There is a press conference at 10AM on the Diocese of Phoenix website
Thank you all for your participation in the Synod process. Over 225 parishioners participated in 18 different groups. The summarized report with the major themes was submitted to the Diocese on April 6. The link to this report may be found below. The other links provide a history of the process. We will now be working to implement the common suggestions.
DO YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ANNULMENT PROCESS?
Just a reminder that a popular current scam all over the country is to send a text or email that purportedly comes from a priest (usually the pastor) asking for monetary help (usually purchase and donation of gift cards for a specified “cause”). Please be assured that no priest from Sacred Heart would ever contact you in that way asking for financial support. The best thing to do is not respond at all, and block the phone number or email. Parish staff has reported this to the authorities several times, but these people are almost impossible to catch. Please share this information with friends and relatives. The best way to foil these scams is to not even respond. Thank you
We continue to livestream the 9AM Mass on Sundays. Mass can be viewed directly on the Parish website. Remember that, if you are able to attend Mass in person, the weekly obligation to attend Mass was fully reinstated on July 1. If you cannot be physically present, please go to the website just before 9AM. From the main page, look under “Watch Mass Online” and select “Click Here for Livestream”. You will then be able to watch Mass live. It is highly recommended that, if you cannot physically attend Mass, that you watch the live Mass rather than a recorded version.
We are now offering the option to watch the recorded Mass, for the most recent week’s Mass only. The video will be overwritten every week. To watch the recorded Mass, select “Click Here for Livestream” and then select “View Most Recent Mass.” Please keep in mind that, depending on staff availability to post the Mass, it may not be immediately available.
We understand that the music can be sporadic coming through the livestream; however, the readings, homily and the Mass itself comes through very clearly using this method rather than Facebook. In addition, this eliminates the need to go through Facebook, which many parishioners did not want to do. The livestream is not perfect, but we are doing the best that we can.
Weekday Mass will be live-streamed to Facebook generally only on Mondays and Thursdays starting the week of July 26.
Thank you for your continued support.
