Mass with Bishop Nevares on the Feast of St. Anthony Claret

2020 is the Claret year and this Saturday, October 24 is the Feast of St. Anthony Claret and marks 150 years since his death. Bishop Nevares, Auxiliary Bishop of Phoenix, will be here at Sacred Heart to celebrate the 5PM Vigil Mass only on Saturday, October 24th. Due to concerns with exceeding church capacity, the 5PM Mass will be live-streamed to the Parish Facebook page. The 9AM Mass on October 25 will also be live-streamed as usual. Bishop Nevares will not celebrate any of the Sunday Masses.

Please consider watching the live-stream Mass if possible to avoid exceeding church capacity as dictated by the Diocese. All usual distancing rules will apply.

God bless you!

Mass/event Guidelines – September 18, 2020

The Bishop has not changed any of the guidelines for Mass attendance. Therefore, we are still limited to 25% capacity in the church and all existing precautions will continue to be taken. The dispensation from attending Mass remains in place at this time.

Tables after Mass can only be outside, not in the Gathering Place.

No events involving food are currently allowed.

Other events (prayer groups, study groups, meetings, etc.) are limited to 50 people (previously 10), providing that Covid precautions can be taken (masks, distancing, etc.). All groups  other than those run by a Sacred Heart employee must sign a facility agreement at the Parish office when they book a room. Each group is responsible for wiping down tables and chairs used after their group meets. Thank you for your cooperation in allowing us to start to have meetings at the Church again.

Larger groups or groups that cannot maintain distancing requirements, may meet in the Church if it is available, but these meetings, like any other, need to be booked through the Parish office.

Matching contribution for Online giving

Heartfelt thanks to all who participated in helping us to meet the $43,230 goal for the matching contribution. As you recall, this contribution was offered to a select few parishes by a generous donor from within the Diocese.¬† After experiencing the effects of the pandemic, the donor’s wish was to increase online giving. Any new online gift (one-time or recurring) and any increased online gift counted toward the match. Between June 1 and August 31, through your beautiful generosity, we achieved 129% of our goal!!

Therefore, in October, Sacred Heart will receive a check for $43,230. One hundred percent of these funds will be restricted for evangelization purposes, including offering free retreats, bringing in strong Catholic speakers and much more.

Thank you as always for your continued generosity!

God bless you all!
