughout the school year we will be sharing upcoming events and information through the bulletin.  Thank you to Fr. James for his support of the School and Parish.


Mr. Jason Acosta, Principal
