Parish news and events
Sacred Heart will host our second
Diocesan Rosary Congress
Monday, October 5 — Saturday, October 10
. The Rosary Congress is a week-long period of intense prayer consisting of Eucharistic Adoration and hourly Rosary. It is held in response to Our Lady of Fatima's call to conversion, consecration, and prayer — and it is offered in a spirit of reparation, for life, peace, and the deep healing of our Church. Churches across the nation will be joined together in prayer.
